Ansys License Change

  • Announcements

ECN has implemented the new license system for Ansys version 2021. The older versions 17.0 and newer will be supported by the new license, however you may need to reset the license preferences if you are using versions older than 2021R2 starting Dec 14 2021. When running into problems checking out the license, the following commands are recommended to reorder your license preferences.

  • Remove the ansys configuration folder in $HOME.
 $ rm -rf $HOME/.ansys 
  • Reorder the license preferences by running anslic_admin
   $ /apps/cent7/ansys20/shared_files/licensing/lic_admin/anslic_admin

And click "Set License Preferences for User" on the left panel

Please contact RCAC if you have any questions about this license change.
