Description

The Return option lets you return a borrowed license to the server early. Using this feature successfully, requires that several rules are followed:

  1. You must be connected to the server that you initiated roaming from.
  2. The server's ISV port numer must not have changed since roaming was initiated. By default, the ISV server port number is chosen automatically when RLM launches. Avoid this by specifying a fixed ISV port:
    1. Modify the ISV line in your license file to include the port number.
      • ISV pwid port=12345
    2. Restart RLM
 

Caution: If your ISV port number changes while roaming, you may be unable to return your roamed license early. In this case, the roamed license will be returned on the date you specified when you initiated roaming.
