Problem:

Support for borrowing licenses is available upon request for DevPartner 10.5 and earlier version concurrent licenses. With the migration of the licensing system used by DevPartner from DLM to CES Safenet Sentinel there will still be a need for borrowing licensese for users without network access to the CES Safenet Sentinel License Server.

Resolution:

The standard DevPartner 10.6 concurrent license key has support for Commuting, which has the same functionality as Borrowing under DLM in prior versions of DevPartner. To commute a license to the client PC, open up the Micro Focus License Administration Utility and navigate to the Commuter Tab. Select on the Product to be Commuted, for example DPS Professional 10.6 and click on the "Commute" button. The license will not be available for any other user or machine until the license is returned. To return the license, open up the Micro Focus License Administration Utility and navigate to the Commuter Tab. Select on the Product to be Commuted, for example DPS Professional 10.6 and click on the "Return License" button.
