How do I assign StarTeam Native licenses to existing users and new users?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: All
  • Product Component: Server
  • Platform/OS Version: All


To be able to work with StarTeam, users must have a named user license or a concurrent license. By default, users are assigned to use concurrent licensing. The StarTeam Server Administrator uses the User Manager in the Server Administration tool to assign licenses to existing users or to new users.

To assign StarTeam Native licenses to existing users

  1. Open the Server Administration tool by choosing START | PROGRAMS | STARTEAM | STARTEAM SERVER "BUILD".

  3. Do one of the following:
    • Click the Accounts bar in the lower left pane. Then click the User Manager shortcut.
    • Choose Tools Accounts User Manager.

  6. Select the license type from the License drop-down list box:
    • (optionally) The license number of one or more Borland license server slip files for either a named or concurrent license.
    • StarTeam Named. The user has a particular license assigned to them.
    • StarTeam Concurrent. The user is assigned one of the ???floating??? licenses when they log on to StarTeam.
    • Unassigned. Select this ???license type??? when a user has no license.
  7. You may need to edit the properties for the user to change the user name to the network logon name.

The status line at the bottom of the User Manager window provides licensing statistics including the number of named user licenses that are currently available.
