WinCC Para Remote license

Post by Kirvesmies »

How is Para Remote license intended to work (v3.17)?

My setup is one redundant pair of WinCC OA Servers + one Remote Engineering PC.

I installed the Para Remote license to the Engineering station and successfully used GEDI on the Engineering PC via a UI "-m gedi -localLicense".
Then I moved the pararemote lic to Server1 and successfully started GEDI on Server1 via UI "-m gedi -localLicense".
But with the license at the server I cannot start GEDI on the Remote Engineering PC.

I get error "Invalid licenseCodeMeter request for:para (88224,.....CmContainer Entry not found, Error 200"

It seems that:
88224 = Para
88226 = Para Remote
so why doesn't it try to use the Para Remote license

So I want to be able to start Gedi both at the server and at the Engineering station (not at the same time) without moving the license.

The idea of the "pararemote" license is that you have one computer where the pararemote license is installed. This computer is used to connect to several server systems to do a configuration which requires a Ui running in extended mode (-extend, -m gedi, -m para).

Storing the license at the server will not work as the keyword "-localLicense" only looks for a valid license on the computer where the UI is started.
