We all know that when we configure a network license manager, we use the Configuration using Services option. We basically need Administrator access on the server to update it. I have not investigated the Configuration using License File until this past week.
What can it do? It can update license file on server without access to server! Just review the steps here:
Here is a video demo of the process:
You will need access to the share folder (license file location), update the license file and you can remotely re-read the new updated license file on the server without actually accessing it. A benefit is that you can update an options file parameters when you 're-read' it.
