Administer Network Licenses

Install and run the network license manager, configure licenses and modify license options, update network licenses

Organizations that need to license multiple users for MATLAB® often use a network license, either a Network Named User license (which specifically names users who can use the software) or a Concurrent license (which provides a certain number of keys to use MATLAB). A Campus-wide license may be used at educational institutions.

Although organizations may have a mix of individual and network licenses, network licenses must be managed by a network license manager. The network license manager takes care of managing license resources. You can install and run the network license manager on a dedicated license server or on the cloud, depending on your MATLAB configuration. If you are installing on a license server, verify that your license server meets the MATLAB License Manager Requirements.
