You can choose to download only the software daemons or use the MATLAB installer to update the network license manager.
If you already have the network license manager installed and configured, you can download new network license manager daemons directly to your server instead of using the MathWorks® installer to install the latest version of the software. The license manager daemons include:
lmgrd — Network license manager daemon
mlm — MathWorks vendor daemon
Stop the network license manager as described in Step 1.
Download the ZIP file for your platform from License Manager Download on the MathWorks website.
Extract the files from the ZIP file to the network license manager folder. The default location for the license manager files is the
matlabroot is your MATLAB installation folder and
$ARCH is a platform-specific subfolder.
Restart the network license manager, and configure it as needed.
