What’s New with Open iT Software Suite 2020 (Version 9.5)

New Support and Improvements

Autoconfigurators – detect running license managers and vendors under it in the Open iT Client host and automatically configure the Open iT Client for those license managers. In this new version, DSLS and LM-X license managers are now supported.

Support for Autodesk® Cascading Sequences – identifies the cascading sequences of Autodesk and eliminates false denials generated by this mechanism. This also enables the reporting of which license a user has tried to check out at the beginning and which license the user has ended up checking out.

Improvements on Core Server Processing Pipeline – reduces the Core Server’s processing time every midnight by frequently archiving the incoming data ahead of time.

CLIMS Updates

  • In addition to FlexNet and Reprise LM, DSLS and LM-X license managers are now supported in CLIMS.
  • Remote upload of license files
