What's New in CAESAR II

The latest CAESAR II release delivers a number of significant new and extended capabilities in response to current market requirements, as well as direct feedback from the growing CAESAR II user community. The following changes have been made to CAESAR II:

CAESAR II 2016, Version 8.00

Technical Changes

The following technical changes for this release may affect the numeric results:

  • Updated the calculations for jobs using the B31.3 2012 code standard to use the Axial SIF (ia) value for any non-bend elements, unless you do not specify an Axial SIF (ia) value. When you leave the Axial SIF (ia) value blank, the software uses the Out-Plane SIF (io) value. (DM-TX-13192)

  • Revised the calculations for wind loads using ASCE 2010 or IBC 2012 to include a 0.6 factor when setting up load cases. Refer to each wind code standard, and ensure the wind speed is in accordance with the specified wind design code. (CR-TX-10344)

  • Corrected the B31.1/B31.3 Verified Welding/Contour Tees configuration setting to only apply this constant for tee flexibilities with B31.1 and B31.3 jobs and not jobs specified for EN-13480. (TR-TX-13501)

  • Revised the allowable stress values in the materials file, cmat.BIN, for materials with ASME B31.3 2012 allowable stress values. (DI-TX-13619)

  • Corrected calculations for sand/gravel soil models using the American Lifetime Alliance (ALA) model type when the height/diameter ratio exceeds the valid range of the ALA equations. The software now limits the height/diameter ratio to less than or equal to 20 for yield loads at 40- to 45-degree angles. In addition, to prevent negative coefficient values, CAESAR II now calculates the coefficient value “e” for 40- to 45-degree angles as a positive value, which is different from the code standard. (TR-TX-14465)

Piping Code Updates

  • ASME B31.1, 2014 Edition (CR-TX-10720, DI-TX-13119)

  • ASME B31.3, 2014 Edition (CR-TX-10721), including the following changes:

    • Updated the software to support a new support condition for static load cases, called an alternate load case. The B31.3 2014 code edition merged the previous Appendix P from the code into the main body of the standard. This appendix addressed systems where supports are active in some conditions and inactive in others. CAESAR II was modified to address these additional sustained conditions using the alternate support condition, which included adding the Alternate SUS/OCC check box on the Static Analysis - Load Case Editor. For more information, see Understanding Alternate Sustained (SUS) and Alternate Occasional (OCC) Load Cases in the CAESAR II User's Guide or the Help. (DI-TX-13679)

    • Revised the software to handle alternative sustained or occasional load cases in the static solver and stiffness matrix, including for linear and nonlinear jobs and more complex load cases. (CR-TX-13680, CR-TX-13838)

What's New in CAESAR II

  • Updated materials, including changes to expansion coefficients (Ec), weld reduction factors (W), and elastic modulus (EM) values. Updated allowable stress values for material 341 (A789 S32750) and 342 (A790 S32750). Corrected low temperature allowable values to match the code standard. (DI-TX-13120, DI-TX-13800, DI-TX-13801)

  • Moved the B31.3 Implement Appendix P configuration setting from SIFs and Stresses > Code Specific Settings to SIFs and Stresses > Legacy Settings as the appendix was merged into the body of the B31.3 code standard.

  • Added a note in the restraints output reports to explain that, when you are using an alternate SUS or OCC load case, the software reports no values on the restraints reports.

  • Added several warnings and notes to the error checking module to alert you to special conditions regarding the Appendix P configuration setting, cold spring values in piping input, and minimum wall thickness calculation issues. (DI-TX-13677)

  • ASME B31.5, 2013 Edition

  • ASME B31.8, 2014 Edition, including a small revision to the biaxial state of stress formula (Sc), according to code Paragraph 833.4. You can find this formula in the CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide. (CR-TX-11871, DI-TX-13125, DI-TX-13651)

  • ASME B31.9, 2014 Edition (CR-TX-10723, DI-TX-13441)

Wind/Seismic Code Updates

  • NBC Seismic Code Standard, 2010 Edition (CR-TX-13497)

  • NBC Wind Code Standard, 2010 Edition, including adding the NBC-2010 option in the Select Wind Code or Profile box on the Wind Loads tab of the Static Analysis - Load Case Editor dialog box, and ensuring that NBC 2010 data appears on the Miscellaneous Data results in the output reports. (CR-TX-11109, CR-TX-11110)

  • ASCE 7 2010, 2nd Edition and IBC 2012 Edition wind code standards, including a change in the wind load reduction factor. You must now enter a 0.6 wind design factor in wind load values. (CR-TX-10344)

Equipment Code Updates

  • API 560, 4th Edition (CR-TX-11947, CR-TX-13176)

  • API 610, 11th Edition (CR-TX-792, CR-TX-13178)

  • API 617, 8th Edition (CR-TX-4365, CR-TX-4366)

  • API 661, 7th Edition (CR-TX-11949, CR-TX-13177)

Piping Input/Hanger Support

  • Added hanger data for the following hanger manufacturers: Hesterberg, Unison, Spring Supports Mfg. Co., Senior, and Wookwang. Also, revised the listing of the manufacturer formerly known as Flexider, to CASTIM 2000. (CR-TX-13017, CR-TX-3923, CR-TX-5071, CR-TX-10192, CR-TX-10625, CR-TX-10879, CR-TX-13027)

  • Improved the Classic Piping Input to display a Pressure 3 value on the interface. Previously, this third pressure value was only accessible by clicking >> to open the

What's New in CAESAR II

extended dialog box. Now, you can enter three sets of temperatures and pressures without having to open a separate dialog box. (CR-TX-10336)

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

  • You can now access third-party tools for better modeling and evaluation from the CAESAR II main menu. Send your CAESAR II job to be translated through FEATools to generate more accurate SIFs and K factors. Compare multiple file results, assess the sensitivity of your model elements, and evaluate nozzle/branch connections with NozzlePRO. (CR-TX-14467)

Load Case Editor

  • Redesigned the Static Analysis - Load Case Editor to improve the user's experience and add more robust functionality when creating and revising load cases for analysis. (CR-TX-11962, DI-TX-13169, DI-TX-13171, DI-TX-13172, DI-TX-13173, DI-TX-13174, DI-TX-13594, DI-TX-13710, DI-TX-13825, DI-TX-14484, DI-TX-13843, DI-TX-14472, DI-TX-14806, DI-TX-14807) Changes included the following features:

    • Removed the Load Case Options tab and merged all options to one List view.

    • Improved and enhanced the List view Easier scrolling and viewing options, as well as filtering on columns, drag-and-drop capabilities, and easier manipulation of load cases.

    • Added a Group Edit view - select and change values on multiple load cases simultaneously.

    • Improved the organization and groupings of inputs on the Wind Loads and Wave Loads tabs to boost the usability.

    • Updated user documentation.

  • Added two new load case templates (.tpls) for the software to use when recommending load cases. You can specify which template the software uses in the Configuration Editor. You can now set CAESAR II to recommend load cases for the LOAD_EXP.TPL (includes all expansion load cases) and the LOAD_ALT.TPL (includes all expansion and alternate SUS/OCC load cases for all available piping codes, except IGE/TD/12). In addition, resolved an issue where the software was not acquiring the HGR stress type for the first load case when it applied recommend load cases for jobs with hanger design and multiple temperatures. (DI-TX-13678)

  • Distance Measurements

    • Added functionality so you can minimize the dialog box while remaining in measuring mode in the piping input. Perform multiple measurements around a model continually without the dialog box blocking any of the model. When you exit the dialog box, the software exits the distance mode and returns you to the previous operator. Also, revised the layout to improve the usability of the dialog box, improved snapping in the Line Drawing (single line) mode, and increased the default font size setting for distance measurement labels on the model for ease of reading. (CR-TX-10373)

    • Updated the Snap To Nearest Node functionality when measuring from piping elements to other DWG objects, such as imported CADWorx models. (CR-TX-5973)

    • Added the ability to measure multiple distances in the Distance dialog box and see all of your measurements simultaneously.

    Press CTRL + click while measuring distances along a

    What's New in CAESAR II

    line of pipe, and the software retains and displays all the measurements you have made.

    (CR-TX-10374)

    3D Model/Graphics

    • Added rotation functionality for S3D or SPR graphics (VUE) model when importing it into CAESAR II using the S3D/SPR Model option in the piping input. You can specify the degrees in which to rotate the loaded S3D or SPR model from the Load S3D/SPR Model dialog box. (CR-TX-4531)

    • Enhanced the S3D/SPR Model functionality so you can now open zipped VUE files (ZVFs) and Stitched VUE files (SVFs) from the Load S3D/SPR Model dialog box. (CR-TX-8586)

    • Added the ability to filter by line numbers from the 3D Plot (Options > Graphical Output) in the Static Output Processor.

    • Improved modeling with single- and multiple- element right-click menus containing frequently-used commands.

      • Select a single element on the model, and right-click to access the Element context menu. This menu includes typical actions performed on elements, restraints, and rigids (such as valve/flanges).

      • Select multiple elements on the model, and right-click to access the Block Operations context menu. This menu includes lets you perform group operations such as rotate, delete, duplicate, renumber, and so forth, on a block of elements.

      • Notice that the software returns the cursor to the next logical action in the piping input after you select one of the right-click menu options, which improves modeling/piping input time. (CR-TX-12995, CR-TX-13033)

  • Added the ability to view only node names on the 3D model by selecting a new option on Node Number drop-down box in the piping input. The Names Only option applies to whatever other node numbering option you have selected. For example, if you select to see Anchors on the model, and you select the Names Only, you see only those anchors with node names and no anchor node numbers. If you select All, you will see all node names specified for anchors, hangers, and restraints, but none of the node numbers for those elements. The software defaults to showing both node names and node numbers. (CR-TX-1257)

  • Material Database Updates

    • Updated materials in accordance with the ASME B31.3 2014 code standard. Updates included changes to many material properties including:

      • Expansion coefficient (Exp.Coeff.) values

      • Weld Strength Reduction Factors (W)

      • Elastic Modulus material value mappings

      • Allowable Stress values for material 341 (A789 S32750) and 342 (A790 S32750)

      • Extended Allowable Stress values for the minimum applicable temperature (DI-TX-13120)

  • Updated the materials file, cmat.BIN, located in C:\ProgramData\Intergraph CAS\CAESAR II\8.00 (on Windows 7). Revised the Allowable Stress values for the many materials in accordance with the ASME B31.3 2012 code standard. (DI-TX-13619)

  • What's New in CAESAR II

    User Interface

    • Updated the look of the CAESAR II splash screen that appears when launching the software to the latest Intergraph standards. Also, updated the CAESAR II icon to the new Intergraph style. (DI-TX-13041, DI-TX-13658)

    Output Reports

    • Updated the Output Processor restraint reports to display a note when the job you are running uses an alternate sustained or occasional load case. In these situations, the software displays zero values in the restraint reports and notes to the user that the results are not a valid structural representation of the system. (DI-TX-14506)

    Documentation/Help

    • Updated the CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide with dates and information for all piping and wind/seismic code editions supported in CAESAR II 2016.

    • Updated portions of the user documentation to the latest Intergraph PPM standards for formats, which included adding more white space and indentation for field property formats. (DI-TX-10490, DI-TX-R3733)

    • Added a comprehensive glossary of terms to the CAESAR II User's Guide to improve understanding of the documentation. (DI-TX-10660)

    • Updated the software to call the .chm-based help when you press F1 on the user interface. Previously, some of the help was in a text-based dialog box. In addition, moved the help for the Stress Isometrics module into the main help file for CAESAR II. (CR-TX-3344, CR-TX-12922, CR-TX-770, CR-TX-3352)

    Overview

    The CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide helps you quickly identify needed information, answer common questions, and resolve common problems. You can copy it as needed.

    CAESAR II is an advanced tool for designing and analyzing piping systems using input forms, on-line help, graphics, and extensive error detection.

    CAESAR II statically and dynamically analyzes large piping models, structural steel models, or combined models. ASME, B31, WRC, and rotating equipment reports are created to provide a complete description of piping system behavior under applied loading conditions. Additional capabilities, such as out-of-core solvers, force spectrum analysis (for water hammer and relief valve solutions), time history, and large rotation rod hangers provide you with the most advanced computer-based piping program available today.

    CAESAR II is continuously enhanced to add new functionality and to modify existing procedures as piping codes are updated. For more information on the most recent changes to CAESAR II, see What's New in CAESAR II (on page 7).

    Licensing

    S E C T I O N

    2

    Licensing

    CAESAR II supports three types of licensing:

    • Local External Software Lock (ESL)

    Hardware-based licensing using a green USB dongle. A local ESL can be moved between computers (such as between desktops and laptops).

    • Network External Software Lock (ESL)

    Hardware-based licensing using a red USB dongle. A network ESL is installed on a computer that is network accessible from the computer, or multiple computers, running CAESAR II.

    • License Manager

    Software-based licensing using SmartPlant License Manager (SPLM). For more information, see SmartPlant License Manager Installation (on page 22). Refer to the SmartPlant License Manager documentation for complete installation and configuration instructions.

    External Software Lock (ESL) Keys

    The External Software Lock (ESL) is the security protection method used by Intergraph The software cannot execute unless an appropriate ESL (green or red USB key) is connected locally to the computer, or to another computer in the network (red USB key).

    The ESL contains the CAESAR II licensing data, and other client-specific information. This information includes the client company name and user ID number. Additional data may be stored on the ESL depending on the specific program and the specific client.

    There are two different ESL types, local and network. Both types of ESLs are intended to be attached to the USB ports of the applicable computers. The appropriate ESL(s) are shipped with your product according to the licensing type purchase.

    • Local ESLs provide the maximum flexibility in using the software in that they can be moved between computers (for example, between desktops and laptops).

    • Network ESLs must be attached to a computer on the network, either a computer or the server. In order for the network to respond to software requests for the ESL, the NetHASP License Manager utility must also be running on the computer where the network ESL is attached.

    The HASP drivers for ESL usage can be found in the sub-directory, ASSIDRV, beneath the analysis products program directory. However, for CADWorx the HASP drivers for ESL usage can be found in the sub-directory, Utilities.

    ESL Installation

    The following topics explain how to install the different hardware locks supported by CAESAR II.

    What do you want to do?

    • Install a local lock (on page 19)

    • Install a network lock (on page 19)

    Install a local lock

    • 1. Open Windows Explorer.

    • 2. If you are installing CAESAR II, PV Elite, or TANK, navigate to c:\Program Files\Intergraph CAS\Product\Assidrv and double-click HASPUserSetup.exe.
      -OR- If you are installing CADWorx, navigate to C:\CADWorx Version\Utilities and double-click HaspHLDriverSetup.exe

    • 3. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

    Install a network lock

    The following list details general information about red network ESLs.

    • The red network ESL should be set up by a Network Administrator or someone familiar with Windows-based networks. If you are not familiar with concepts such as network protocols, broadcast, IP addresses, TCP, UDP, and Windows Services, please do not attempt to setup the red network ESL.

    • The red network ESL does not have to be attached to the network server. We recommend attaching the red network ESL to a computer that is always up and running, can be re-booted without impact to users, and is not the primary computer for any user on the network.

    • If you install an Intergraph CAS product on a network drive for multiple users to access, assign read/write privileges for all users to the [Product Folder]\System folder. Intergraph CAS applications write temporary files to the [Product Folder]\System folder that pertains to the installation. The [Product Folder]\System folder also needs to have read/write privileges for all users.

    • If you are using other network protocols, such as NetBIOS or IPX, check the SafeNet web site for instructions. The only protocol tested with Intergraph CAS products is TCP/IP.

    • The information provided in the analysis products Help file is a supplement to the NetHasp User's Guide, which is delivered as a PDF(_NETHASP.pdf) in Assidrv folder. CADWorx delivers this _NETHASP.pdf in the Utilities folder. Review the PDF file for any issues not addressed in the Help file.

    Notes on Network ESLs

    A network ESL has advantages and disadvantages. One big advantage is that many client computers can access the software from a single server. Additional points for consideration are listed below.

    • Depending on the number of licenses allowed by the network ESL, some users may receive error messages when attempting to access the software. For example, if the ESL has been configured to allow four simultaneous users, an error message stating that no licenses are available when the fifth user attempts to access the software. Consequently, the fifth user is not able to access the software until one of the first four users exits the software and releases a license.

    • Because of the communication procedures between the client computer and the file server, memory access to the network ESL is much slower than to a local ESL. This access time delay only occurs when the software is first started after installation.

    • Because there is no network specific version of the software, the software looks first for a local ESL, and then for a network ESL. This allows both a network ESL and several local ESLs to be used on the same system. This transparent ESL access procedure allows a single version of the software to be used on the network and on remote computers.

    • We recommend that only 70 to 80 percent of the required licenses be assigned to a network ESL, with the remaining 20 to 30 percent assigned to local ESLs. This enables the local ESL to be moved between computers. If all of the licenses are on the network ESL, a user must be logged into the network to access the software. As such, a few local ESLs provide much greater operating flexibility.

    NetHASP License Manager / NETHASP.INI Instructions

    Licensing  The information provided in the analysis products Help file is a supplement to

    You must have Administrator privileges to perform the following procedure.

    • 1. Attach the red network hardware lock to the parallel port or USB port of the computer.

    • 2. On the computer where the hardware lock is attached, navigate to the analysis products' Assidrv folder, and then double-click Lmsetup.exe. For CADWorx, navigate to the [Product Folder]\Utilities to access LMsetup.exe. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the NetHASP License Manager as a service.

    • 3. The NetHasp License Manager starts automatically each time you re-boot the computer. This occurs because the NetHasp License Manager is set up as a start-up service inside Windows 7/8. To verify that the service is running, click Start > Control Manager > Administrative Services, and then double-click Services. In the Services dialog box, locate HASP Loader in the Name list. The HASP Loader Service starts even if no one logs into the computer.

    • 4. Determine what protocols the NetHasp License Manager is listening to. The NetHasp License Manager displays a message similar to those list below: Server is listening to IPX : Loaded Server is listening to TCP/IP : Loaded

    Licensing

    Server is listening to NetBIOS : Loaded

    • Loaded means that this protocol is active on the computer.

    • 5. Open the Activity Log menu. This displays the activity log that confirms which protocols are loaded. Do not be alarmed if the activity log reports that the NHSRV.ini file is not found.

    • 6. Use the box in the top-left corner of the activity log to display only the information specific to each protocol. Open the activity log for the protocol you want to use, and verify that it contains no error messages.

    • 7. For TCP/IP protocol, the activity log should report something similar to the following: Server IP address: 111.111.111.111 Server Host Name: PDC_NT01

    • 8. To speed up response time to the network key, use the Remove menu to unload any protocols that you are not planning to use with the NetHasp License Manager.

    Modify NetHASP.ini for TCP/IP Protocol

    Licensing Server is listening to NetBIOS : Loaded Loaded means that this protocol is active

    If you still cannot access the network ESL you need to configure this NetHASP.ini file. You must know the IP address of the computer where the red network hardware lock is attached. All lines with a semi-colon at the start are considered not used.

    • 1. Modify the NetHASP.ini file, located in the analysis products' Assidrv folder and in CADWorx's Utilities folder under [NH_COMMON], as follows:

      • a. NH_TCPIP = Enabled

    AND under [NH_TCPIP]

    • b. NH_SERVER_ADDR = 111.111.111.111

    • c. NH_USE_BROADCAST = Disabled

      • You may also have to modify other entries in the [NH_TCPIP] section depending on your network setup. The most common entry to modify is NH_TCPIP_METHOD.

    • 2. Copy the NetHASP.ini file to the AutoCAD folder. Example: C:\Program Files\AutoCAD Example: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD

    • 3. For CADWorx Design, copy the NetHASP.ini file to the [Product Folder]\Intergraph CAS\CADWorx Design folder.

    • 4. Start CAESAR II.

    Licensing

    Troubleshooting Network Locks

    • 1. Verify that the NetHasp License Manager is running on the computer where the red network ESL is attached.

    • 2. Verify the protocols that NetHasp License Manager is broadcasting. Make sure that these protocols are installed on the client computers.

    • 3. Install and run the Monitor Utility. You can find the NetHASPMonitorSetup.exe located in the analysis products' Assidrv folder. For CADWorx, you can find the NetHASPMonitorSetup.exe in the [Product Folder]\Utilities. If NetHASP Monitor cannot find the red network ESL, then CAESAR II cannot find the red network ESL.

    Q: What new features were added in SmartPlant License Manager 2012?

    A: We added a new counted type seat for the license key. We also added new options in the SmartPlant License Manager interface and improved some existing functions.

    Q: Where can I find SmartPlant License Manager and other products to download? A: SmartPlant License Manager is available from Intergraph Smart Support Online (https://smartsupport.intergraph.com). Select View Downloads > SmartPlant License Manager. You do not need a serial number to install SmartPlant License Manager.

    Q: What do I need to do to receive a License Key?

    A: You need to generate a Machine ID from your license machine and submit it to Intergraph to request a license key. After installing SPLM 2012 v12, you can find the Generate Machine ID utility on your Start menu (Programs > Intergraph SmartPlant License Manager).

    To prevent a loss in production, you can pre-request a new SPLM 2012 license key before upgrading your SPLM 2010 or previous version to SPLM 2012. You can download the utility (splmGenMachineID.exe) from Intergraph Smart Support Online (https://smartsupport.intergraph.com).

    Licensing

    Downloads > SmartPlant License Manager > Technical Notes and Whitepapers > SmartPlant License Manager 2012 (v12)).

    Q: What is a license machine?

    A: The license machine is the computer where the license key is loaded; it can be a standard computer or a server. The license key tells the license machine how many licenses it can issue. Clients of a license machine are computers where SmartPlant License Manager is installed and pointing to the license machine. The computer where you start the software (for example, PDS or SmartPlant P&ID) asks the license machine for a license. If a license is available, the license machine provides it. If all licenses are in use, the client is not granted a license.

    Q: What is the Machine ID?

    A: The Machine ID is a collection of hardware and software identifiers that together allow a machine to be uniquely identified. The Machine ID is used to manage licenses. The information is used to generate the license key and is not useful to other software programs.

    Q: Do I need to have SmartPlant License Manager installed in order to generate the Machine ID?

    A: No. The utility used to generate the machine identifier is included in the SmartPlant License Manager installation but can be downloaded separately without installing SmartPlant License Manager. The utility is used to generate the Machine ID, which is used to produce keys for the license machine. SmartPlant License Manager and the new licenses may be installed at the same time, minimizing disruption and down time.

    Q: Will providing the Machine ID make my computer less secure?

    A: No. The Machine ID allows the license manager to uniquely identify your computer from a collection of hardware and software identifiers without explicitly publishing your computer's TCP/IP address. Because the computer identifier cannot be used like a TCP/IP address, it is actually more secure than publishing your computer's TCP/IP address.

    Q: Is my existing key still running if I regenerate the Machine ID?

    A: Yes, but you will not be able to reinstall the old key. You will need to request a new key for the new machine identifier.

    Q: I currently have SPLM v11 installed. Can I install SPLM v12 on top of this version? What will happen with my current license key?

    A: Yes, you can over-install SPLM 2012 v12 on your current SPLM 2010 v11 license machine or client, but you will need to generate a new machine ID, and request and install a new key after you upgrade to SPLM 2012 on your license machine.

    Q: Can I pre-request a SPLM v12 license key to prevent production down time? I currently have SPLM v11 installed.

    A: Yes, you can pre-request a SPLM v11 license key prior to upgrading to SPLM v12 on your license machine. You need to download the Generate Machine ID executable for SPLM 2012 (splmGenMachineID.exe) first to get a v12 machine ID and then request a SPLM v12 license key.

    Detailed instructions can be found in “Important Upgrade Info for SPLM 2012.pdf." Be sure

    to read this document first before upgrading your license machine.

    Both the upgrade instructions and the Generate Machine ID executable for SPLM 2012 (splmGenMachineID.exe) can be downloaded from Intergraph Smart Support Online

    If you are experiencing problems with your SPLM machine configured in a virtual environment you will ask you to configure a non virtualized environment. Only after the problem is known to be reproducible in a non-virtualized environment will Intergraph react to the problem. To troubleshoot your virtual configuration problems may require a consulting services agreement and might not be covered under your regular maintenance agreement.

    Q: Is the SmartPlant License Manager User’s Guide delivered with the software products?

    A: Yes. The SmartPlant License Manager Installation and User’s Guide is included with all products that require SmartPlant License Manager. The document is also available with the product documentation on Intergraph Smart Support Online (https://smartsupport.intergraph.com).

    This document explains the new features, client and license machine installations and functions, upgrade instructions, license control, error messages, and troubleshooting.

    Q: What is license stacking?

    A: License stacking gives an administrator the ability to input two license keys (this month's and next month's), each with its own quantity of licenses for each of the next two months. This gives system administrators much more freedom and helps ensure there is no down time.

    Q: Do I need to remove the existing key in order to input two license keys for two months?

    A: No. You schedule next month’s licenses this month. Get a new key, create the bat file, and submit it to install. Once the installation date/time has passed, the new key will be the one installed.

    pdlice -a keyvaluehere >>outputfilehere

    Submit the bat file to either the AT services or a batch queue to run at a specified time.

    Q: How are the number of licenses for a given license machine determined?

    A: The number of licenses covered by a license key equals the total number of licenses that you have purchased or are leasing for each LAN ID listed for that license server. Intergraph records determine the correct number of licenses for the key.

    To change the number of licenses for a LAN, use the License Key Request Form found on the following web page:

    http://www.intergraph.com/ppm/products.aspx

    Sending this form does not change your number of licenses; it notifies Intergraph that you want to do so. A valid purchase order is required to increase the number of licenses for your LAN.

    Q: How do I check the number of licenses in a license key?

    A: On your licensing machine, click Show Key Status on the Display Options dialog box to show the status of your keys.

    Q: How can I tell who is using a license? A: Click Display Status of Reserved License on the Display Options dialog box. Q: Does the installation date have to be precise?

    Licensing

    A: The key can be installed any time during the 72-hour period that begins with the installation date you provide. For example, if you request 01-July-2008 as the installation date, the key can be installed on 01-July, 02-July, or 03-July.

    Q: Can I make an educated guess at my installation date?

    A: Yes. Intergraph will provide a key within 48 hours of receipt of your request (via mail or phone). Please ensure that the date you request is the actual date that you will install the key, making sure that all necessary software is available and loaded before that date. We request that you notify us as early as possible.

    Q: What happens if my licensing machine goes down?

    A: You will be unable to check out licenses from this machine until it is back in use. Processes that already have licenses checked out are not affected by the fact that the license computer is unavailable.

    It is possible in critical situations to request emergency licenses from Intergraph. They are installed on the client computer rather than a licensing machine. Contact Intergraph Support at 1-800-766-7701 or your local Intergraph office for more information.

    Q: What happens if the license machine is rebooted in the middle of my design session?

    A: Nothing. Licensing does not depend on maintaining a continuous communication link to the license machine.

    Q: What happens if my local computer goes down after I've obtained a license?

    A: If the scavenger cannot contact the client computer during scavenging, the license is marked for a 16-hour hold before it is released. The scavenger periodically advances this 16-hour timer for each license. It is important to schedule the scavenger to run regularly, at least every hour or two. If the client is in contact sooner, the hold is voided and normal scavenging takes over.

    Q: I am running out of licenses earlier than I believe I should be. How can I troubleshoot to understand what is happening?

    A: The Admin user can run Scavenge for Keys on the Scavenge Options dialog box or you can type pdlice -n in a Command Prompt window on the license machine.

    If you think that client nodes are improperly holding onto licenses, examine the results of the pdlice -M command. This shows you which client nodes have licenses checked out. If a client computer has no plant design-related activity and it is still holding licenses, rebooting that client and then scavenging from the licensing machine may free some licenses.

    If possible, find out what was processing when the job stopped. This information can help you and/or Intergraph determine the underlying cause of the termination. Save the output of any scavenging process that returns a license. This information will provide the reasons why the license was returned. The output of the scavenger includes the following information:

    nodename, product tag, batch mode (Yes/No), process ID, and checkout time.

    Q: Can SmartPlant License Manager be installed on a laptop computer?

    A: Yes, SmartPlant License Manager can be installed on a laptop and a laptop can be used as a SmartPlant License Manager client or licensing machine.

    • 2. Prepare the laptop for machine ID generation: Disable all the network connections except the loopback adapter before generating the Machine ID. Do not attempt to generate the Machine ID more than once. (Please refer to the corresponding section in the SmartPlant License Manager Installation and User's Guide about how to set up the loopback adapter.). Also, make sure the loopback adapter is the first on your network connection list (Control Panel > Network Connections > Advanced Settings).

    • 3. Select Generate Machine ID from the Intergraph SmartPlant License Manager program group.

    • 4. Send the Machine ID output to Intergraph to request a license key. If all the previous steps described in this section were performed correctly, SmartPlant License Manager should work if the laptop is connected to the network or not. No extra step is required when the laptop is connected back to the network.

    Q: Is there a limit for the number of seats that can be generated per key? A: The limit is 32766 seats per license key. Q: Can I run the executable of SmartPlant License Manager or SmartPlant products in XP compatible mode? A: No, you should not set SmartPlant License Manager or SmartPlant products in XP compatible mode. If you do, your SmartPlant products may return the following error:

    SPLM Failed [Creating/Stating] The parameter is incorrect. SOFTWARE\Intergraph\Pdlice_etc

    Q: When an application is on a machine that is disconnected from the network without exiting the product, how long is the license held?

    A: 16 hours. Q: Which products can have daily licenses? A: Currently PDS and S3D support daily licenses. Q: How long would a daily license last? A: A daily license expires after 12 hours.

    Q: We installed a key for three licenses, but we can operate only two licenses at the same time. Why?

    A: There can be several reasons.

    Click Display Status of Reserved License on the Display Options dialog box to determine the number of licenses that your key contains.

    Click Scavenge for Keys on the Scavenge Options dialog box to scavenge for the third license that you are unable to use.

    Verify that clients and servers can ping to each other. Look for anomalies such as two nodes on the network with the same name or the reuse of an old name for a new computer, but with some traces of the old computer still existing in files on the network.

    Q: What is the difference between the Select License Machine for Client command and the Select License Machine for Client (Current User) command?

    A: The Select License Machine for Client command updates the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) list of license machines so that all users will have the same list of license servers. This command requires administrator privileges.

    Licensing

    The Select License Machine for Client (Current User) command updates the HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) list of license servers for a specific user. This command runs with non-administrator/standard user privileges. There can be a different list of license servers for each user on a machine.

    Licensing The Select License Machine for Client (Current User) command updates the HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) list

    HKCU takes precedence over HKLM. In other words, if HKCU is set, SmartPlant License Manager does not use the license machines in HKLM.

    Q: How does the PDLICE_WAIT variable work?

    A: For interactive jobs, the jobs do not wait for licenses if none are available. You are notified immediately that the jobs did not start. You can retry.

    For batch jobs, the variable PDLICE_WAIT can be used to change the wait time. By default, a batch job will wait for up to 12 hours for a license to become available. You can change the wait time by setting the environment variable on the client computer from which the license was attempted to be obtained.

    Using the SmartPlant License Checkout Utility

    The SmartPlant License Checkout utility allows you to obtain licenses for ICAS for use on a non-networked computer (for example, a remote laptop). Using this utility allows you to run ICAS without a network connection to the license machine. Each user on a server can check out a license on that machine. When you check out a license, the license and expiration information are stored for use by the application. Your Intergraph application determines the license information location and whether the checkout operation applies to all users or a single user on the same system.

    Each time you start the product during the checkout period, a message displays the expiration date for the checked out license. When the checkout period for the license expires, the application attempts to request a license using SmartPlant License Manager the next time you start the product. For example, after the license expires at 11:59 PM on the expiration date, the next time you start the product, it attempts to access the SmartPlant License Manager license machine for base and module licenses prior to running.

    S E C T I O N 3 Using the SmartPlant License Checkout Utility The SmartPlant( https://smartsupport.intergraph.com ) .  You must install and configure SmartPlant License Manager before checking out a license.  You must have administrator privileges to setup and install the utility.

    Network Installations

    The installation program treats a network drive no different than a local hard drive. Specify the target installation drive and folder, and the software will be copied and expanded accordingly.

    Some networks protect installation directories from subsequent modification by users. This involves setting the access rights to the installation folder to read, share, and scan. Because Intergraph CAS, Inc. software uses data files specific to the installation (that is, accounting files, material files, and so forth) that a user may need to modify, these files cannot be installed in a typical write-protected installation folder.

    Therefore, CAESAR II installs these data files in a System subfolder, located in the following location of your root directory based on your platform.

    Windows 7/Vista \Program Data\Intergraph CAS\CAESAR II\Version Number\System Windows XP

    \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Intergraph CAS\CAESAR II\Version Number\System

    • While the actual name of the program's installation folder can revised when you install the software, the CAESAR II SYSTEM subfolder name is fixed as it is automatically created by CAESAR II. If you rename the CAESAR II SYSTEM subfolder, CAESAR II fails run and generates an error report.

    • Do not confuse this CAESAR II SYSTEM subfolder is not the primary, top-level SYSTEM directory that contains the network operating system. Consult your system administrator for further clarification.

    After the software has been installed on the network drive, the installation program launches the CAESAR II Configuration Editor, which generates a default configuration file.

    Troubleshoot Installation

    The following section details quick resolutions to CAESAR II installation issues.

    Why do I get an error message saying CAESAR II cannot locate the configuration file when I try to run CAESAR II?

    The Windows 8 platform installs with .NET Framework 4.0 by default. However, CAESAR II requires .NET Framework 3.5.1 to run. From Windows 8, you can enable .NET Framework 3.5.1 through the Control Panel.

    Installation Troubleshoot Installation The following section details quick resolutions to CAESAR II installation issues. Why
