This page provides information on configuring the Chaos License Server.

 

Overview


If you are running the License Server on a different machine, you need to tell V-Ray where to look for it. This page describes how to do that on the different operating systems V-Ray can be installed under.

 

Windows

You can change the license settings of V-Ray which specify the location of the license server. To do that run the V-Ray license client configuration utility from Windows Start > All Programs > Chaos Group > V-Ray [host app] > Licensing > Change V-Ray client license settings or Windows Start > All Programs > Chaos Group > V-Ray [host app] > Change license settings (the path may be different depending on the host application).

This will show you the window below, where you can specify the IP address of the machine that is running the License Server. Please do not change the connection port that is set by default to 30304.

 

 

For example, if the license server machine has an IP address of 10.0.0.100, you have to put that address in the “License server” field, under the tab “Primary license server”.


macOS

Depending on the host application, the setvrlservice program is found either in /Applications/ChaosGroup/V-Ray/[host app]/bin/ or /Applications/[path to host app]/vray/bin/ directory (the path may differ depending on the host application that V-Ray is installed for). Run setvrlservice and use the -server=[server name or IP] and -port=[port number] options to change your license settings, where [server name or IP] is the IP address or name of the machine where the License Server is running without the enclosing '[' and ']' characters. The default port number is 30304.

Examples
$ /Applications/ChaosGroup/V-Ray/MODO_x64/bin/setvrlservice -server=10.0.0.100 -port=30304
$ /Applications/Autodesk/maya2017/vray/bin/setvrlservice -server=10.0.0.100 -port=30304

This setting is per user; if there are many users running V-Ray on the machine, you will need to set the license settings for each of them.

 

 

Linux

Depending on the host application, the setvrlservice program is found either in /usr/[path to host app]/vray/bin or /usr/ChaosGroup/V-Ray/[host app]/bin/ directory (the path may differ depending on the host application that V-Ray is installed for). Run setvrlservice and use the -server=[server name or IP] and -port=[port number] options to change your license settings, where [server name or IP] is the IP address or name of the machine where the License Server is running without the enclosing '[' and ']' characters. The default port number is 30304.

Example
$ /usr/autodesk/maya2017/vray/bin/setvrlservice -server=10.0.0.100 -port=30304

This setting is per user; if there are many users running V-Ray on the machine, you will need to set the license settings for each of them.

In a Linux OS environment, it is recommended to increase the default limit of "open files" to at least 10000. See how on the Advanced Installation page.
