  17. 17. SECTION 2 Licensing PV Elite 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 PV Elite.  License Manager - Software-based licensing using SmartPlant License Manager (SPLM). For more information, see SmartPlant License Manager Installation (on page 20). 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 CAS, Inc. 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 PV Elite 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 PV Elite program directory. The documentation files in this sub-directory contain instructions for a variety of networks and operating systems. Note that there are periodic updates to these ESL drivers and they can be downloaded from the Intergraph eCustomer https://crmweb.intergraph.com website. Do not connect two locks to the same computer. The software finds the first lock and returns its code. For example, you have a lock for CAESAR II and CADWorx and plug both into the same computer. You start CAESAR II, but the software might find the CADWorx lock first and return an error. If the same computer is going to run more than one Intergraph CAS, Inc. product, then contact the Sales Department (icaslicenserequests@intergraph.com (see CADWorx Sales - mailto:icaslicenserequests@intergraph.com)) to request that both products be licensed from the same lock. PV Elite User's Guide 17
  18. 18. Licensing ESL Installation The following topics explain how to install the different hardware locks supported by PV Elite. What do you want to do?   Install a local lock (on page 18) Install a network lock (on page 18) Install a local lock 1. Open Windows Explorer. 2. If you are installing CAESAR II, PV Elite, or TANK, navigate to c:Program FilesIntergraph CASProductAssidrv and double-click HASPUserSetup.exe. -ORIf you are installing CADWorx, navigate to c:CADWorx VersionProductAssidrv 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 who 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 PV Elite Help file is a supplement to the NetHasp User's Guide, which is delivered as a PDF(_NETHASP.pdf) in Assidrv folder. Review the PDF file for any issues not addressed in the Help file. 18 PV Elite User's Guide
  19. 19. Licensing 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 1. 2. 3. 4. You must have Administrator privileges to perform the following procedure. Attach the red network hardware lock to the parallel port or USB port of the computer. On the computer where the hardware lock is attached, navigate to the [Product Folder]Assidrv folder and double click Lmsetup.exe. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the NetHASP License Manager as a service. 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 XP/Vista/7. 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. 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 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: PV Elite User's Guide 19
  20. 20. Licensing 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 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 at in the [Product Folder]Assidrv 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 FilesAutoCAD Example: C:Program FilesAutodeskAutoCAD 3. For CADWorx Design, copy the NetHASP.ini file to the [Product Folder]Intergraph CASCADWorx Design folder. 4. Start PV Elite . 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. This file, NetHASPMonitorSetup.exe, is located in the [Product Folder]Assidrv folder. If NetHASP Monitor cannot find the red network ESL, then PV Elite cannot find the red network ESL. SmartPlant License Manager Installation Before beginning the product installation, refer to the delivered SmartPlant License Manager readme file for the latest product installation updates. The readme file is delivered in the top level product folder of the product media. Be sure you have the latest version of the SmartPlant License Manager software before beginning the installation. If you do not have the latest version of the software, you can install it using http://ppmapps.intergraph.com/elicense (http://ppmapps.intergraph.com/elicense). SmartPlant License Manager 2010 (v11) can be upgraded to SmartPlant License Manager 2012 (v12). Any existing license key will be invalidated after the upgrade to SmartPlant License Manager 2012 (v12). You will also need to generate a new computer ID and request a new key. If you upgrade the SmartPlant License Manager 2010 (v11) license computer to a SmartPlant License Manager 2012 (v12) client by mistake, you will have to un-install the 20 PV Elite User's Guide
  21. 21. Licensing SmartPlant License Manager client and reinstall SmartPlant License Manager 2012 (v12) license computer. Hardware Configurations The SmartPlant License Manager licensing computer software should be installed on a stable, single node, hardware configuration (such as a simple PC), with a static IP address, because license key installation and license seat usage authentication depends on the information gathered from the physical hardware. Any automated changes that cause the hardware information not to match with the information used to generate the license key will result in a failure of the authentication process. Virtual (including VMware®), shadowed, mirrored, dynamic, or distributed hardware configurations cannot be used as a SmartPlant License Manager licensing computer. This includes terminal (application) servers, networked and distributed storage management systems, and so forth. When these specialized systems occur in the user's network, the SmartPlant License Manager Server licensing computer should be installed on a separate dedicated hardware configuration system. The SmartPlant License Manager licensing computer should be situated on the user's network where it can be accessed by all systems that are running application software that relies on the SmartPlant License Manager licensing computer for license management. Multiple SmartPlant License Manager licensing computers can be used in the user's network as long as each system is a unique hardware system/installation. If SmartPlant License Manager licensing computers are cloned after the license key has been installed, then the license management will fail on the cloned system. Each SmartPlant License Manager licensing computer requires its own unique license key.   RAID (redundant array of independent disks) and SAN (storage area networks) are not supported on a SmartPlant License Manager license computer. The license computer must have the same version (or later) of SmartPlant License Manager installed as any client computers. In other words, you cannot use a newer version on a client computer to retrieve a license from an older version of SmartPlant License Manager on the licensing computer. The license computer must have the same version (or a newer version) installed than the clients. You must log in as Administrator to install this software. 1. Insert the Intergraph SmartPlant License Manager media. If the media does not start automatically, double-click Setup.exe in the root folder of the media. 2. 3. 4. 5. During SmartPlant License Manager installation automatically turns on a product usage log file in C:Win32AppIngrSPLMbinloggingfileV12.txt. You can change this location and name of this file as it can grow to be a large file. If you stop and restart logging, you need to define the output location. This file can grow very large and users can redefine the location and name of this file. Select SmartPlant License Manager Installation.

Click Install on the Ready to Install the Program page. A status bar displays the progress of the installation on the Status Setup page. 10. Click Finish on the InstallShield Wizard Complete page to complete installation of SmartPlant License Manager. Do not delete any files that are created during installation or as a result of using SmartPlant License Manager. Removal of any files causes the license system to fail and can require install, repair, or possibly removal and re-install of SmartPlant License Manager. 11. Add pdlice.exe to both the license computer and the client computer after installing of SPLM. You may need to remove pdlice.exe and re-add it if you uninstall and reinstall SPLM to upgrade SPLM from previous version to a current version. Otherwise, you may receive a Connection timed out error message when you start your application. You may also see the same error in your scavenging log file. Silent Mode and SmartPlant License Manager Installation Quick Installation Workflow Use this workflow for all products that require SmartPlant License Manager concurrent licensing. The System Administrator completes or gives guidance about most of these steps. Administrator rights are required to install and setup SmartPlant License Manager.

See Also General Topics FAQ (on page 24) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Refer to the SmartPlant License Manager FAQ on the Web in the eCustomer system for the most current FAQ. It is continually updated. Click https://crmweb.intergraph.com/ecustomer_enu and select Services > Download Software Updates > Products > SPLM. Will providing the Machine ID make my computer less secure? 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 TCPIP address. Because the computer identifier cannot be used like a TCPIP address, it is actually more secure than publishing your computer's TCPIP address. Where can I find SmartPlant License Manager and other products to download? SmartPlant License Manager is available from the following web page: https://crmweb.intergraph.com Select Services > Download Software Updates > Products > SPLM. You do not need a serial number to install SmartPlant License Manager. Can I divide the licenses for one LAN into several license computers for the purpose of managing project access, for example, or as coverage in the event that my license computer goes down? Yes, you can divide the licenses. What happens if I install the new license key prior to expiration of the old license key? The new license will overwrite the existing key independent of the expiration date. Is my existing key still running if I regenerate the Machine ID? 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.

  24. 24. Licensing Purchasing Licenses FAQ Do I have to request a software upgrade from my local office before requesting a license? No, you can request licenses without upgrading the software. If you are upgrading software, you must request the upgrade before you request licenses. A license request does not include a software upgrade and a software upgrade does not include a license request. See Also General Topics FAQ (on page 24) General Topics FAQ What is a license machine? 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. How can I tell what version of SPLM was used in the Machine ID or license key file? Please check the starting number in your Machine ID or license key. See the table below. Version Machine ID starts with License key starts with 2012 (v12) 5 3 2010 (v11) 6 2 2008 (v10) 7 1 Do I have to have one license computer for each LAN? No, your configuration is entirely up to you. A persistent network connection is required if you want to connect to a license server that belongs to a different LAN. Can I make an educated guess at my installation date? Yes. Intergraph provides 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 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. What happens if my license machine goes down? You are 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. What happens if the license machine is rebooted in the middle of my design session? Nothing. Licensing does not depend on maintaining a continuous communication link to the license computer. What happens if my local computer goes down after I've obtained a license? 24 PV Elite User's Guide
  25. 25. Licensing 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. I am running out of licenses earlier than I believe I should be. How can I troubleshoot to understand what is happening? Have your users click Scavenge for Keys on the Scavenge Options dialog box or you can type pdlice -n in a Command Prompt window. 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 license computer 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 provides 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. What do I type to see the number of licenses? Click Show Key Status from the Display Options dialog box to show the status of your keys. How can I tell who is using a license? Click Display Status of Reserved License on the Display Options dialog box or in the license log file. We installed a key for three licenses, but we can operate only two licenses at the same time. Why? 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 telnet 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. When an application is on a computer that is disconnected from the network without exiting the product, how long is the license held? 16 hours. How long would a daily license last? Daily license expires after 12 hours. See Also Purchasing Licenses FAQ (on page 24) PV Elite User's Guide 25

  31. 31. SECTION 4 Getting Started and Workflows This section focuses on getting started and the fundamental workflows PV Elite.  Input - Enter information required to define the vessel, its service requirements, and its design guidelines.  Analysis - Translate the input data with design and analysis algorithms, apply the rules of the appropriate code or standard, and generate results.  Output - Present a comprehensive final report of the results. Understanding the Interface The main PV Elite window has a quick access toolbar in the top left corner (indicated with a red 1 in the picture below), which you can customize with the commands that you use most. Directly below the quick access toolbar is a series of ribbons (indicated by the red 2) and panels. On the Home tab, are data file command (3 File Panel (on page 61)), add elements (4 Elements Panel (on page 62)), and add details (5 Details Panel (on page 63)) to the current element. PV Elite breaks a vessel into an assemblage of individual elements—heads, shells, cones, body flanges, and/or a skirt—and the components on these elements. A quick look at the screen (above) shows the data (near red 11) defining one element in the graphic view (red 13). Except for From Node and To Node, the data is common to all vessel wall thickness calculations. The From Node and To Node inputs are necessary to assemble the individual elements into the complete vessel and are automatically assigned by PV Elite. A complete vessel is required if all PV Elite User's Guide 31
  32. 32. Getting Started and Workflows dead and live loads are to be included in the design or analysis. However, PV Elite will run wall thickness calculations on elements without constructing the entire vessel. The body of the screen contains either two or three areas - a table of the Element Data (red 11 above), a table of the Element Additional Data (red 12 above when required) and the graphic area which contains an image of the current status of the entire vessel or the current element (red 13 above). A status bar displays (red 17) across the bottom of the screen and displays the element count, the position and orientation of the current element, quick internal pressure calculations for the current element. When you click in the data areas (red 11 and 12), the Tab key moves the highlight (and control) through its input cells. In most element data areas, press Enter registers the data and move the focus to the next field. The exception is at combo boxes where clicking the arrow displays the available choices. Throughout the program, F1 displays help for the highlighted data item. After you are familiar with these screen controls, a combination of mouse and keystroke commands will provide the most efficient navigation through the program. Some of the data input in PV Elite is controlled through a data grid (red 11 and 12). To enter the data, click the mouse on the data text, such as Inside Diameter, and type the input value. The cursor will not blink over the numeric/alphanumeric values until typing has begun. After the data is entered, press Enter or Tab to proceed. The arrow keys can also be used to navigate between the input fields. The right mouse button is used to select vessel details on the vessel graphic. Combo boxes have the down arrow button at the right end of the input cell. When the 3D View (red 13) is active, a few more keys are available. No special highlight appears, but the string PgUp/PgDn/Home/End displays at the bottom graphics area. This indicates that these keys are now active. The image in the graphics area shows the current state of the input for the vessel model with its elements and the details on these elements. Switch between 2D and 3D views using the tabs at the bottom of the screen (red 16). When the 2D View is active, one of the elements is highlighted. The element data (Element Data 11 and Element Additional Data 12) shown on the screen defines this element. By pressing Page Up or Page Down, the highlight changes from one element to the next through the vessel. Press the Home and End keys to move the highlight to the first and last elements in the vessel. Clicking the left mouse button while selecting the element will also highlight it. After an element is highlighted, detail information for that element may be accessed. With the mouse, click the right mouse button for the existing detail image to display. To add details to the current element, click the appropriate detail on the Details panel (red 5) and enter the necessary data.

Input Processors The Input items are used to define the other types of data that might be necessary for an analysis: design constraints, report headings, general input data, and live (Wind Loads and Seismic Loads) load definitions. Each command activates an input data tab in the bottom-left corner of the window. You can re-order the tabs as you like. The Design Constraints data is important because this is where the overall analysis for this vessel is defined and controlled. The Component Analysis option allows you to enter data and analyze without building a vessel. These are Intergraph's CodeCalc analysis modules, some of which are not incorporated directly into PV Elite. CodeCalc, Intergraph's popular vessel component analysis package is included in PV Elite.
