Math and Geosciences Matlab license server moved (changes required)

The engineering Matlab license server is unaffected.  

You'll need to update your license file to the new server location.  To do this you'll need to find your current Matlab license file directory.  
The file will be named network.lic or license.dat 

Matlab license file locations
( in all cases replace R2011b with your installed version) 

    WIndows XP or Windows 7 
        32bit     c:\Program FIles\Mathlab\R2011b\licenses
        64bit      c:\Program FIles\Mathlab\R2011b\licenses    or  c:\Program FIles (x86)\Mathlab\R2011b\licenses

        /Applications/MATLAB_2011b/licenses/    (may have to use show package contents or the terminal) 
More info on locations:   

You can update your license file in one of two ways:
  •  1) or replacing the license file with the attached file.  
    • remove any existing license.dat files
    • Put the license_math_geo.lic file attached below in the same directory
    • save and restart Matlab
  •  2)  find and update your current license file with the new server line using a text editor.  
      • Remove old server lines and include the following text, 
                         SERVER lic1.cose.isu.edu 52540094e3e8 27000
      • save and restart Matlab 

Please email cosehelp@isu.edu if you need help.

Please let me know if this affects you.  282-5162
