Synopsys Common Licensing (SCL)
Synopsys Common Licensing (SCL)
Synopsys Common Licensing (SCL) provides a single method of obtaining
licenses used by all Synopsys tools. SCL reduces licensing administration
complexity, minimizing the effort you expend in installing, maintaining, and
managing licensing software for Synopsys tools.
Note:
It is recommended that you download and install the latest
version of SCL. To download the latest version of SCL, click
"Synopsys Common Licensing" from the Download Center.
The following sections describe:
■
Installing, Administrating, and Troubleshooting SCL
■
SCL Documentation
Installing, Administrating, and Troubleshooting SCL
For information on installing, administrating and troubleshooting SCL see the
Synopsys Licensing QuickStart Guide. The Synopsys Licensing Quick Start
provides information on Downloading & Installing SCL, and other information
that is necessary to administer and troubleshoot SCL.
The Documentation section provides links to the installation readme, release
notes, administration guide and the FLEXnet User Manual.
Note:
Install a single copy of SCL on your license server to be used with
all Synopsys tools. Installation of Synopsys tools and SCL is not
order dependent. That is, you can install SCL before or after you
install your Synopsys tools. However, you cannot use any
Synopsys tools reliant on SCL until you have installed and
configured SCL.
SCL Documentation
The Synopsys Common Licensing Installation Notes, Synopsys Common
Licensing Release Notes, and the Synopsys Common Licensing Administration
Guide, are also available in PDF format in the SCL installation directory at
scl_root/docs/scl.
