How to Recover a Floating Perpetual License?

Problem:

My LP360 license is in use by a process that is no longer active. For instance, my machine shutdown unexpectedly and left my LP360 license locked. How do I recover a floating perpetual license? For subscription licenses, please refer to the How to Recover a Subscription License or LP360 Portal – License Management.

Probable Resolution #1:

The floating perpetual license will recover itself after a short period of time. Take a brief pause and try again in a few minutes. If you experienced a crash this wait time may be as long as approximately thirty minutes.

Probable Resolution #2:

  1. Have your LP360 License Administrator log into the Client Portal, https://ls24.rlmcloud.com/rlmcloud or https://ls41.rlmcloud.com/rlmcloud or https://ls60.rlmcloud.com/rlmcloud, as specified in your license string.
