How to Create and Set Up an Options File

To use SAMreport-Lite, you must configure your license server(s) to generate report logs. In the Network License Manager, you set up an Options file to enable SAMreport-Lite to create report logs.

NoteComplete instructions for setting up an Options file are located in the Autodesk Network Licensing Guide. You can access the guide from your product's Media Browser or in the Help system.

To create and set up an Options file

  1. In a text editor, create a file called adskflex.opt.
  2. In the adskflex.opt file, enter the following syntax on a single line:

    REPORTLOG [+] report_log_path

    REPORTLOG must be uppercase, as shown.

    In the REPORTLOG syntax, “[+]” means that entries to the log file you create are appended rather than replaced each time the Network License Manager is restarted. (It is recommended that you use this option so that you retain a history of log entries.)

    Path names that contain spaces must be enclosed in quotation marks. For example, the syntax REPORTLOG +c:\My Documents\report.rl” means that a report log named report.rl is located in the folder c:\My Documents.

  3. Save the adskflex.opt file to the same location where your license file exists.
  4. Stop and then restart the Network License Manager.
