Return a license

You can return a license to the server at any time before it expires. This will make the license available for another client computer.

To return licenses:

1. Select all applications in the Terra License Manager window for which you want to return the license.

2. Select Return to server command from License pulldown menu.

This sends a return message to the server. A license disappears from the client computer if the server confirms receiving the license.

There is no other way of returning a license than with the License Manager. Otherwise, a license becomes only available again if the its validity ends on the client computer. Therefore, it is recommended to request a license only for a reasonable short period of time. This avoids that licenses are blocked by a client computer that runs into problems, breaks or becomes otherwise unusable.
