Designing the deployment

You must decide how many servers to distribute permits from and how many permits to make available from each server for each application. The number of permits that you make available to users can ensure that your organization remains compliant with your license agreement.

About this task

You can use an ordinary workstation as a permit server; dedicated server hardware is not required. For server hardware and software requirements, see Sentinel RMS License Manager specification. You might already have a server within your network that runs the SafeNet Sentinel RMS License Manager software.

For more information about deployment, see Deployment scenarios.

A permit is locked to specific server hardware. For more information about permits, see Permits.


  1. Select which servers to distribute permits from.
  2. Decide how many permits to allocate to each server for each application.
