How Reservations work?
Reserve a certain number of licenses (Altair Units) that can be used by individual users or groups to implement fair/desired distribution of licenses.
These reserved Altair Units would be available to the user/groups they are designated for at all times, and will not be available to the users that are not added to the list.
Reservation of users is done by a first match rule, so if a user belongs to more than one group specified in the rules, the first rule will apply to that user.
Steps to Add Reservations:
Open altair-serv.cfg file located in C:\Program Files\Altair\licensing15.2.0 (or the current version installed on the server) and add the below-mentioned lines at the end of the file.
In the example below. We have reserved 63000 units for users in the group ALTAIR1:- user1 user2 user3
Same way, in another group ALTAIR2 we have reserved 168000 units for the users:- user4 user5
## GROUP_ALTAIR1 ##
RESERVE_USER_GlobalZoneAP_63000 = user1 user2 user2
## GROUP_ALTAIR2 ##
RESERVE_USER_GlobalZoneAP_168000 = user4 user5
Please add similar config lines in your file and restart Altair License Service from Services.msc panel.
