How Can I Find My Server Name and Computer ID for NI Volume License Manager?



Primary Software: Other NI Software>>NI Volume License Manager
Primary Software Version: 2.1
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

Problem:
I need to send my server name, computer ID, and service ID to agreements@ni.com to get my agreement license file, but I do not know what my server name or computer ID are.  How can I find this?

Solution:
Your license server name is also the computer name in Windows that identifies your computer on the network. The computer ID is based upon the MAC address of your server's network device or hard drive serial number. Make sure your network hardware is installed before determining your computer ID. Your service ID is a unique identifier for your agreement with National Instruments. If you have a new Volume License Agreement (VLA), you can find the Service ID on your Sales Order Acknowledgement (SOA). If you already have a VLA, you can find the Service ID within the NI Volume License Manager (3.0 and later).

You can find your server name/computer name and computer ID from either the NI Volume License Manager (VLM), or from the NI License Manager, if you do not currently have VLM setup.
