General Information

Decide if you want to restrict Origin usage with an options file. For example, you may want to allow only specified users to run Origin, or to borrow Origin. Or you may want to restrict specified users from running Origin. Or perhaps your organization has multiple groups of Origin users, and you want to restrict the number of users in each group who can run Origin concurrently. For each of these needs, you can use an options file.


Origin supports the use of an options file as described in Macrovision's FLEXnet Licensing End User Guide, Chapter 5, "The Options File".


We recommend that you name the options file orglab.opt and that you save the options file into the same folder as your Origin license file. If you do this, then you do not need to make any change to your license file.


Here are some keywords you might want to use in the options file:

EXCLUDE - Deny a user access to a feature.

EXCLUDE_BORROW - Deny a user the ability to borrow licenses

EXCLUDEALL - Deny a user access to all features served by this vendor daemon

USER - Define a user for use with any options.

GROUP - Define a group of users for use with any options.

HOST - Define a host for use with any options

HOST_GROUP - Define a group of hosts for use with any options

INCLUDE - Allow a user to use a feature.

INCLUDE_BORROW - Allow a user to borrow licenses.

INCLUDEALL - Allow a user to use all features served by this vendor daemon

MAX - Limit usage for a particular group.

Examples

The following example restricts users from running Origin based on IP address:

HOST_GROUP exclude_these_computers 10.10.10.37 10.10.10.57

EXCLUDEALL HOST_GROUP exclude_these_computers


The following example restricts users from running Origin based on computer name:

HOST_GROUP exclude_these_computers computer1 computer2

EXCLUDEALL HOST_GROUP exclude_these_computers


The following example defines a group of users that can run OriginPro, and then a second group of users that can also run OriginPro in borrow mode.

GROUP origin_users user1 user2 user3 user4 user5 user6

INCLUDEALL GROUP origin_users

GROUP origin_borrowers user1 user4

INCLUDE_BORROW OriginPro8.6 GROUP origin_borrowers


The following example reserves one concurrent license for the specified user (Bill). This is case sensitive.

RESERVE 1 OriginPro86 USER Bill


In the next example, concurrent licenses are reserved for a group of users. In this example, there is only one member of the group. The user name is not case sensitive.

GROUPCASEINSENSITIVE ON

GROUP ReservedUsers bill

RESERVE 1 OriginPro86 GROUP ReservedUsers


And in this example, we reserve concurrent licenses for users, machines and ip addresses, all case insensitive.

GROUPCASEINSENSITIVE ON

HOST_GROUP ReservedHostMachines einstein currie galileo 123.123.123.123 456.456.456.456

GROUP ReservedUsers Jack Jill Hansel Gretel

RESERVE 1 OriginPro86 USER bill

RESERVE 4 Origin86 GROUP ReservedUsers

RESERVE 1 OriginPro86 HOST kepler

RESERVE 5 Origin86 HOST_GROUP ReservedHostMachines
