Complete the NI VLM Getting Started Wizard to install your agreement license file and set basic server settings. Configure NI VLM preferences such as administrator information, port numbers, overdraft settings, email server settings, and custom fields. Define a set of clients (groups) that use the same set of software. Gather client information such as user and computer names, Computer ID, and email address, using the NI VLM Import Utility. Import the client information into NI VLM using the NI VLM Import Utility. Create disconnected license files to distribute to your clients. Install the disconnected license files onto client computers. Create Volume License Installers to distribute NI software to clients connected to your network. Decide whether to have NI VLM handle automatically any permission requests generated by Volume License Installers or whether to handle permission requests manually. Send your VLA Log to NI to complete NI VLM configuration and enable technical support for your clients. Decide how you want to distribute licenses to your clients. If clients are connected to your network, you can use Volume License Installers. If clients are not connected to your network, you can create disconnected license files.

Note  You must have Administrator privileges on the server in order to install and use NI VLM.
