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. 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. 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.

Once you have collected the resultant XML files from all necessary clients by using the NI VLM Import Utility, you can add the information to NI VLM.

Complete the following steps to import client data into NI VLM:

  1. From within NI VLM, select File»Load NI VLM Import Utility Data.
  2. Browse to the location of the import utility files and select all the files that you want to import. You can select multiple files by holding the <Shift> or <Ctrl> keys as you make your selections.
  3. Click Open.

Loading import utility data adds entries to the permission queue. You then need to accept all of the permission requests. Refer to Handling Permission Requests for more information.
