How to Download and Install ArcGIS 9.3 License Manager
ArcGIS 9.3 is a geographic information system (GIS) software that allows you to create, analyze, and visualize spatial data. To use ArcGIS 9.3, you need to install the ArcGIS License Manager on your computer or network server. The ArcGIS License Manager is a software that manages the licenses for ArcGIS products and extensions. You can choose between two types of licenses: Concurrent Use and Single Use.
Concurrent Use licenses allow multiple users to share a pool of licenses from a network server. Single Use licenses are assigned to individual users or machines and do not require a network connection. To install the ArcGIS License Manager, follow these steps:
- Download the ArcGIS License Manager setup file from Esri’s website.[^1^]
- Run the setup file and follow the instructions on the screen. You can choose a complete or custom installation.
- When prompted, enter your authorization number or file to authorize your licenses.
- Start the ArcGIS License Manager service from the Start menu or the License Server Administrator.
- Configure your firewall to allow communication between the license server and the client machines.
You can now use ArcGIS 9.3 with your authorized licenses. For more information on how to install ArcGIS Desktop or ArcGIS Pro, see Installing ArcGIS Desktop on your computer[^2^] or Download ArcGIS Pro[^3^].
If you encounter any problems with the ArcGIS License Manager, you can use the License Server Administrator to troubleshoot and resolve them. The License Server Administrator is a tool that allows you to view and manage your licenses, start and stop the license service, configure options, and diagnose issues. You can access the License Server Administrator from the Start menu or the system tray.
Some common issues that you may face with the ArcGIS License Manager are:
- Lack of available licenses: This may happen if all the licenses in the pool are in use by other users or machines. You can check the availability of licenses from the Availability folder in the License Server Administrator. You can also use the Borrow/Return feature to temporarily borrow a license from the server and use it offline.
- License expiration: This may happen if your license has reached its expiration date or if you have not renewed your maintenance subscription. You can check the expiration date of your licenses from the Authorization folder in the License Server Administrator. You can also contact Esri Customer Service to renew your subscription or request an extension.
- License corruption: This may happen if your license file is damaged or modified. You can check the status of your licenses from the Diagnostics folder in the License Server Administrator. You can also repair or reauthorize your licenses from the Authorization folder.
- Network connection issues: This may happen if there is a problem with the communication between the license server and the client machines. You can check the network status from the Status Enquiry tab in the License Server Administrator. You can also configure your firewall to allow TCP/IP traffic on port 27000-27009.
