Configuring an ArcMap License Server

CONFIGURING AN ARCMAP LICENSE SERVER

You must configure a license server for ArcMap in order to open and run ArcMap. You will do this by running the “ArcGIS Administrator” program on your computer and pointing your copy of ArcMap to point at the license server provided by TAMU GeoSAT.

This license server is only provided for TAMU students, and will require your computer to be on the the TAMU network to work. If you are on-campus, you are already on the TAMU network. If you are working from off-campus, you will need to VPN into the TAMU network.
