  • Answer

    There can be various reasons for the CLONED status. To solve this problem, please provide us with the following information.

    • Was the NET-SOFTLOCK operated on a virtual machine or a physical server?
    • Have you modified the hardware?
    • When operating on a VM, has it been moved to a different host?

    Please send us the C2V file of NET-SOFTLOCK. To do this, open the Admin Control Center on the server at http://localhost:1947. Among Sentinel Keys, you can find the CLONED NET softlock and a "C2V" button at the end of the line.
  • Answer

    The following procedure must be used to remove the cloned license:
    1. Go to http: // localhost: 1947 to access the Admin Control Center (ACC).
    Second In the "Admin Control Center" (ACC), locate the target license "Sentinel SL AdminMode".
    Third Click on the "Certificates" button on the right side of the SL description.
    4th Record the name of the corresponding certificate and the path to the certificate base in the Certificates section: The default path is: C: / Program Files (x86) / Common Files / SafeNet Sentinel / Sentinel LDK / installed

First Steps

First steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.

The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
