Hi Jenifer,

Probably the only problem is, that the Windows Server 2016 Standard is not listed as recommended operating system for concurrent licensing in the documentation:

https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fresources.flexera.com%2Finstructio...

I have opened in parallel the support case (Case #01873270) and got an answer already.
The answer is:
"Yes, you can still go ahead and install the FlexNetLicensingServer11_16 on Windows Server 2016 Standard and checkout licenses of InstallShield 2018 from the same".
Based on this answer I can safely install the FlexNetLicensingServer on Windows Server 2016 Standard and expect, that it will work correctly.

Best Regards,
Pawel

Hi @stasiakp ,

What is the issue you face when trying to connect with/set up concurrent server in Windows Server 2016?

 

Can you please post any error string/code specifically if any?

 

Thanks,

Jenifer
