Description

This tutorial collection details system administration for both single-machine and network license users of Mathematica.

Single-machine licenses are used for standalone installations of Mathematica (those that do not connect to a license server). For environments with single-machine licenses, Mathematica system administration consists of installing and customizing Mathematica. This tutorial collection contains basic instructions as well as advanced information for administrators of large sites.

A network license permits a specified number of copies of Mathematica to run concurrently on a network, making Mathematica available to multiple users and machines. Mathematica system administration in a network license environment involves setting up two separate components. First, the Mathematica license manager, MathLM, is installed on the license server to handle the details of license activity. Then, Mathematica is installed as a client of MathLM.

Drawn from the in-product documentation of Mathematica, the 23-title Tutorial Collection gives users targeted instruction on the functions, capabilities, and unified architecture of the Mathematica system. The Collection discontinued printing as of January 2012, but the Mathematica 7 edition of each title remains available for download as a PDF.

NOTE: The System Administrator Guide documents a legacy installation process for Mathematica that has limited applicability to version 8 and later.
