I'd like install matlab 'noninteractively' in a docker container so that we can deploy our stack (which includes matlab calculations) painlessly. I've seen that people do this by wget of the install file - but I can't find a working url of the install file. Has anyone done this with R2015a?

Only install the license server software on the system that is designated as the server in the license file.

There doesn't seem to be any system designated as server in the license file. We have a group license. In my license center I see the following (substituting N for actual license number)
License Number License Label License Option
N Group
N+1 myserver Group Member
N+2 Group Member
N+3 Group Member
N+4 Group Member
N+5 Group Member
When trying to install on 'myserver' using the gui install i dont have the option of installing a license server, since its not listed amongst available products

the answer - group licenses don't allow installation of a license server.

Hey Walter,
There is a local license file, on the machine where MATLAB is installed. The license check is done against that file.

The licenses I used to manage were eventually converted to group licenses. I know I was managing them from a license server.

Download the installation files into some convenient directory that the stack can get access to. wget() from there.

The documentation I find indicates that the license manager should be listed as one of the products available for installation.
You can instead install any compatible FlexLM . As of R2015b, the required version is FLEXnet v11.13; R2015a required at least FLEXnet v11.11.1.2.

The documentation I find similarly indicates that the license manager should be listed as one of the products available for installation, which is why it is rather frustrating that it is not, in fact, available for installation (cf figures below). Perhaps the documentation can be modified to indicate that use of FlexLM is necessary off the bat.
The flexLM manager does not launch succesfully since it is looking for a server in the license file.
