License Manager Status using Lmutil

We are using latest version of the flexlm utils 11.6. The license manager is working fine.

When  lmutil command from 11.6 version of flexlm utilities  not able to get the status of the license manager.

The License manager os Linux RHEL 4.8 and client from which we are trying to check the status is Linux RHEL 5.5.

when we run the lmutil of 11.6 from solaris client we are able see status of licens manager.

 

let me know if any body has faced such issues.

Re: License Manager Status using Lmutil

Hi Nitin,

 

Most probably it could be due to slow license server response i.e. lmstat timesout before it get response from slow license server. Running strace on the lmstat, may slow it down enough so that the server can respond. Increasing the lmstat timout, however, by using the -t seconds parameter, does not effect the results.

 

A work-around may be to run 'strace' on the lmstat command

 

strace -f -o /dev/null lmstat -c 1717@myserver

 

 

(OR)

 

download v11.9.1.0 version of lmutil from below links

Re: License Manager Status using Lmutil

I have 3 suggestions.

1) Make sure you have the correct lmutil executable for your O/S.

2) I had a user run into a similar issue and turns out there was an older version located in one of the stanard path directories that was overriding the new one that was loaded.

3) Add -t 60 at the end to give the license manager up to a minute to respond. This helps on slow networks.

 

Hope this helps!

Rachel
