    Problems setting up license in linux with flexera publisher

    jmcamas

      Hello all

       

      I'm new in this community, and after some hours reading "how tos", "readme" and other guides, I think I'm stuck with this.

       

      What I have:

      - Linux server with Ubuntu server 12.04.1.

      - FlexNet Publisher 11.10 License Server

      - Xilinx license installed on it. Running.

      - ALDEC license installed with a dongle. Running.

      - Modelsim license installed with daemon, but not running with another dongle.

       

      These are my license configuration lines (Only config lines)

       

      SERVER 172.27.198.43 FLEXID=9-1e6860c2

      DAEMON mgcld /opt/licenses/mgcld/bin/mgcld

       

      This is the output of check the dongles.

       

      lmutil lmhostid -flexid

      lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2011 Flexera Software, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

      The FLEXnet host ID of this machine is ""FLEXID=9-1e6860c2 FLEXID=9-3e67d8e7""

      Only use ONE from the list of hostids.

       

      And this are the logs of flexera and mgcld respectively

      I tried to change in Server line the name of host by ip but with the same effect.

       

      Thanks in advance for your help.

       

      Kind Regards.
