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.
