I am trying to get mgls_v9-9_3-1-0.ixl working for my recently generated license set.

lmgrd starts up, but mgcld does not.


I have checked the log file:


16:22:54 (mgcld)     ==>INCREMENT znview mgcld 2014.060 30-jun-2014 15 4E829B33109DF97C1138 \

    VENDOR_STRING=9F8D1C26 SN=40311802 SIGN2="1749 8639 2C62 DA2E \

    5ADA A3DB F46B 0B9C 0D3E F46F 8CA6 F335 861E E2AF D6FA 1EF0 \

16:22:54 (mgcld) License server system started on

16:22:54 (mgcld) No features to serve, exiting

16:22:54 (mgcld) EXITING DUE TO SIGNAL 36 Exit reason 4

16:22:54 (lmgrd) mgcld exited with status 36 (No features to serve)

16:22:54 (lmgrd) mgcld daemon found no features.  Please correct

16:22:54 (lmgrd) license file and re-start daemons.

16:22:54 (lmgrd)

16:22:54 (lmgrd) This may be due to the fact that you are using

16:22:54 (lmgrd) a different license file from the one you expect.

16:22:54 (lmgrd) Check to make sure that:

16:22:54 (lmgrd) /opt/tools/mentor_lic/etc/cust/mgc/mgc.licenses

16:22:54 (lmgrd) is the license file you want to use.

16:22:54 (lmgrd)


I have checked for necessary libraries to be installed (with i686 support):

[root@secw33 /]#  find . -name "ld-lsb*" -print




[root@secw33 /]#


I habe tested lmutil reading the hostid as used for lmgrd

[65]mentorgr@secw33> lmutil lmhostid

lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2013 Flexera Software LLC. All Rights Reserved.

The FlexNet host ID of this machine is ""e89a8f9232ba e89a8f9232bb""

Only use ONE from the list of hostids.


For security I am running lmgrd as non-root process. This works well for two other

application I am running on the same system.


Does anyone has an idea where to probe further ? Or does anyone has experience how to overcome

this problem ?


Thanks in advance
