          Roger,

           

          Are you asking is there a way to have a response to what system is using a specific license when it is denied?

           

          Regards,

          Max

            Yes we have 1 NPI license and 8 machines that can access the license, so it would be good to see who has it. If that possible.

              Roger,

               

              I looked briefly into LMTOOLS to see if the FlexLM application could provide you this information.   The only place I see a recorded event is in the licensing log file.  I could not come up with something simplier to just list the used licenses by hostname.  But I there still may be away to do it.

               

              If you want the application to provide this ability, then what you are asking for is an enhancement.  Mentor has an IDEA site specifically in place for this type of activity.

               

              The location for Valor NPI is https://mentorideas.brightidea.com/valor.

               

              Between releases this site is reviewed for customer based input.  On the site other users also vote on your IDEA providing us feedback on how the user community views the need.  We can also use it for a discussion board on the topic.  I have found in very useful when discussing needs with customer.  You can also see what IDEAs are planned on review the status of what you might have suggested.

               

              This community site is intented to provide quick guidance on the application in a way that others may also respond.  You might still get a good suggestion on how to acquire this information using an existing means.

               

              However if you are asking for an enhancement to applicaiton, can I request of you to go to the IDEAs site through the link above and enter this suggestion into there.

               

              Thanks,

              Max Clark

                Thanks I will go and add a request on the IDEA site. I asked I case I had missed something in the set up that allowed for this.
