When trying to query FlexNet licenses using
lmutil or similar from systems with a different DNS suffix, make sure that the license file server name contains the FDQN for the SERVER line. If not you can find that lmutils complains that the
lmgrd process is not running, even though you can run the actual program with the appropriate license.
For example, with a line in the licence file like
SERVER servername 4eca3b4b8326 1055
lmutil lmstat -a -c firstname.lastname@example.org
results in a
HOST_NOT_FOUND error. Running the
Client ANSLIC_ADMIN Utility gives the same error. However, ANSYS fires up as normal.
To fix this put the FDQN in the license file (refreshing the licence server afterwards!)
SERVER servername.physics.gla.ac.uk 4eca3b4b8326 1055
lmutil queries should then work as normal.
