Supported Platforms for Operation of the 11.4.1 License Daemons

Platform/ Operating System

Linux (x86-based)

  • Redhat Enterprise 5 or newer
  • SuSE 10.2 or newer
  • Other Linux distributions based on 2.6.18 or newer Linux kernel should be compatible, but are not tested or supported. 

Note:  Some recent Linux distributions no longer use the eth0 location for the ethernet adapter information.  This version of FlexNet Publisher (FlexLM) requires this adapater information be located in the eth0 location and the Linux system will be unable to be a license server unless this requirement is met.  A web search for "etho" with "Flexlm" will return lots of hits describing how to make this conversion.  Select the article you find most clear and pertinent to your Linux distribution.  Below is one such link as an example.  This example may work for you, but you might find other articles that are better for your needs.  This change should be done by an experienced Linux system administrator since you could easily lock yourself out of any remote connection to your Linux system if you make mistakes doing this.

Windows

  • Windows XP SP2 or newer
  • Windows Vista, 7, or 8
  • Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012

Note: Some recent versions of Windows are no longer compatible with the RDLicenseTool.exe (Manage Reaction Design License) or with the RequestLicense.exe (Request a New Reaction Design License) due to these tools being built with an older version of Visual Basic.  In these cases, use the lmtools.exe utility also provided and documented in the FLEXnet User Guide manual to obtain lmhostid, install the licensing service, etc.

 

Obtaining lmhostid Value

The lmhostid value is the unique value that is used to connect a license file to a specific license server machine.  The license installers below contain utilities that allow you to obtain that value.  In general, we use the MAC address for both Windows or Linux systems in most cases.  But, with machines that have multiple MAC addresses (wired, wireless, docking station on Windows) and multiple network adapters on Linux (eth0, eth1, ...) this can be more complicated that you might expect.  On Windows, you can download "Installer for License Request for PC Systems" (see below list of downloads) if you only need to obtain the lmhostid.  Any of our product installs also include the license tools, but you need to have a license file to obtain access to those product installers.  On Linux, select the "Installer for RD Licensing Tools ..." for either 32-bit or 64-bit Linux as appropriate.

Supported License Server Utilities  (FlexLM 11.4)

Reaction Design supports FlexLM licensing v 11.4.1 on x86 and x86_64 systems running Windows or Linux.  Newer versions of the lmgrd daemon or lmadmin utility are also compatible, but not offered for download here.   You can select an installer that includes supplemental license tools that we provide or you can choose to download the specific daemons (lmgrd, reaction) and FlexLM tools (lmutil, lmtools on Windows) individually.  These license tools are also included in our product installers; so the primary reason for downloading these tools separately is to allow you to add our licensing to an existing, dedicated licensing server where you do not want to perform an install of any of our products.
