Choosing the Flexnet server manager
There are three types of FlexNet server managers:
- lmadmin – a web-based license server manager with GUI (recommended).
- lmgrd – a license server manager with a command-line interface.
- lmtools – the old Windows-based server manager (replaced by lmadmin).
We recommend using lmadmin.
- lmadmin installer comes in 32-bit architecture (regardless of the version) only.
- 11.12.1 version license server utilities (except the lmadmin installer) come in 32/64-bit architectures.
- 11.14 version license tools are not available in 64-bit binaries. Only 32-bit tools are available (additional 32-bit libraries need to be installed in the 64-bit multi-arch system to execute them).
- You have downloaded the installation files of:
- the FlexNet license server manager.
- the vendor daemon - Cameo.
The license server manager (e.g., lmadmin) should be of the same or later version as a vendor daemon - Cameo you use.
For Windows users
To use lmadmin on Windows platforms, the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package must be installed. You have an option to install this package during the FlexNet Publisher License Server Installer process.
|We recommend using 32-bit lmadmin or 32-bit lmgrd with a 32-bit Cameo daemon vendor file.
|We recommend using 32-bit lmadmin. Additional 32-bit libraries need to be installed in the 64-bit multi-arch system to execute them.
For Linux users
This can be achieved either by:
1. Adding the user to the 'sudo' group
2. Editing the file /etc/sudoers using visudo.
Method 1 (Ubuntu based)
Method 2 (Ubuntu based)
Method 1 (Redhat/Fedora/CentOS)
Installing 32-bit lmadmin on a multi-arch machine will require 32-bit libraries.
For recent Ubuntu
For older Ubuntu use
Running 64-bit lmgrd on 64-bit systems requires 64-bit Linux Standard Base (LSB) library.
Both of them require 32-bit libraries. Install it using:
For recent Ubuntu
For older Ubuntu
Check if LSB was installed successfully using:
In order to query which lsb library is required for a particular Centos version, the following command can be executed:
It is the best practice to run license servers on a server-based OS.
