How to resolve FLEXlm Error -5 with 2 products using a License Manager
After installing the BASIS License Manager and PRO/5 on a UNIX system a FLEXlm Error = -5, 357 (No such feature exists) persists even though the logfile indicates the BLM started for the stated feature.
License Path: /u/otherapplication/license/license.dat
FlexLM Error: -5, 357
Other applications that use FLEXlm may be setting an environmental variable called LM_LICENSE_PATH that points to /u/otherapplication/license/license.dat.
Under UNIX environmental variables, take precedence over pointer files so this variable will need to be modified to include the path to the BASIS.lic file along with the pointer to the license.dat file, separated by a colon.
For example, a .profile might include the line
setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE /u/otherapplication/license/license.dat
Modify this line to include /u/basis/pro5/BASIS.lic and a colon (:). The new line would be:
setenv LM_LICENSE_FILE /u/basis/pro5/BASIS.lic : /u/otherapplication/license/license.dat
