Title:

Reasons for a FLEXlm error -16

Description:

The blmgr logfile will have entries similar to: 

15:55:24 (lmgrd) Starting vendor daemons ... 
15:55:24 (basis) FLEXlm version 6.1b 
15:55:24 (basis) Server started on uogasys for:         ODBC_RW         PRO5DS                   
15:55:24 (basis) Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file: 
15:55:24 (basis)         /usr/pro5ds22/blmgr/2ODBC_RWBOD155555.lic 
15:55:24 (basis) SERVER line says ID_STRING=2DF025486, hostid is 000000000000 
15:55:24 (basis) Invalid hostid on SERVER line 
15:55:24 (basis) Disabling 2 licenses from feature ODBC_RW(2DB326623EB6) 
15:55:24 (basis) Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file: 
15:55:24 (basis)         /usr/pro5ds22/blmgr/5PRO5DSPRO555555.lic 
15:55:24 (basis) SERVER line says ID_STRING=2DF025486, hostid is 000000000000 
15:55:24 (basis) Invalid hostid on SERVER line 
15:55:24 (basis) Disabling 5 licenses from feature PRO5DS(AFB0D736F125) 
15:55:24 (lmgrd) Started basis (internet tcp_port 4158 pid 24394) 
15:55:34 (basis) Vendor daemon can't talk to lmgrd (Cannot read data from license server (-16,287)) 
15:55:34 (lmgrd) Vendor daemon died with status 40 
..... 
.... 




Resolution:

The FLEXlm version is not 6.1f or higher and has a problem where it only sees the hostid as zeros when trying to start the vendor daemon. 

A few lines prior to the above there will be a line: 
        15:55:24 (lmgrd) FLEXlm (v6.1) started on yugosys () (3/5/2001) 
         

The only fix is to ensure that the FLEXlm version is 6.1f or higher. This is available for download from the BASIS Ftp site at ftp://ftp.basis.com
