Does someone have any expirience with the adskflex.opt file?
For so far using INCLUDEALL (or EXLUDEALL) on a HOST (or hostlist) works fine to me. But using INCLUDE (or EXCLUDE)
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've already solved the problem.
I've typed the feature code of 41100ACD_2002_0F wrong (I've missed the D character).
It's working fine now.
I think I need a typing course ;-)
Sorry for the delay on the reply. I've not tried this in a while and had to have some
time to set it up again.
I've compiled a couple of your posts in this one
I'm getting the exclude to work fine (I haven't tried the include, but see my q below). I
noticed that you are using the HOST_GROUP parameter, but then you say you want to control
licenses by username. HOST_GROUP is the wrong param for that. If you want to use user
names use the GROUP (I think that GROUP is interchangable with USER_GROUP) param rather
than HOST_GROUP. HOST_GROUP is for machine names and GROUP is for user names (as I
Below is the options file that I've created in a "generic" mode and then the specific
GROUP group_name groupmembers
EXCLUDE feature_name type group_name
So for me that looked like
GROUP dummies jam
EXCLUDE 41500BLDGEL_1_0F GROUP dummies
Is flexlm actually reading your license file, or is it ignoring it completely. You have a
log file (you get to specify the location in the lmtools.exe) that you can check (just
open it with notepad) and it will tell you what it's doing with stuff in the options file.
For example my log file indicates:
EXCLUDE USER_GROUP dummies FROM 41500BLDGEL_1_0F
Does yours have any such entries, or any errors?
This isn't part of the answer, but I'm curious. Why do you need to use and INCLUDE??? By
default everyone is allowed to use everything (as far as I can tell). Have you Excluded
everyone and now you need to include them back (If so, that's a problem because exclude
overrides include). Include is only required for user based or host based features,
which, none of the license files that I've seen Autodesk issue have been host or user

made a hostgroup via HOST_GROUP before I use INCLUDE in the opt file.

Glad you got it working, but I'd still like to know. Why do you need and INCLUDE?

Thanks for your reply.
I have everything working now.
Why I want to use INCLUDE?
I have within our office several users from several departments. They purchase on base of investment their own licenses which I have to manage. So using INCLUDE and HOST_GROUP I can split the departments by a hostnamegroup.
HOST_GROUP civil pc0001 pc0002
HOST_GROUP buildings pc0005 pc006
INCLUDE 41100ACD_2002_0F HOST_GROUP civil buildings
By the way, I also use the RESERVE parameter.
So actually, I want to to use the INCLUDE parameter for reserving licenses for those who are entitled for using the licenses. (Am I this saying right?)
Further, I read in the Flexlm End user manual, when using USER, HOST (and DISPLAY??) in a PC environment, this will be seen by the flexlm as a hostname of a PC.
I honestly have to say that I did not test this, because we haven't got a NT/2000 network but a Netware network with CAD clients which uses NT/2000 as a client and are all Administrator's on their own machine.
just a comment to following i found in this discussion
>The following rules in the opt file;

Above include statement could not work, as it is missing the HostGroup Name. The syntax should be following
> HOST_GROUP mygroupname Host1 host2 host3
> INLCUDE 41100ACD_2002_0F HOST_GROUP myhostgroupname
this will work
