a -96 error messages means: License server machine is down or not responding.
you may want to look at the license server side to see if its actually running
Yep, Darren is right. I have been seeing this more lately on Server 2008 R2 where the adskflex.exe starts then stops but the lmgrd.exe service keeps running. In most cases it turns out to be firewall and IPv6 related.
I'm sorry, but I cannot see in this post what the solution is. For those of us unfamiliar with IPV4 vs IPV6 issues, could someone please elaborate?
I am getting this same type of error. Mine is Error [-96.7.2] and I can't get a license.
My license server is up and running, providing licenses to all who ask except this one machine. LM TOOLS reports having a license available for the software requesting it.
Machines that can pull licenses: Win7 64 brand new Dell laptop, and also older Vista 32bit HP laptops. No problem.
Machine not able to get license: brand new Macbook Pro. AutoCAD for Mac installed trying to pull a license for it. This machine is positively connected to the license server.
License server: XP Pro 2002, SP3
Any suggestions? And thanks for your time and consideration.
Okay, I figured it out with a little help from Autodesk Tech support. So in the interest of anyone who can find this in a search string, here's the fix, in enumerated steps, very clear and specific, hopefully of actual use to someone in the future.
2. We could not connect to the server via Hostname so we used the IP address instead.
