So I went into my license server this week to check what was in use and when I go to the Server Status tab and click Perform Status Enquiry I get the following.  It used to work just fine.  Hose name and MAC address have not changed.  No luck searching the web.  Ideas?  Licenses are working.


Flexible License Manager status on Wed 4/17/2013 09:58

[Detecting lmgrd processes...]
Error getting status: No SERVER lines in license file.
License path: C:\Program Files\Macrovision\samreport\v3.6\samreportlicents.lic;
FLEXnet Licensing error:-13,66
For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,
available at "".



License starts out with these lines


SERVER "server host name" "MAC address"
VENDOR adskflex port=2080

It looks like it is trying to read your SAMReport license file. You should not have anything configured in the LMTOOLS for this application becuase it is licensed by the product itself. I suspect your NLM is working just fine.

I found it, on the Service/License File tab I checked the "LMTOOLS ignores license flies path environment variables"  When I loaded the SAMReport on the server I bet it put in an environment variable.  It is working now.
