Ysbrand -

Which "log" file are you trying to connect the SAMlite report to? If it's the debug.log
that you specify using the lmtools configuration utility, that's the wrong one.

In the options file there is a possible entry of
REPORTLOG [+]report_log_path
(the + is optional and means to append rather than overwrite)
This is the vendor daemon log that will be used with the SAMlite report.

Just to add to Jason's comment, the REPORTLOG statement needs to be written
into a file named adskflex.opt placed in the same directory as your license
file. You will also have to authorise your SAMreport-lite for the host id of
the server on which you generated the report log. Further information on
this can be found in the Network Administrator's Guide.

Thanks for answering my question but i don't understand which settings i
must change.
I have just installed for the first time an NLS-server for 8 licences for
ACAD2002.
I received the license file from autodesk and the FLEXlm server V7.1f is
running.
(by configuring a service and i set the log pad, licence pad)
This working O.K.
Then i asked for the license file for the SAMreport program and i installed
it.
When i start my LMtools, the service / license file -tab and configuration
using license file-toggle button selected displays the
c:/gsi/samreport/machineid/license/licen.dat as license file

I've searched through the help files from FLEXlm and i find the same story
as you send me as below.
Because this is the first time i set up NLS, i don't know everything in
detail.
But could you help me setting up the SAMreport program and tell me excectly
what to add, remove or change in the correct files.

Thanks a lot

Ysbrand Haagsma

PS I''ve scanned the discussion group messages and i didn't find the string
SAMREPOrt. Am i the only one who doesn't understand the installation of the
SAM program ?

PS I think the discussion groups work very good !!

Ysbrand -

If you've already got you license for the SAMreport lite you're doing pretty well. I
can't get the globetrotter web page to work??

Anyway -

Create a file called adskflex.opt in the same location as the autodesk license file that
you received (not the samlite license file, the autodesk one). Open this file with your
favorite text editor (notepad always works for me) and put one line in it. Something like
REPORTLOG +C:\Report.log
should work. This tells the flexlm service to create a report log called report.log at
the root of your C drive. Now stop and start the FlexLM service and check the debug.log.
Make sure that it says something like

Using Options File: "C:\Program Files\Autodesk License Manager\License\adskflex.opt"
and
Report Log Started (C:\Report.log).

Now run the samreport but point to c:\report.log

Now were getting somewhere. You should rewrite both manuals !!


The license file of SAMreport lite i got from the hyperlink in
the (poor)
manual.
After making a option file the debug-log file wrote lines you
wrote: using
log file and creating a report.log.
(Yes, I am making some progress)

Now i start the SAM program and it says i can't find the license
?!

What is going wrong ??

Hi there,

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 HOST_GROUP doesn't work. I already made a HOST_GROUP before I use INCLUDE in the opt file.

Thanks in advance

Jason,

Also had problems getting to the autodesk.html file on www.globes.com, found a different link though which worked for me. Note that you may have issues getting to this link through a firewall as the server is running the web service on port 88 and not port 80 as is standard.
