Yea, this is what im getting:
Vendor daemon status (on SERVER):
adskflex: Cannot connect to license server system.
The license server manager (lmgrd) has not been started yet,
the wrong port@host or license file is being used, or the
port or hostname in the license file has been changed.
Server name XXXX:
License path: XXX;
FLEXnet Licensing error:-15,10. System Error: 10049 "WinSock: Invalid address"
For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,
available at "www.flexerasoftware.com".
But if it doesn’t work, I guess it doesn’t work.. Where can I find 11.7? The version we have is 11.9.x.x adskflex which I believe you said in another post causes problems.
Actually, I found another post of yours containing the 64-bit 11.7 file.
But we are using 2013 AutoCAD. Will this cause a problem since we are supposed to be using 11.10?
I work in one of the engineering frim that currently we have 17 offices accross the US. Right now, each office has a standalone server that hosted our network autocad licenses but we are planning to setup a single centralize Autocad license manager that will host the license- In order to simplify the manegment and also to update the license. Are there ways to have a single server top host the autocad license accross the 17 offices and also have the flexibility to be able to have a disaster recovery if in case the internet connection of the host office is not avilable and users will be able to continue working? I hosted several engineering licenses in our main office and I know that I have to put some type of environmental variables and setting in order for the users to be able to maintain the connection. Are there any settings as well that I have to do in the autocad application users computer in order for it to be able to maintain the connection and it won't timeout? What should I do?
Yes this can be done. We host a single NLM for the WAN consisting of over 20 offices nationwide. You can set ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE and FLEXLM_TIMEOUT variables to facilitate the redirection and connectivity latency to the new server. Disaster recovery is easier on a single license server because you do not have to recreate multiple licenses for distributed or redundant servers. If you do need to do this, you can be back up and running within minutes on another NLM server with environment variables pointing to the new location. I think you'll find it a lot easier to manage and maintain your licenses on a single license server.
Thank you for the prompt reply. In this case that we already established our deployment package in each office and already installed in computer in that office. If in case we will generate one license for our single license server, what will happen to the comuters that have autocad that already have autodesk installed in their machine with the installation package that was made with thge local license server that currently being used? Do I have to recreate the package and point the installation to the new single autocad license server? I know that you mentioned the variables, do I just need to put that in each autocad computers and then turn off the local license server then switch to the new license server? What are the other settings that I should do in our individual computers in order to look or be switch to the single license server?
Thank you and I hope that I explain it properly.
Yep, it's really as simple as setting the environment variable. With this set on each workstation, it will override any setting locally or created by the deployment and look to the new license manager location. You can go back and modify the deployment if you wish, but so long as you have the environment variable in place, you will be just fine.
Here's more info on it:
FWIW - we set the environment variable in the network logon script. If we have to change a group of people, we change the script and have them reboot. Totally independent of anything CAD related.
