All machines, including the server box are Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit.
I downloaded the lmadmin from Flex yesterday, so I believe it is current.
As for the boxed lmgrd that came with Inventor; I think it was 11.5 - at any rate I checked the version when I started on this sojourn to make sure lmadmin was compatible with the adskflex.exe I have, and it fell within the compatible parameters per this article. I did not however log all version numbers of everything I tried - I would have to reinstall that softare to verify 100%.
The version of adskflex.exe I am using came from the Autodesk Inventor 2012 64-Bit installer.
I have identified two problems:
if your server is windows 7
did you use the IPv6 version of flex lm?
uh... I used what came with the installer; if thats not the same then I guess I did not. Thank you for that link, I will give it a go again tomorrow morning and update the conversation with the results - end of day for me here now.
If you had another 3rd party app using LMGRD that was working and you added the Autodesk flavor to the mix, that's probably why you were having issues. Since your other LMGRD works, what you want instead is to combine the license managers into one. Just use the other one. Copy in your adskflex.exe vendor daemon and configure the service to use the other lmgrd.exe (upgrade it if necessary.) All of my instructions are in my Combining License Files KB below in my signature.
After resolving my IPv6 issue; lmadmin worked like a charm - no muss, no fuss - straight forward and simple - props for this article; excellent alternative to LMTOOLS/LMGRD.
Sorry about the basic question in this advanced post!
What is the standard network license manager/ software that comes with Autodesk software and is supported by Autodesk? Is FlexNet Publisher a 3rd party license management software that is not supported by Autodesk?
Please let me know.
The flexnet software that is included with the Autodesk media is supported by Autodesk. The Flexera is the developers of the stardard FlexLM license manager and FLEXnet Publisher, but Autodesk only support the FlexLM license manager "LMTOOLS".
This thread is about an alternative license GUI from Flexera that still uses the same lmgrd master daemon but does not use LMTOOLS. Instead it is web-based. It works exactly the same as the one that comes with the Autodesk software because it is the same software. It is just a different presentation.
Hope that helps.
