Autodesk Network License Manager for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

Hi Guys,

 
Good day. We just finished networking our 2 Computer Labs all running Macs (iMacs and MacPros) workstations running on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Now the plan is to make our mentor's workstation (MacPro) as a server for the Maya Software. I've already downloaded the software and also got the license file. My concern now is the Autodesk Network License Manager, FlexNet. I was able to download the FlexNet Publisher License Server 11.11.1.2 but it won't continue when I installed it to our mentor's workstation. Can you provide me a link that works as a License Manager that is also compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.8 or is there another Network License Manager that you can recommend for Mac.
 
Thanks.

Hi Guys,

 
Good day. Following the steps in installing the autodesk network license manager for Mac OS X 10.6, below is its message in Terminal:
 

CGI52Mentor:flexnetserver sysad$ ./lmgrd -c ENCSU2014enlicense.lic -ldebug_log_path

CGI52Mentor:flexnetserver sysad$  9:07:25 (lmgrd) -----------------------------------------------

 9:07:25 (lmgrd) -----------------------------------------------

 9:07:25 (lmgrd) 

 9:07:25 (lmgrd) 

 9:07:25 (lmgrd) "CGI52Mentor.local": Not a valid server hostname, exiting.

 9:07:25 (lmgrd) Valid license server system hosts are: "CGI52MENTOR" 

 9:07:25 (lmgrd) Using license file "ENCSU2014enlicense.lic"

 

Is there another way to run our license server?

 

Thanks.

The hostname in the license file must match the actual hostname exactly.

Jimmy is right.  He always is.  :smileyvery-happy:

 

Just change the hostname in the LIC to match the required name listed in the error status.
