I am in the process of moving my license server to a new box. I installed LMTOOLS on my new server and aquired a new license file from Autodesk with the correct Host name and MAC address. The server is 2008 R2 64 bit. and IPv6 has been disabled. Whenever I start the service I get the following error.
--------Status-------- Flexible License Manager status on Wed 7/20/2011 10:46 [Detecting lmgrd processes...] License server status: 27000@10sv04 License file(s) on 10sv04: C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager\license.lic: 10sv04: license server UP (MASTER) v11.9 Vendor daemon status (on 10sv04): adskflex: The desired vendor daemon is down. Check the lmgrd log file, or try lmreread. Vendor:Host: 10sv04 License path: 27000@10sv04; FLEXnet Licensing error:-97,121 For further information, refer to the FLEXnet Licensing documentation,available at "www.flexerasoftware.com".
I then check the log file and get the following (software information removed)
10:29:01 (lmgrd) Rereading license file...

This repeats a few times and then dies.
All exe files are version 11.9.
I have been on the forums for a while and can't seem to get an answer to work. can anyone help me?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have had a few issues on 2008 R2.
First, I recommend downloading 11.9.1 from Flexera. Then make sure that when you ping the local machine, it returns a valid IPv4 address and not the IPv6 or a localhost address of ::1. Even with IPv6 off, I have found that the return local is still ::1. You might have to make a hosts file adjustment to make localhost point to 127.0.0.1 as well as your hostname. Make sure UAC is also disabled and that ports 27000~27009 and 2080 are open in the Firewall as well as all four NLM .exe files.
Download the 11.9.1 files here:
Just get the Windows 64 bit for lmgrd.exe, lmutil.exe, and lmtools.exe.
Post any additional issues you have here.
For anyone else who is haning this issue:
I had disabled IPv6 in the adapter settings but was still getting the issues described. If you need help chainging your host file here is a great link:
Excellent. That's one of my favorite guides in the forum. Glad to help!
We recently transferred our license to a new server. After initially getting successful at seeing the new license server, I am now getting Error 1.5.-4 with a number of users. The message we get: A valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager....
This occurred from one day to the next. No changes were made either on the server or workstation. The server is running Windows Server 2003, the workstation are in XP and Windows 7.
