When running multiple license installations (from different vendors) on the same server, the FlexLM 'lmutil lmdown' command line can be used to stop the license server for a particular vendor daemon.
The command line to stop the Siemens PLM license server is given below:
lmutil lmdown -c <license_file> -vendor ugslmd
However, if licenses have been borrowed from this server the following error will be encountered and the license server will not be shutdown:
Can't find lmgrd for vendor "ugslmd"
Solution Using the following 'lmdown' command syntax, without the '-vendor' option, gives a more informative message:
lmutil lmdown -c <license_file>
Shutdown failed : Cannot lmdown the server when licenses are borrowed.
If you're on the same host as the server, you need to use -force argument to lmdown.
Shutdown can't be done from any other host.
In order to shutdown the SPLM license server with borrowed licenses the following command syntax is required:
lmutil lmdown -c <license_file> -vendor ugslmd -force
Note: The borrowed licenses will remain borrowed when the license server is restarted.
Notes and References Refer to the FlexNet Publisher License Administration Guide for full details of the lmutil / lmdown command syntax.
