NX Running 'lmdown' results in error: "Can't find lmgrd for vendor 'ugslmd'"

NX System Administration



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"


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.
