Determining the Host ID

To determine the host ID, use the lmutil lmhostid command within the FlexServer directory. The output should be an eight-character alphanumeric string (or a 12-character alphanumeric string on Linux). For example:

% ./lmutil lmhostid

lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2009

The FlexNet host ID of this machine is "807abc12"

In this example, the host ID is 807abc12.

Note: When you are running ./lmutil lmhostid, you may see the following error message:

>-bash: ./lmutil: No such file or directory

This error appears when FlexNet is missing necessary libraries to run on Linux. To clear the error, install lsb-core by typing the command:

sudo apt-get install lsb-core
