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
