How to generate Host ID for Floating License

Answer:

For us to build a license file for you, we need the Host ID of the license server you plan to use. Below are instructions for how to generate the Host ID.

  • Download and unzip the file you receive from the automated email we sent you. There are 2 tools to choose from:

    • lmutil (Command Line)

    • lmtools (GUI)

  • Run lmutil or lmtools on the server you intend to use as described below, which will give you the Host ID to provide us so we can create your license file.

  • If you use lmtools:

    • Start up lmtools

    • Click System Settings tab, locate Hostid box

    • Locate Ethernet box. The 12 character address is the Host ID

    • Send the Host ID to your Account Manager or Support to generate the license file.
