hello everybody
I've installed Ansys 13 on a AMD 64 bit machine (OS: Xubuntu 11.10) and I got a little problem with license management.
After starting the system, the license manager is not running, thus I can't use IcemCFD.
So I launch ANSLIC_ADMIN and click on "Start the ANSYS Inc. License Manager", but, even after waiting some minutes, the box in the bottom-left corner displays "FLEXlm: not running".
The log file shows that the problem is the 1055 port already in use, in fact now there are two lmgrd processes running, even if before clicking on "Start the ANSYS Inc. License Manager" there wasn't any!
If I kill the process using the 1055 port, then everything works and I can use ANSYS ICEM.
May anybody tell me why two lmgrd processes start?
(the license is on my computer!)

thank you

Step-by-step guide:

1. Run Server ANSLIC_ADMIN utility (as administrator)

2. Click Stop the ANSYS, Inc. License Manager

3. Open command prompt and enter netstat-a. Scroll down and you should find port 1055 in use.

4. From the ADMIN Utility, click Specify the License Server Machine

5. Click Edit Selected Server Machine

6. Change ANSYS FLEXlm port number to any port number other than 1055 (ex. 1056) and click OK

7. Go to the folder \Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing and open license.dat using notepad. Change the port no. to the one you set above and save.

8. From the Server ANSLIC_ADMIN utility, click Install the License File

9. Browse for the edited license.dat file

10. Click Start the ANSYS, Inc. License Manager

Hi,
If port 1055 or whatever was picked for flexlm isnt on the list, what does that mean?
Thanks in advance for any help,

Hi,

FlexLm issues can make crazy minds. I tried to change port numbers or many things found from the internet. However, still not succeeded.

Interesting issue here is FlexLm firstly running then chaning to not running a few seconds later. Besides, in task manager, 9 lmgrd is working simultaneously.

Looking forward to your helps

I have the same problem with FLEXlm not running with ANSYS13 installed on ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit.
I tried the solution proposed by gaurav_prabhudesai, but it did not work for me. Did someone find another solution or have some ideas?

Hi all,
I had this problem in the past with a kubuntu distro (remember that ubuntu/kubuntu distros are not officially supported by ansys); in this thread there is a partial solution, but you have to manually kill one lmgrd process..

Thank you for your reply. I tried your solution but, apparently, does not work for me. When I run ps -A before clicking on "start the ansys inc license manager" I have no lmgrd process running, like you. But when I click on "start the ansys inc license manager" and the run ps -A I have only one lmgrd process, not two.

EDIT: This is the output of ps -A after having clicked on "start the ansys inc license manager":

I found my own solution! Finally!

Here is what I have done:

1. Modify the license.txt, changing the host name with its ip address (127.0.1.1 in my case). You can find it in your /etc/hosts.

2. Install the license.

3. Start the license manager.

4. Run ps -A > ~/Desktop/ps.txt. In the ps.txt file you will find two lmgrd processes, kill the first one. In my case killing the second one did not work (I do not know why!).

5. That's it!

Normally the license file top line has machine address and port number on it. If you are connected to interenet sometimes the IP changes due to DHCP. and this also changes the MAC address (machine address). that is pretty strange though! Anyways, if Flexlm is not running, open command prompt and type ipconfig /all and it will display the hardware address. Match it with the one in license file. If it is not there then regenerate the license file, restart your machine and hopefully Flexlm will start running.

PS: No need to experiment with port number.

Hopefully, you must have restarted a lot during this time and did not get Flexlm running. So if it is still not working try to see if some other application is uisng the flexlm or not. If yes, then try to stop its service during start up. Make sure that you get ANSYS to read correct license file. Type ipconfig /all in command prompt to see physical address. This must match with your Mac address in license file, something like ae405c .... . See in the ANSLIC_Admin... that if license machine is correctly specified by the name of Pc and this name should also be the same in license file as well.
