I have installed ANSYS 13 on suse, but I cannot load license file. When i try to load the license I get "invalid license file: the hostid of this machine does not match the hostid in the license file". The license is created by AP_13Calc.exe and it has correct structure [host name and mac adress are ok]. Does anybody know how to fix it?

Thank you,
skrzat

Can you see the FLEXID when you click "Display the License Server Machine Hostid" in the "anslic_admin" utiliy?. If not (probably) you must install the "lsb" package. As referenced in the Installation and Licensing Documentation Pag. 61.

It works for me.

"TheLinux Standard Base (LSB) is a joint project by several Linux distributions under the organizational structure of the Linux Foundation to standardize the software system structure, including the filesystem hierarchy, used with Linuxoperating system. The LSB is based on the POSIXspecification, the Single UNIX Specification, and several other open standards, but extends them in certain areas."
For CentOS I think that you need install redhat-lsb:

yum install redhat-lsb

CentOs 6.3 x86_64 is used. With ansys12.1 and 14, both tell "Invalid license file:The hostid of this machine does not match the hostid in the license file". With ansys12.1, "display hostid" is blank. With ansys14, "display hostid" is 000000000000.

How to solve it?

I think you should edit the file /etc/hosts and add "127.0.0.1 yourhostname" in a new line! Good Luck!
