Question QI-004:

Why am I not able to run ADINA using the floating license?

Answer:

Note that the ADINA floating license is not supported on Compaq Tru64 Unix.

Some common problems:

  • ADINA license server is not started.

    On Windows XP/Vista/7, start the ADINA floating license server through

    Start > Programs > ADINA System N.n > Floating License > License Server

    If you cannot find the above shortcut, you can start the license server by directly running the program loadls.exe from the %ADINAHOME%\Sentinel directory. %ADINAHOME% is the directory where you installed the ADINA System.

    On Unix/Linux, start the ADINA floating license server by running the command lserv in the $ADINAHOME/slm directory. $ADINAHOME is the directory where you installed the ADINA System.

    cd $ADINAHOME/slm
    ./lserv

  • No license password file or wrong name for license password file.

    The floating license password file must be named "lservrc" with no extension. It must be put in the directory %ADINAHOME%\Sentinel (Windows), or $ADINAHOME/slm (Unix/Linux).

License Monitoring Utilities:

lsmon : (all platforms)
Retrieves information about all features currently licensed by the license server and whether any features are used by the clients.

lsmon <license server>

WlmAdmin : (Windows only)
Monitors license features available on the license server and which clients are using the features. This program runs with a graphical user interface.

%ADINAHOME%\Sentinel\WlmAdmin.exe
