RE: Daemon Down


RE: Daemon Down

I have run into the same issue. The only way I have found to get the
license server back to normal is to completely restart the main server that
is running the flexlm server. I am not sure if this is due to the new
version of flexlm or the simplified licenses but I have been able to
reproduce it multiple times. It usually occurs when you try to restart just
the flexlm server. Hopefully PTC is working on the issue. I do have a call
number open: 4213057 so feel free to reference it when speaking to PTC.

Daemon Down

"The desired vendor daemon is down."

That's what Flexlm reports after trying to use a simplified license file
with Wildfire 2.0 codes. Been on the phone w/PTC tech supt for hours now
and they're out of ideas. we've tried:

- new license file cleaned up personally by License Mgt
- uninstalling/reinstalling Flexlm 8.4 from WF2
- uninstalling/reinstalling Flexlm 7.2 from WF1
- uninstalling/reinstalling Flexlm ?.? from ProE 2001

When I run ptcstatus I get the word "counted" as a single column under
the "In Use" and "Free" listings - no numbers.

They were going to suggest I upgrade my server from NT4.0 to W2K. it
shouldn't be that blunt of a solution - anybody out there run across

Thanks in advance - martinis for the house after this is over.
