Help with returning borrowed licenses from different Vendor daemons

HI Guys,

 

We currently run Creo 3 m090. 

 

We are also in the process of testing out Creo 7

 

can someone explain how to return borrowed license files from each Creo 3 and Creo 7?

 

When I try and return them, I get an error saying that they are borrowed from multiple VD's, and i need to specify which.

 

How do i do this?

 

Here is what my return script looks like.

@echo on
😧
cd d:\PTCAPPS\"Creo 7.0.1.0"\Common Files\x86e_win64\obj\
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 PROE_EngineerI
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 125
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 192
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 59
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 6
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 67
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 135
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 32
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 339
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 341
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 10124
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 157
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 161
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 211
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 212
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 278
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 326
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 283
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 275
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 PROBUNDLE_10114
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 PROBUNDLE_10124
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 MECBASICENG_License
lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 MECBASICUI_License

 

After I run this, I still show 2 PROE_EngineerI not returned. 

The one that sets to expire on April 10th is from Creo7

The one set to expire Oct 29th is Creo3

Hi,

change lmutil lmborrow -return commands according to following example

 

lmutil lmborrow -return -c 7788@azuse2lic10 -vendor ptc_d PROE_EngineerI

Thanks for the reply. 

 

I tried that, and it still does not work.  

 

If i run ptcstatus it doesnt show me as having any license, but lmutil lmborrow -status still shows the 2 PROE_EngineerI files.

Maybe this isnt a big deal. ??

Re: Help with returning borrowed licenses from different Vendor daemons

Hi,

my suggestion:

  • wait until 30-oct-2020
  • I hope license borrowed until 29-Oct-2020 23:59 disappears from lmutil lmborrow -status output
  • repeat your request to return the second license

 

Note 1:

I am not sure if it is possible to borrow license for launching Creo 3.0 and 7.0 simultaneously under single user. If I were you I would login as user1 + borrow Creo 3.0 license -AND- login as user2 + borrow Creo 7.0 license.

 

Note 2:

In case that the problem remain, please run following command from Command prompt window and upload ptcstatus.txt file.

cd <Creo Parametric/bin subdirectory>

ptcstatus -nopause > ptcstatus.txt
