For Sun SPARC Solaris 10

./lmgrd -c <path>orglab.lic -l [+]<path>orglabDebug.log

where orglab.lic is the license file you obtained from the OriginLab website.


For Fedora 8

./lmgrd -c <path>orglab.lic -l [+]<path>orglabDebug.log

where orglab.lic is the license file you obtained from the OriginLab website.


For example, if your license file is located at /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglab.lic, then you would enter the following command to start the service, and to keep the previous contents of the debug log file and to append new debug information to the bottom of the log file:

./lmgrd -c /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglab.lic -l +/home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglabdebug.log


Alternatively, you would use the following command to start the service, and to clear the previous contents of the debug log file. (The debug log file gets cleared when the command is issued.):

./lmgrd -c /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglab.lic -l /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglabdebug.log


For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6

./lmgrd -c <path>orglab.lic -l [+]<path>orglabDebug.log

where orglab.lic is the license file you obtained from the OriginLab website.


For example, if your license file is located at /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglab.lic, then you would enter the following command to start the service, and to keep the previous contents of the debug log file and to append new debug information to the bottom of the log file:

./lmgrd -c /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglab.lic -l +/home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglabdebug.log


Alternatively, you would use the following command to start the service, and to clear the previous contents of the debug log file. (The debug log file gets cleared when the command is issued.):

./lmgrd -c /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglab.lic -l /home/customer/www/originlab.comb/orglabdebug.log
