    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


    Troubleshooting

    1. send us the status inquiry result, and log file and license file.
    2. check that mac adderss (ethernet address) is still correct.
    3. If can't start, make sure lmgrd is shut down properly. Use lmtools several times, with Force shutdown checked. Then check task manager. If there is more than one flexnet server running, you may see many lmgrd.exe processess, so you don't want to end them. If only one flexnet server, then end lmgrd.exe.
    4. check configuration and try to start again.
