7.14 Starting a new server debug log

You can create a new server debug log without restarting the floating license server by using the lmswitch command.

Regularly creating new debug logs, for example on a weekly basis, can help you to maintain organized records of floating license server activity. You can use this command on the Windows or Unix/Linux command line. Change to the directory where your floating license server utilities are installed, then type the command:
lmutil lmswitch -c license_file_name armlmd new_logfile_name
where:
license_file_name
specifies the fully qualified path name of the license file being used
new_logfile_name
specifies the fully qualified path name of the new server debug log file.
Your original log file is closed with a message that the server debug log is being switched to new_logfile_name. The top of new_logfile_name tells you the name of the previous server debug log file.
