8.11 Shutting down a Windows server
Use the graphical user interface to stop a Windows floating license server.
To use the graphical user interface to stop a Windows floating license server:
Avoid using the Windows Task Manager to terminate the floating license server daemons
because the processes might not end gracefully. This might cause problems on server restart.
If you must forcibly shut down a server, always stop lmgrd before
Start the lmtools.exe program.
Click the Start/Stop/Reread tab.
Click the Stop Server button to shut down the floating license
The server log, if you are using one, records that the server has been shut down.
