5.10 Why can I not find the lmhostid utility?

If you are using Unix/Linux, you have probably not run the makelinks.sh script.

The makelinks.sh script creates a series of links to the lmutil program, one of which is for lmhostid. This script is in the appropriate directory for your platform. See the Getting Started Guide for your ARM product for the location of this directory.

If you are using Windows, the makelinks.sh script is not available. Instead:


  1. Open a command prompt.
  2. Change to the directory where your license utilities are installed,. This is typically C:\FLEXlm.
  3. Type lmutil lmhostid at the command prompt.
