About lmadmin

The latest FlexNet Publisher license server manager, lmadmin, is currently available for selected platforms.  lmadmin represents a significant milestone in the evolution of FlexNet Publisher, offering a graphical user interface that provides a number of server administration improvements around usability, efficiency, and capability.  See the License Administration Guide and lmadmin Migration FAQ (links above) for additional information.

lmadmin is backward compatible to version 9.2 of the vendor daemon and your FlexEnabled applications.

The legacy license server manager, lmgrd, is still available and supported.

Note to users of FlexNet Manager for Engineering Applications (formerly called FLEXnet Manager): Versions 12.0 and later are compatible with lmadmin. If you are running an earlier version, please use lmgrd as your license server manager.

Helpful tips

  • COMPATIBILITY: The version of the license server manager must be greater than or equal to the version of FlexNet Publisher used in the application/application's vendor daemon. You can always use the latest license server manager and utilities from this site; they will be backward-compatible with your application and its license file.
  • VERSION INFORMATION: Use lmver (part of lmutil) to determine the version of FlexNet Publisher used by your application. For example, if Company XYZ has provided a program called Spell, use the command:
    lmver Spell; lmver XYZ.
  • lmver would report the FlexNet Publisher version used in the Spell application and the XYZ vendor daemon.

    • To determine the version of lmadmin itself, use: lmadmin -version.
    • To determine the version of lmgrd itself, use: lmver lmgrd.

    lmadmin, lmgrd and lmutil are supplied by Flexera Software. The vendor daemon and application are supplied by the software vendor.

  • SUPPORT: End users should contact their software vendor for support. The vendor is the only source for updates to the vendor daemons and applications, and for license file changes.
