lmutil lmhostid Command not found

Hagai Pettel



A customer of Artwork's reported that on his Linux CentOS 7.7 workstation she could not run the lmutil lmhostid command

hanamalia:tester: $ ../lmutil lmhostid 
hanamalia:tester: $ "Command not found"


The flexlm licensing tools require that the linux install includes the LSB (Linux Standard Base) libraries. This error message was generated because on the customer's Centos OS, LSB had not been installed. The solution is to install the LSB libraries. This can be done using yum. An example is shown below (first su to become root)

# yum install redhat-lsb.x86_64
