Checking the License Server Status
Any time you change the license.dat file or stop and restart the license manager you should check the server's status. Also, if users report they can't get a license, a good place to start checking for problems is to insure that the service is running correctly and that licenses are available. Use the lmtools.exe program to check the server status as needed.
To run the server status on Unix, type the command: ./lmstat -A to show all the active licenses in use - (shown below).
