FLEXnet Licensing Manager (LMTools) : Truncated Server Status Window

The Perform Status Enquiry button in LMTools (circled Blue) is a good feature to display a snapshot of current active license status (ie. who is using which product license).

Problem Description
But, if you have many licenses and high number of users logged in, which cause longer status details, the status window will not be able to display the full activity list and will be truncated (circle Green).

Recommendation
To view the full active license status list, you can execute the Perform Status Enquiry command via Windows command-prompt, as follows:

  1. Go to Windows Command Prompt
  2. Go to License Manager folder : C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager
  3. Type command : lmutil.exe lmstat –a
  4. Full activity will be listed in Windows command prompt

For ease in analyzing, you can route the generated content into a text file (eg. output.txt) by using the following command : “> c:\output”

  1. Go to License Manager folder : C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager
  2. Type : C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager\lmutil lmstat –a > c:\output.txt.
  3. Output.txt file will be generated with the status content (below).

lmutil.exe lmstat –a can take very long time (several minutes) if you have many license servers. With many active users, this command
generates a lot of network activity. So if you're just interested in a specific server you can use lmutil.exe lmstat –a -c @server alternatively adding the port lmutil.exe lmstat –a -c port@server
