FlexLm tool install folder (not to do!)

When you install FlexLm license server program, make sure not to install to c:\flexlm\zuken folder.  More to this we cannot have c:\flexlm\zuken folder to run our tool.  This limitation coming from FlexLm tool.

We cannot have vendor daemon name folder or file under c:\flexlm folder.

If you do you may get something like following message on LMTOOLS.

"VD is starting, please check vendor daemon's status in debug log"

And in the log file you may see like below messages.


13:03:46 (lmgrd) SLOG: FNPLS-INTERNAL-VL1-1024
13:03:46 (lmgrd) Starting vendor daemons ...
13:03:46 (lmgrd) Started zuken (pid 13460)
13:03:46 (zuken) FlexNet Licensing version v11.13.1.2 build 173302 i86_n3
13:03:46 (zuken) cannot open lock file (C:\FLEXLM\zuken): Permission denied
13:03:46 (zuken) EXITING DUE TO SIGNAL 32 Exit reason 9
13:03:51 (lmgrd) zuken exited with status 32 (Exited because another server was running)
13:03:51 (lmgrd) MULTIPLE "zuken" license server systems running.
13:03:51 (lmgrd) Using Task Manager, stop zuken and run lmreread
13:03:51 (lmgrd)
13:03:51 (lmgrd) This error probably results from:
13:03:51 (lmgrd)   1. Another copy of the license server manager (lmgrd) is running.
13:03:51 (lmgrd)   2. Another copy of the vendor daemon is running.
13:03:51 (lmgrd)   3. The locking mechanism(s) were removed by an
13:03:51 (lmgrd)        outside program.


If you like to install license program under c:\flexlm folder then please install c:\flexlm or something like c:\flexlm\zuken_license folder.
