Licensing - Starting License Server FlexNet v11.11 reports "SERVER line says FLEXID=9-050fd852, hostid is (Can't get hostid of type 15 [])"

Description

I have updated the license server to use FlexNet version 11.11.

I am receiving the errors shown in the lmgrd log below.

Solution

FlexID dongles are not supported for trusted storage activation licenses (Xilinx Answer62512).

Xilinxd 11.11.0 or later will check for activation licenses on the server.  If the certificate based license file used to start lmgrd (and xilinxd) uses a FlexID dongle hostID, an invalid hostid message will be issued.


As a workaround, customer can use flexnet v11.6 utilities as long as no activation licenses are being used.
