2015.1 Licensing - (lmgrd) xilinxd exited with status 67 (not able to resolve local host)


I am trying to run lmgrd 11.13 on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. 

A few seconds after the server is launched, the xilinxd daemon exits with signal 67 (Not able to resolve local host).

(lmgrd) xilinxd using TC_port 56144
(Xilinxd) EXITING DUE TO SIGNAL 67 Exit reason 44
(lmgrd) xilinxd exited with status 67 (not able to resolve local host)
(lmgrd) This error probably results from:
(lmgrd)   1. DNS server not able to resolve localhost.
(lmgrd)   2. /etc/hosts file does not contain an entry for localhost.
(lmgrd) To correct the problem put the localhost entry in /etc/hosts file.


This error occurs on Machines which have a problem looking up the localhost. 

To confirm this, you can ping localhost on the machine. 

When there are issues, the ping does not work. 

To work around the issue, as an administrator edit C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts and uncomment the following line.

#       localhost

If you are still unable to run the server after modifying the hosts file, look at the firewall settings to see if disabling or lowering severity allows the server to run.
