2013.1 Licensing - Why does my FlexNET license not work properly when SELinux is enabled?


Why do my FlexNET-based licenses not work properly when my Linux system has SELinux enabled?


The FlexNET/FlexLM libraries rely on a programming technique called text relocation. If you enable SELinux, and SELinux is running in enforcing mode, the FlexNET licensing library cannot be opened.

To work around this problem, either change SELinux to run in permissive mode, or use the SELinux chcon tool to allow access to the text relocation required library (libSecurity.so).
