Licensing - Xlicsrvrmgr gives ERROR: flxActCommonInit result 2 when creating a request for a floating server

Description

I am setting up a floating server using activation based licensing.

When going through the steps to set up the machine, creating the request causes the following error:
 
root@tardis:/home/tools/xilinx/linix_flexlm/linux_flexlm_v11.11.0/lnx64.o# ./install_fnp.sh

root@tardis:/home/tools/xilinx/linix_flexlm/linux_flexlm_v11.11.0/lnx64.o#
However when running the Xlicsrvrmgr, I got the following:
Redhat:
[root@egad bin]# ./xlicsrvrmgr cr Xilinx_licensereq.xml
ERROR: flxActCommonInit result 2   .
Exit(2) FLEXnet initialisation error.

Solution

This error is a result of the command not being able to find the libraries necessary at runtime. 

It was found that the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variables did not contain a search location of the current directory (dot).

If you add/append the directory where "libXLicSrvrMgrFNP.so" is stored to PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH, the command will run normally.
