Determining Host IDs for Machines with Multiple Network Adapters

On some platforms, the host ID is derived from the network adapter address.

If the machine where your product is installed or where the license server is hosted has multiple network adapters, running lmutil lmhostid returns one host ID for each network adapter, and returns output similar to this:

      The FLEXlm host ID of this machine
      is ""0013023c8251 0015c507ea90"" 
      Only use ONE from the list of hostids.
It is important that you:
  • Choose only one host ID to enter during license generation.

  • Use the value associated with the primary wired Ethernet adapter.

  • Do not use values associated with internal loopback or virtual adapters.

If you cannot determine the host ID using the lmutil lmhostid output, use the native operating system commands to get additional details.
