Determining Host IDs

When you generate licenses at SMP, you must specify the host ID of the machine where the licenses will be deployed.

SMP remembers the host information so that you can select the same license server when generating additional licenses.

To determine the host ID of the machine, run the lmutil utility from a terminal window or the Windows command prompt. For example:
lmutil lmhostid
Note: You can download the lmutil utility from either:

You can also determine the host ID using native operating system commands. See the Frequently Asked Questions topic "What is my Host ID?" at (requires login)
