|The information on this page refers to v4.4.3 and later, which introduced an installation program that installs both LM-X License Server and the end-user tools and removed some commands from lmx-serv. For applicable to earlier versions, see documentation for previous versions.|
The lmx-serv command will let you run the license server as a service in Windows or as a daemon in the background on Unix. However, it is recommended that you use the provided installer to install and start the license server instead of using lmx-serv.
The lmx-serv command usage is as follows.
[-config configfile -licpath licensefile -logfile logfile -port portnumber]
[-background -config configfile -licpath licensefile -logfile logfile -port portnumber]
Run the license server as a daemon in the background.
Specify an optional path to an lmx-serv.cfg configuration file. Typing the full path is required. If the server is run without the -c parameter, it will use default settings.
Specify an optional license file path that will be read in addition to those specified within the lmx-serv.cfg configuration file.
Specify an optional logfile path, which will override any logfile settings in the lmx-serv.cfg configuration file.
Specify an optional port number, which will override the port number set in the configuration file.
Print out usage information for these commands.
We recommend enclosing all switches (e.g., configuration file path) within double quotes (" ") to avoid problems with white spaces.
The following example shows running the license server on Windows from a command line.
