The LM-X End-user utility lets you get the HostID values for the computer system. For machine-locked licenses, application vendors will use HostID values to create licenses specifically for your system. The LM-X End-user utility also lets you:

  • See who is currently using specific licenses on the license server, and see the borrow, grace and trial licenses currently checked out
  • Remotely access the license server
  • Remove users from the license server
  • Read and verify a usage database and print the usage information to the screen

The LM-X End-user utility may be run by any user; you do not need administrator privileges to run the utility. The lmxendutil command usage is as follows. Optional parameters are enclosed in square brackets ( [ ] ). Variables are shown in italic text.
