The information on this page refers to LM-X v4.4 or newer, which added the -denials option. This option is not available in previous versions of LM-X.
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.
Displays HostID values of your computer system.
lmxendutil -licstat [-vendor vendor_name -host host -port port -network
Displays statistics and lists which users are currently using which licenses on a specific license server. Information for the borrow, grace and trial licenses currently checked out is also returned unless one or more options are specified; for example, specifying -borrow will result in only borrow information being returned. If the -denials option is specified, this command additionally prints detailed information about denials for current and disconnected users for the past 24 hours, including username, hostname, IP address, login times, and denial times.
lmxendutil -licstatxml [-vendor vendor_name -host host -port port
Displays the same information as for -licstat, but in XML format.
lmxendutil -restartserver [-host host -port port -password password]
Remotely restarts the license server.
lmxendutil -shutdownserver [-host host -port port -password password ]
Remotely shuts down the license server.
lmxendutil -removeuser -clientusername username -clienthostname host
Removes a user from the license server. Parameter descriptions are as follows:
Optional parameter that connects to the specified license server host. If you do not enter this optional parameter, the local host is used.
Optional parameter that connects to license server on port 'myport'. If you do not enter this optional parameter, the default port is used.
Optional parameter that uses the specified password. If you do not use this optional parameter explicitly, you will be prompted for the password (in this case, the password you enter is not displayed on the screen as you type).
lmxendutil -readusagedb usage.db
Reads the specified usage database and performs a verification, then prints the usage information to the screen. (See Pay Per Use.)
