If set, the first value, 2005, is the port the license manager is listening on and <hostname> is the name of the server where the license manager is running.
Check the permissions on the license.dat file.
Code: % ls -l license.dat sample output -rwxr-xr-x 1 lmuser other 0 Nov 14 2006 lockESRI
The correct permissions are:
If the permissions are not correct, change them with the chmod command:
Code: % chmod 755 license.dat
Note: It is necessary to be logged in as either root, the file owner, or as a member of the group that owns the license file to change the file's permissions.
If the license manager server is running on a server other than the system being used, start ArcInfo on that server.
If ArcInfo starts on the server, check the date and time on both servers. The maximum time difference between the two systems cannot be greater than four hours.
If all is correct, the problem is likely the network itself.
Use the '/usr/sbin/ping <hostname>' command to see if the server is online. If 'hostname is alive' is not returned, there is a problem with the network and it is necessary to contact the network administrator.
Code: % /usr/sbin/ping samplesvr sample output samplesvr is alive %
