Frequently asked question
Note: There is a time limit in which ArcGIS Administrator must receive a response from the License Manager or it determines that none are available.
This is why Esri recommends that customers 'lock' the License Manager to specific ports in the service.txt file. For License Manager 2018.1 the location for this file is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\LicenseManager\binThe port added on the second line of the service.txt file should be in the range of 27000-27009. It cannot be the same as the port in the first line.
