creating Second Service for Flexlm under Windows
In some cases, the server will have Flexlm installed already and running a service for
an existing software (Cadence, Ansoft, Mentor etc.).
Here is how it is done...
Define a port number in the first line of Artwork's license file. The port should be open and different than the port number used by other applications.
SERVER ASMSC32 0020E06AD89F 27001 DAEMON artwork c:\flexlm\artwork.exeThe second line with the daemon statement should properly point to the "artwork.exe" daemon.
Next, you'll need to set up a new service in LMTOOLS.
Stop/Restart license manager
Go to the Start/Stop/Reread tab and click Start Server. You should now have two servers running on the same machine with different port numbers. You can quit lmtools at this point.
Add the new port@host to your LM_LICENSE_FILE variable (with a semicolon to separate it from the previous value).
