Check if License server is running

Open up the Task Manager and check if lmgrd.exe is running. A screenshot of the Task Manager is shown below:

You can telnet to the port at the server to check if the server machine is up and running. Go to Start-Run , type in cmd and hit Enter. This will open up a command prompt. Type telnet license_server_name port_number and hit Ener. If it connects, you know the port is in use. If it doesn’t connect , it will immediately return with an error. The figure below shows the results of a failed telnet test. In this example, the name of the license server is red and the port number is 54009.This test ensures that the server machine is running.

The users can also run the lmstat command to ensure that the license server is running. Go to Start-Run , type in cmd and hit Enter to open a command prompt. Use the cd command to navigate to C:\Coventor\CoventorWare2008\licensing\NT40 directory. Type lmstat -a -c port@host -i and hit enter. If you get an error, it means license server is down. The figure below shows the use of lmstat command. The name of license server is red and the port number is 54000.
