For starter keys, save the attachment that came with your account activation email to a file on the computer on which you are performing the PGI evaluation. For trial license keys, save the displayed software license key lines to a file on the computer on which you are performing the PGI evaluation.
For both types of licenses, set the environment variable LM_LICENSE_FILE to the full pathname of that file as outlined in the PGI Installation Guide or the PGI Visual Fortran Installation Guide. For those familiar with FlexNet, note that PGI starter and trial license keys do not require running a license daemon.
The hostid of your computer is the MAC, or Ethernet, address of the first non-wireless network card found in the system. This hostid is also referred to as the FlexNet hostid in PGI documentation. The hostid is not the value printed by the /usr/bin/hostid command.
You can determine your system's hostid several ways. If you have already installed the PGI software, then run this command:
% lmutil lmhostid
The lmutil utility is located in the PGI bin directory after installation of the PGI products. See PGI Installation Guide for help installing PGI products.
Otherwise, run the command /sbin/ifconfig eth0 and look for the string beginning with "HWaddr". In this example
% /sbin/ifconfig eth0 eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:12:44:5f:5a:0e inet addr:10.0.0.1 Bcast:10.0.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 ...
The hostid is the value "00:12:44:5f:5a:0e".
Under the terms of the PGI evaluation license agreement, each account is permitted to generate one 15 day trial license every six months, or whenever a new release comes out.
