i have a cluster, front-end has multiple NICs

# ./linux86-64/7.0/bin/lmutil lmhostid
The FLEXlm host ID of this machine is "00188b4dad14"

# /sbin/ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:18:8B:4D:AD:14

# grep swallowtail /etc/hosts
129.133.1.224 swallowtail.wesleyan.edu # has to be first for postfix to work
192.168.1.254 swallowtail.local swallowtail # originally frontend-0-0

my first couple of lines of the trial license.dat file
SERVER ANY ANY 27000
FEATURE pghpf-linux86-64 pgroupd 7.000 7-jun-2007 0 \
4B98A0A1F8DBD2D78669 VENDOR_STRING=TRIAL:8 \
HOSTID=00188b4dad14 ck=29
...

the error when starting lmgrd up
# 14:54:23 (lmgrd) "swallowtail.wesleyan.edu": Not a valid server hostname, exiting.

i've tried with line below (same error)
SERVER swallowtail.local 00188b4dad14 27000

i've tried with line below and it reports 'no vendor or daemon lines)
SERVER swallowtail.wesleyan.edu 00188b4dad14 27000

so i added line below ... now it starts but i receive the error
'15:19:08 (pgroupd) Invalid license key (inconsistent authentication code)'
DAEMON pgroupd /share/apps/pgi/linux86-64/7.0/bin/pgroupd


Please advise.

Hi Henk,

The trial license is node-locked, meaning the license it configured for use on a specific system, and can not be used with the lmgrd server. Instead, revert the license.dat file back to it's original values and set your environment's LM_LICENSE_FILE variable to the full path of the lincense.dat file.

If you need a temporary license for use with lmgrd, please contact license@pgroup.com.

Thanks,
Mat
