FLEXnet Licensing error: -97,121


Yesterday I submitted a new “hostid” for my permanent license key and downloaded the new one to replace the original license. However, after I did this the error will occur when I try to compile my code.

It told me that “The desired vendor daemon is down”, and I don’t know how to fix it, can anyone helps?

I only change the hostid and the machine is still the same with everything installed in it.


Please send the output dialogs of

  1. lmutil lmhostid
  2. lmutil lmhostid -hostname
  3. /sbin/ifconfig
  4. cat /etc/hosts

to license@pgroup.com


I had the same error after updating my license. I fixed it by running the pgi_license_tool and choosing option 2. This reinstalled and restarted the license server, after which everything was OK.
