LICENCE MANAGER PROBLEM: Failed to checkout licence

I’m having problems trying to setup the trial licence of the PGI Fortran compiler. I’ve followed the instructions in the install.txt up to the licensing section. I logged into my account, clicked on ‘Create trial keys’ and saved the ‘licence.dat’ that was generated. I then put this licence.dat into /opt/pgi/licence.dat. I have the correct paths setup as well:

export PATH=/opt/pgi/linux86/10.9/bin:$PATH
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/pgi/linux86/10.9/man
export LM_LICENSE_FILE=$LM_LICENSE_FILE:/opt/pgi/license.dat

However, when I try to compile something, it says this:

pgi-f95-lin32: LICENSE MANAGER PROBLEM: Failed to checkout license

Have I missed something?

Thanks for any help


If one of the 12-digit outputs of

lmutil lmhostid

matches the value in the trial license, the trial license
should work.

Put /opt/pgi/license.dat at the start of your license path.

export LM_LICENSE_FILE=/opt/pgi/license.dat:$LM_LICENSE_FILE

and make sure that you have NOT started the license
manager on this platform. The trial licenses do not use
the license server.

I have reset your trial license so you can generate one more.
