I have two problems with a license I just obtained from Portland Group. I’m running my license server on a Linux box (well, two Linux boxes, because of license server redundancy.)
First, the license I received is set to use port 27000, and I have other flexlm licenses using that port. I want to change the port number for my PG license (to minimize breaking the many users of the other license), but then, at license manager startup, I get many errors right away saying
Invalid license key (inconsistent authentication code)
for each feature listed in license.dat.
So, does anyone know how to change the port number that the license server uses, or do I have to request PG to cut me a new license file?
Second, when I kill off the other license server on 27000, and start the PG license, everything is fine until I try to run a compiler, then I get the same error (inconsistent auth code)! I wonder if my editing (changing 27000 to 27047 and back to 27000) messed up something in the license file? Are there hidden spaces or non-printable characters I might have taken out by mistake? Does the file have to have both carriage-return and line-feeds (Windows format text file?)
