problems with trial version

I cannot seem to start the license manager for the trial version of PGI. It says the following as output:

18:58:29 (lmgrd) FlexNet Licensing (v11.11.0.0 build 106800 x64_lsb) started on (linux) (1/31/2014)

The trial licenses do not use the license service (lmgrd).
Do not run ‘lmgrd.rc start’ Just store the license on each machine
using the compilers, as $PGI/license.dat.
