unknown status after lmgrd -96 error

I have PGI installed in /usr/local/pgi on an AMD64, with my licence file in /usr/local/flexlm/pgi.dat, and a symlink /usr/local/pgi/license.dat pointing to it. I have also tried moving the file itself to /usr/local/pgi/license.dat but no difference results.

The resulting output of running lmgrd is as follows below. I’ve truncated the 10-times-repeated set of output down to twice.

Am I doing something wrong here? As far as I understand, I need to run the installer, put in our license file, set the PGI, LM_LICENSE_FILE, PATH and MANPATH env vars, and I’m ready to run.

TIA,
Greg.

Hi Greg,

The Flexlm documentation says that error -96 occurs when the license server is not running. But it looks up to me! So something must be preventing a TCP/IP connection between pgroupd and lmgrd. Do you have a local firewall enabled? Also, are you able to telnet to tsunami while running on tsunami (i.e. Can your system establish a TCP/IP connect with itself?)
