Q100211: How to check which licenses are available from an RLM server



This article explains how you can use check the status of your RLM server and see what licenses are available.  You can do this using the rlmutil program that is installed with the license server. You can also view what licences are installed on your server machine via the FLU 8.



The RLM server software included in the Foundry Licensing Tools (FLT) also includes a command line utility a program called for querying and managing the server called "rlmutil".  This is installed in the following location on the server machine:
  • Linux: /usr/local/foundry/LicensingTools<version>/bin/RLM/rlmutil
  • OSX: /Applications/TheFoundry/LicensingTools<version>/bin/RLM/rlmutil
  • Windows: C:\Program Files\The Foundry\LicensingTools<version>\bin\RLM\rlmutil.exe
To get check that the server is up, get a list of all the available licenses and see who is using them by running rlmutil with either of the following commands
rlmutil rlmstat -c /path/to/foundry_float.lic -a
rlmutil rlmstat -c 4101@serverName -a
where /path/to/ is the RLM license directory on the server and "serverName" is the hostname or IP address of your license server.
If you want to be able to check the server from another machine on your network then you can copy the "rlmutil" executable to a central location and run it with the second command above.

One of the features in the Foundry Licensing Utility (FLU) 8 is the ability to view a summary of the licenses installed on your machine.
