    I think that's expected: the uncounted licenses do not require a license server, and therefore lmstat doesn't show anything related to them, but the licensed code can check out features from the unserved license file.

    Flexlm not reading Solaris Sun demo licenses

    I saw something about running the compiler with the -xlicinfo option to get status, this is what it says about the -zlicinfo option: " You can find out information on the status of your license by using the -xlicinfo option. When you do that, no compilation is done and no license is checked out. The compiler returns information on the status of the licensing system, including a list of licensed users."

    Now, it states that the Sun Workshop Compiler will never expire - that shows that the demo licenses from Sun are in place. But it shows total licenses as zero and the available licenses as zero.

    From: http://www.sun.com/software/licensin...s3.0_sparc.txt
    the RTU is set to 0, I read somewhere that this means infinite. So do you think that everything is in place?

    # ./cc -xlicinfo

    License server : (Null)

    Sun WorkShop Compiler C Version 4.200 expires on : Never

    Total Licenses : 0 Licenses Available : 0

    Using LM_LICENSE_FILE = /opt/SUNWspro/bin/./../SC4.2/bin/../../license_dir/sunpro.lic,node

    The information above is for the first occurrence of the requested
    feature in the first license server on the list.
    Set the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable differently to
    see information about other license servers or use lmstat(1).

    Flexlm not reading Solaris Sun demo licenses

    More about the "0" licenses:
    From: http://4bcad.com/doc/notes/sun_license_mgr_flex
    "To identify a demo license, make sure you have:

    * a definite expiration date, which should be about 30 days since the
    password is requested.

    * 0 (zero) number of users ( means unlimited, and is located after the
    date ).

    * the keyword "DEMO" at the end of the FEATURE line."


    so, does this mean that I indeed have unlimited licenses(0 users) and that they are never ending?

    Correct, a count of zero means "uncounted", and an expiration of 1-jan-0 means "permanent".

    Is this expected output, seems to be using the correct license file:

    # ./cc -xlicinfo

    License server : (Null)

    Sun WorkShop Compiler C Version 4.200 expires on : Never

    Total Licenses : 0 Licenses Available : 0

    Using LM_LICENSE_FILE = /opt/SUNWspro/bin/./../SC4.2/bin/../../license_dir/sunpro.lic,node

    The information above is for the first occurrence of the requested
    feature in the first license server on the list.
    Set the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable differently to
    see information about other license servers or use lmstat(1).
