I currently manage ~175 concurrent license services. Many are Flexnet based.

Many of my license servers host multiple vendor daemons, within the one FlexNet Publisher service.

The problem i have is that up until now, when an individual daemon crashes, i have to stop and start the entire lmadmin service to get it up an running again.
Recently i was reading about "lmreread" commands and the ability to restart an individual daemon. but everytime i attempt this, i get the following error:

My current command:
"lmreread -c "C:\ProgramData\FLEXlm\lmadmin\licenses\ALT\20170911 - license.dat" -vendor ALT"
"lmreread failed: You are not a license administrator. (-63,294)"

I am unsure if:
1. i have the wrong command
2. if this will even work with FlexNet Publisher
