License server status: 27000@licserver
    License file(s) on licserver: /opt/Rational/config/licserver.dat:

lmgrd is not running: Cannot connect to license server system. (-15,570:115 "Operation now in progress")


License server can not correctly resolve the host name in license file due to invalid domain name system.

You can add the IP address and host name into /etc/hosts file before starting installation, so that the license server can correctly resolve the host name in license file.

For example: licserver
