Error description

  • Customer testing Redundant servers on 7.1. Customer added Team U
    nifying Platform license keys to license file. After importing o
    n all 3 servers and starting them she was receiving Flexlm error
     -15,10 Winsock Connection refused.
    
    I have included the customers log file and the customers license
     file as well in an attachment.
    
    I found that the ibmratl daemon was shutting down the servers si
    nce it had nothing to do. I had the user comment out the ibmratl
     daemon in the license file and that fixed the problem. Not sure
     if a fix can be done so this does not happen when customers sta
    rt to migrate to 7.1 release. Single server works as expected fr
    om the previous releases.
    
    From RATLC01278376
    
    This is confirmed in lab tests to be a Flexlm v11.5 regression.
    This problem did not happen with older v11.3 Flexlm release.
    The workaround to to comment out the daemon lines that is not us
    ed in customer's license files.

    The license admin tool should not generate the 2 daemon
    lines and ensure the correct VENDOR line is in place for the
    common vendor daemon "ibmratl"
