6.69 FAQ-915 Why do I see "license daemon: system error code: No such file or directory" error when starting the FLEXlm license server on Linux?

Last Update: 10/10/2023

If you fail to start the Origin license server in a Linux OS and get the following error message in the lmgrd log file

(lmgrd) license daemon: system error code: No such file or directory

Or get the following information in the lmstat output

Vendor daemon status (on server_name):
orglab: The desired vendor daemon is down (-97,121)

It is because the lmgrd daemon could not find the orglab daemon.

To resolve this problem,

  • Please first check if orglab file exists or not. If the orglab daemon does not exist or is damaged, please download it from our website.
  • Make sure orglab has execution permission. If not, you can execute a chmod 755 on orglab and then relaunch lmgrd.
  • Make sure your server machine has required libraries installed to run 32-bit binaries. You can install them like below:
    sudo apt update
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libncurses5:i386 zlib1g:i386
    sudo ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ld-linux.so.2 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3
  • If above checkings are passed but the problem still happens, please try following:
    1. Stop the FLEXLm service if already started.
    2. Edit the license file to make the following change
      VENDOR orglab <full path to orglab daemon binary>

      For example,

      VENDOR orglab /opt/OriginLicenseServer
    3. Restart FLEXlm service
