• Check that the hostname in the licensefile is also listed in the /etc/hosts file.

The /etc/hosts file looks something like this: localhost.localdomain localhost4
::1 localhost.localdomain localhost6

Add the name of your license server to the end of the lines, so that they look like this: localhost.localdomain localhost4 myservername
::1 localhost.localdomain localhost6 myservername


  • If the above solution doesn't work, try to change the hostname in the licensefile to localhost and add the line localhost in the /etc/hosts file. It is also possible to get a hint of what is wrong by using the command /usr/sbin/ping hostname.
