License Server Shipped With Forte Developer Fails With "FLEXlm platform not enabled"
Last updated on AUGUST 03, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Solaris Studio - Version Forte Developer 6 Update 2 to Forte Developer 6 Update 2 [Release 6.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The "FlexLM" license manager shipped with Forte Developer 6 Update 2 and earlier fails to start up on Solaris 10 Update 10.
Error in the license manager logfile is "FLEXlm platform not enabled":
3/14 0:00:23 (lmgrd) FLEXlm (v2.61) started on vcscl01 (Sun) (3/14/112)
3/14 0:00:23 (lmgrd) License file: "/etc/opt/licenses/licenses_combined"
3/14 0:00:23 (lmgrd) Started lic.SUNW
3/14 0:00:23 (lic.SUNW) Daemon initialization error: FLEXlm platform not enabled
3/14 0:00:23 (lmgrd) Please correct problem and restart daemons
Truss shows the following:
16087/1: sysinfo(SI_HW_SERIAL, "2222855794", 100) = 11
16087/1: sysinfo(SI_HW_PROVIDER, "Oracle Corporation", 100) = 19
The problem shows up if the kernel patch from Solaris 10 Update 10 is installed:
o On Solaris on SPARC, if 144500-19 is installed
o On Solaris on x86, if 144501-19 is installed
These patches bring the fix for <BUG:15655335> : SUNBT6968281-SOLARIS_11 PRTCONF NEEDS TO BE ORACLE BRANDED, which changes the SI_HW_PROVIDER from "Sun_Microsystems" to "Oracle Corporation".
FlexLM starts up only of the SI_HW_PROVIDER is "Sun_Microsystems".
