Should the Intel® License Manager for FLEXlm* be installed on the same OS that the license is limited to?

Problem :
I want to install the Intel® Software License Manager for FLEXlm* on a Windows* machine, however, my floating license is for Linux*. Can I? 

Resolution :
Yes, you can. The OS of the server system where the license manager is installed is irrelevant to the OS for the license(s) it supports.
The license server manager can be installed on either Windows*, Linux*, or Mac OS* X machines regardless of the OS for each of your floating and nodelocked Intel software product licenses.
