How to find Host ID for Floating licenses

Identifying the Host Name and Host ID
The host name and host ID are system-level identifiers on supported platforms that are used in the license file to identify the node on which you plan to install the Intel License Manager for FLEXlm* and license file. To enable you to obtain a counted license, these unique values must be available when you register your product. For node-locked licenses, you will also need the host name and host id of the node from which your applications will run, if different from the node for the Intel License Manager for FLEXlm*.  Follow the directions below to obtain the host name and host id for each supported platform.

For CoFluent products: Please refer to product documentation for instructions on how to find your composite host ID for node-locked and floating licenses.

Microsoft Windows*
1. From the Start menu, click Run...
2. Type cmd in the Open: field, then click OK.
3. Type ipconfig /all at the command prompt, and press Enter.

In the resulting output, host name is the value that corresponds to Host Name, and host id is the value that corresponds to Physical Address.

For example, if the output of ipconfig /all included the following:
Host Name . . . . . . . : mycomputer
. . .
Physical Address . . . . : 00-06-29-CF-74-AA
then host name is mycomputer and the host ID is 00-06-29-CF-74-AA.

Linux*
1. Run the hostname command to display the host name.
2. Run the command /sbin/ifconfig eth0 to display the hardware address.
For example, if the /sbin/ifconfig eth0 command returns
HWaddr 00:D0:B7:A8:80:AA, then the host ID is 00:D0:B7:A8:80:AA.
It is strongly recommended that users run the lmhostid utility to obtain the hostid value required to generate the counted licenses. The lmhostid utility can be found in the install location to which Intel License Manager for FLEXlm* is installed.

Mac OS* X on Intel® Architecture
1. Run the hostname command to display the host name.
2. Run the command /sbin/ifconfig en0 ether to display the hardware address.
The following is an example of an address that could be returned by this command:
en0: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
ether 00:13:20:60:23:4f
It is strongly recommended that users run the lmhostid utility to obtain the hostid value required to generate the counted licenses. The lmhostid utility is installed to the same location as the Intel License Manager for FLEXlm*.

So... Dilbert worked on these

So... Dilbert worked on these instructions. For Linux, the installer checks to be sure you have a license server (for floating) - so you can't get the lmhostid command(s) without installing and you can't install unless you get the hostid.

I'll have to go see if Globetrotter has them available. Most of our vendors break out the licenseing software separately just for this type of occassion.
