The Intel Debugger (IDB) Version 11.0 provided in the new 11.0 Release of the Intel Fortran and C++ Compiler Professional Editions for Linux now has FLEXlm licensing enabled.
Use of IDB Version 11.0 on Linux requires the Intel compiler license file (.lic) contain the DbgL component. Attempts to use this version of IDB without the appropriate license file will result in the following error:
Intel Debugger for applications running on Intel 64, Version 11.0, Build [1.1510.2.66]
Error: A license for DbgL is not available (-5,357).
Make sure that a license file is being used that contains a license
for the requested feature. If your license requires a license server,
make sure that the server is using the right license file (usually,
this would be the same license file that is being used by this
application), and make sure that you have not changed the license
file since starting the server.
License file(s) used were (in this order):
1. Trusted Storage
3. /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses

The resolution of this issue requires Linux only customers obtain an updated Intel license (.lic) file containing the required DbgL component for Linux only. How to accomplish that depends on your license type.
