INTEL vendor daemon shutting itself off

INTEL vendor daemon shutting itself off

I have just installed the Intel Composer XE suite with a floating license. Along with it, of course I installed the flexlm package. I believe I have set it up according to the directions, but I am having difficulties. When I initially start the license server with

`pwd`/ -c `pwd`/server.lic -l `pwd`/

Both the vendor and license daemon start, as can be tested with lmstat or by running ps -e and looking for the processes and INTEL. The output for lmstat -c server.lic is initially

lmstat - Copyright (c) 1989-2004 by Macrovision Corporation. All rights reserved.
Flexible License Manager status on Mon 12/12/2011 13:18

License server status:
License file(s) on /opt/intel/flexlm/server.lic: license server UP (MASTER) v9.2

Vendor daemon status (on

INTEL: UP v9.2

Unfortunately, icc and ifort do not run citing (in the case of icc):

Error: A license for CCompL is not available (-92,147).

License file(s) used were (in this order):
1. Trusted Storage
** 2. /opt/intel/composer_xe_2011_sp1.7.256/Licenses/COM_L_CMP__XXXXXXXX.lic

icc: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license

However, after some period of time, the INTEL daemon turns itself off, and lmstat reports the same except that the last line changes to:

INTEL: The desired vendor daemon is down (-97,121)

ps -e confirms that INTEL is no longer running. Running icc at this point gives the same error message as when INTEL was running.

At one point, I ran lmstat and saw the following message:

INTEL: Cannot read data from license server

which seemed to occur right before INTEL shut itself off.

For what it is worth, I am already running an instance of lmgrd for the PGI compiler, which is already installed successfully on my machine a few days ago. I am not sure if this might be related.

I am not sure what is wrong. I appreciate any help anyone can offer.
