I wish to install the flexlm server on a host which belongs to several networks. The hostname of that server points to a network that the compute nodes cannot access. Therefore, if they try to reach the license server by the name in the license file they cannot reach it.
My question is : when you create a license file you ask for a hostname and an lmhostid. Does it have to be the hostname or can it be an ipname that points to a different network ?
If it is the hostname does it mean I must provide my compute nodes with a route to the hostname so they can reach the flexlm server ?
Thank you for your help.
