FlexLM User View

The following will allow users to check the status of the FlexLM server and see who may be using a SpinFire Ultimate license.

You will need the “lmutil.exe” utility installed on your machine, see links below:


  • Copy the lmutil.exe file to a shared directory on your network. Be sure the Client has access to the license Server using the DNS resolution.
  • Create a Batch file with the following information:

ECHO License Manager query SpinFire PRO Start
lmutil lmstat -c port number@server name -f SpinFire11
ECHO License Manager query end

Note: You will need to enter the TCP / IP port number and the server name or the server IP address.

  • Example: lmutil lmstat -c 27000@Dell-M4500 -f SpinFire11

The results of the command should look like the following:
