The updated FlexNet (FLEXlm) version 11.12.1 (based on Flexera Software’s FlexNet Publisher 2014 R1) has been released and is now available as a public download as well as the updated License Administration Guide.
Here are the news in Version 11.12.1 as far as I could find. There might be some bug fixes too that not are documented.
Support reclaim of borrowed license (trusted storage)
Improved Virtualization support
“Binding in a Virtual Environment” subject has been updated on page 25. The text “Do not change MAC address of the virtual machine.” has been added as well.
“lmremove” subject has been split into “lmremove (in License-File-Based Licensing)” and “lmremove (in Trusted-Storage-Based Licensing)”
There are two new option keywords added:
ACTIVATION_LOWWATER Controls the number of licenses that cannot be borrowed or transferred.
ACTIVATION_ EXPIRY_DAYS Controls the activation request based on the expiration dates mentioned in options file during activation.
Previous version FlexNet license manager 11.12
lmgrd.exe, lmutil.exe and lmtools.exe are all version 11.12.1 now. It might take some time before vendors start supporting this new version but it most probably will work to update it if you for some reason want or need to do it.
JTB World’s JTB FlexReport license monitoring tool has been tested with and supports this new version.
