JTB FlexReport web report demo

JTB FlexReport is JTB World’s license monitoring and reporting system supporting among others FlexNet (FLEXlm), Sentinel, RLM, LM-X and other license systems.

JTB FlexReport web report demo is now available to try in beta version.

Visit http://jtbflexreportdemo.jtbworld.com/ to try the web report demo. Note the dates for available data to report on. To learn more about the reports and functionality see the Chart Client documentation. It works pretty much like the current Chart Client but gives the option to run reports in a web browser and it’s hopefully easier to get started with thanks to the wizard that is activated by default. It also works on mobile devices.

Soon it will be made available for customers to set up in their own environment and with their own database.

Please contact us if you run into any issues or have any comments on this functionality.

Example of usage: Start with Report Settings and select the Report Type you like to use as well as Date Range and some other settings. Scroll down and click on Next.

If Continuous Line Report Type is selected you have two choices, Feature Server or Detailed. Use Feature Server if you want to select only Features, Servers or groups of them. To also select Hosts, Users and groups of them select Detailed.

Click on Generate Chart and here’s the result:

Slow to license and start Revit

A customer run into this issue: “It takes approximately 90 seconds or longer to license Revit 2013/2014, even though our Flex licensing server is on the LAN. It only takes 20 seconds to license AutoCAD, but 7x longer for Revit.”

I was not able to find the solution but eventually the customer found out that “we discovered that we were running an antiquated version of the FlexLM server. When we set up our new server, we used the latest version. This solved the Revit licensing delays. It just takes 10 seconds for all versions of Revit to license.”

So in case you also run into this kind of slow startup of Revit or possibly other programs try to upgrade the FlexNet license manager/Autodesk network license manager.

Autodesk Network License Manager 11.12 together with other vendor daemons can cause problems

Up and Ready describes how to solve port conflicts after starting to use Autodesk Network License Manager 11.12 and for ArcGIS, you also need to use the 32 bit version of the Autodesk Network License Manager.

“For example, when configuring Autodesk licensing service with Foundry, ArcGIS or CamWorks, you will need to edit our license files to use a differnet port for lmgrd.exe. i.e. 27000 (default) to 27001”

http://knowledge.autodesk.com/search-result/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/How-to-change-the-lmgrd-port-number-on-a-FLEXlm-server-and-client.html

“if you are using Autodesk and Abaqus software in your company, you will need to even customize the adskflex.exe port (2080) in our license file”

Download page for FlexNet license server managers to close down

The Flexera software download page for FlexNet files will no longer be available after July 31, 2104. After that date, users of FlexEnabled software must contact the publisher of that software to obtain license server managers (lmadmin and lmgrd) and related utilities (lmutil and lmtools).

This is too bad. This means that it will be harder to access updates as the publishers usually make these available several months or more after the FlexNet license server managers and utilities are updated.

If you have FlexEnabled software you want to monitor usage for check out our JTB FlexReport solution.

FlexNet version 11.12.1

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.

DWG TrueView 2015 can remove educational plot stamps

If you visit www.autodesk.com/trueview you will find that the English version of Autodesk DWG TrueView 2015 now is available for download. Note that only Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 are supported operating systems.

Direct links to download:

DWG TrueView 2015

By default there is a dark color scheme and some icons have an updated look. Layout Tabs is a new icon that lets you display or hide layout and model tabs. The status bar where the coordinates are is now on the same row as the layout tabs.

The “New Tab” lets you open files and access Recent Documents.

In DWG Convert Modify Conversion Setup, “Remove Design Feed” is a new option.

DWG Convert 2015 Setup Settings

In the post AutoCAD Educational Version - Plot Stamp Not Detected! I speculated that “Autodesk DWG TrueView 2015 and DWG Convert to batch re-save drawings to get rid of the stamp.” and after testing I can verify that DWG Convert now remove the educational plot stamp just by re-saving the drawings. If you want to know if you have any of these infected drawings in your network use JTB World’s EduFinder.

Goodbye to  “Educational Version - Plot Stamp Detected This drawing will display the message, "PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT," Do you want to continue? If you continue, the message will mark this drawing and any drawings that reference it.”

SMS and SCCM Integration ReadMe
Improvements in Autodesk® deployment technology allow many administrators to streamline their process of integrating Autodesk deployments on Microsoft® Systems Management Server (SMS) and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). In most cases, Autodesk deployments can now be advertised using a single program line instead of individual program lines for each component in the deployment.
To advertise a deployment with a single program line, use the following syntax:
.\Img\Setup.exe /W /Q /I .\Img\<deployment name>.ini /language en-us
This sample command line assumes that the package contents are defined at the root folder of your Autodesk product deployment folder, and that the product language is US English (en-us). If you have created a combined deployment and you would like to advertise it, use the following syntax:
.\img\Setup.exe /w /x86 <adminImage's name> /x64 <adminImage's name>

Software Requirements
Before creating an SCCM advertisement, ensure that all target computers have Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework installed. Windows XP computers need Direct X installed prior to receiving a 2011 or later Autodesk product advertisement.

Component-level Advertisement
Special circumstances such as execution time limits may require you to advertise an Autodesk deployment at the component level. Please refer to <deployment name>_SCCM.txt for a listing of required program lines in the order they must occur on target computers. These commands will vary by deployment. For long command lines, use a batch file.

See also this post on install/uninstall.

This gives us an early sneak peek of what AutoCAD 2015  will look like. If you wonder about its system requirements they are already available here. You also find that AutoCAD 2015 is the only version officially supporting Windows 8.1 at this point.

I’ve also heard that Autodesk Subscription downloads already have 2015 available as well as the news that Network Licensing for AutoCAD LT 2015 is available and thus JTB FlexReport will also be able to monitor these FlexNet-based network licenses.

If you want to compare 2015 to what DWG TrueView 2014 looks like.

Cascading of AutoCAD 2014 with Product Design Suite 2014

If you use Autodesk Network License Manager and have licenses for both the point product AutoCAD 2014 and Product Design Suite 2014 on the license server but on the user’s machines only Product Design Suite 2014 installed, launching AutoCAD 2014 will take a Product Design Suite 2014 license. Why is that? AutoCAD 2014 shortcut is a vanilla AutoCAD profile of AutoCAD Mechanical 2014. So if if you want to have your users use the cheaper AutoCAD 2014 license instead you will have to also install the point product AutoCAD 2014.

  • Point Product AutoCAD 2014 = This is AutoCAD 2014 only!
  • AutoCAD 2014 in the Product Design Suite 2014 = AutoCAD Mechanical 2014 with Vanilla Profile.
  • AutoCAD Mechanical 2014 = One of the products in the Product Design Suite 2014.

FlexNet license manager 11.12

The updated FlexNet (FLEXlm) version (based on Flexera Software’s FlexNet Publisher 2013 R2) 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 as far as I could find. There might be some bug fixes too that not are documented.

License Server Diagnostics in the Debug Log

Enhanced license server diagnostics will now be emitted in the license server debug log. Additional diagnostics are prefixed by “(@lmgrd-SLOG@)” for the lmgrd and “(@<vendor>-SLOG@)” for the Vendor Daemon, facilitating easy grep-like extraction from the debug-log. The Vendor Daemon would emit the additional diagnostics when run with lmgrd or lmadmin. These diagnostics are intended to assist publishers and Flexera diagnose license server issues.
These diagnostics include:

For lmgrd:
Start timestamp, Version, ProcessID, Network Info (IPv4/IPv6 interface, listening port), command-line options, list of license files, whether the license server is running as a windows service.

For Vendor Daemon:
Start timestamp, Version, ProcessID, Network info (IPv4/IPv6 interface, listening port, select timeout of vendor daemon), Vendor daemon name, Options file used, Trusted storage accessed (yes/no), Host name, Virtual/physical environment, (limited) hypervisor info if virtual, Lmbind used (yes/no), #Restarts of vendor daemon since lmgrd startup, #Rereads since vendor daemon (re)start, Last reread time, Reread initiation type (automatic versus lmreread).

Every 4 hours (and at vendor daemon shutdown) the following performance data are logged:
Details of the 10 peak client transactions (including client hostname, user, transaction time, concurrent clients at time of transaction, memory usage (Windows only)), Peak concurrent clients served, High watermark memory usage (Windows only), Transaction time for last 10 transactions.

Some examples from a log:

lmgrd.exe, lmutil.exe and lmtools.exe are all version 11.12 now. It might take some time before vendors start supporting this new version.

Previous FlexNet 11.11.1 described.

JTB World’s JTB FlexReport license monitoring tool has been tested with and supports this new version.

Fix for crash during startup of an Autodesk 2014 product

This hotfix “Windows crash during license authorization Hotfix” by Autodesk can help if you have problem to start any of the 2014 versions of Autodesk products like AutoCAD 2014 or Revit 2014.

This error occurs when a computer does not have the hardware serial number in the BIOS. Two indications of the issue are described below:

1. When launching an Autodesk 2014 product, the user sees an error dialog such as the following during initialization, and an Autodesk Error Report dialog, and the product does not launch. You might see Error Aborting, FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x0000 Exception at eaf28ea0h or the like followed by the Error Report windows that says A software problem has cause AutoCAD to close unexpectedly.

2. Running the following command does not return a serial number:

wmic bios get serialnumber

The figure below shows the command result with a blank serial number.

If you get this result, this technical solution is applicable to you; otherwise, it is probably not applicable.

JTB FlexReport 7.4.3

This new version of JTB FlexReport license report solution adds some new functionality to help with your license tracking and solves some other issues:

  • Added support for Sentinel Protection Server logs. Available on the SLM tab in JTB FlexReport Config>Properties.
  • JTB FlexReport Detailed Reports added option to include or not include duplicates (for example with Process Monitor data when a user runs two or more sessions of a program at the same time you might want to not included duplicates). Also available as separate download. Direct link here.
  • Issues with the reports using these combinations are fixed: Feature Group-Server–Host Group and Features-Server Group-Host Group.
  • Discrepancy report bug fixed where some of the data ended up in wrong column.
  • Added a workaround for a rare bug in lmutil.exe that could cause incorrect usage. This is used when taking FlexNet usage snapshots.
  • Fixed a problem with Wildcard processing.
  • Fixed an error with Sentinel parsing: "Error in ProcessSentinel inner".
  • Fixed SLM parser to handle logs where the first rows in the log include LM_SERVER as user name, something that can happen if the log is started while there are users having licenses checked out. This could result in reports showing too much usage. If you have this problem you either need to filter out the SLM features in the tables tblUserDetailedLog and tblUserDetailedLogPrev and delete them or if you have MS Access as database, JTB FlexReport Database Administration.exe can be used, select the SLM features, specify a date range that is a bit larger than the existing data and then delete them. Alternatively start with a new database.

JTB FlexReport 7.4.2

This new version of JTB FlexReport license report solution solves the following issues:

  • Fixed an issue with the Get Feature Descriptions in JTB FlexReport Config where it just did not work to get the descriptions.

Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2014 network license

RSA 2013 to RSA 2014 Pro network license issue

Autodesk customers already owning Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis 2013 will be automatically upgraded to Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis Professional 2014.
For the network installations under subscription, as usual once upgraded, you will need to get a new license file. The new license file will be valid for the current and prior 3 version of the product but, this concerns the Professional versions only.
In fact, if you previously had an Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis 2013 network license, you will not be able to get a license from the new file.
You have to request a combined file that integrates both the 2014 Professional and the 2013 (http://www.autodesk.com/licensesupport).
Note: combining the files that you own won’t work as they have different issue dates.

If you upgraded from Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis 2013 Professional version everything is fine with the new license file.
