How to get the FLEXnet hostID?

We use Flexera's FLEXnet software for license protection. To provide you with a license file, we need the "hostID" information of either your computer or of your floating license server.

Easy methods to obtain the hostID

Linux
The MAC address ("Physical Address") of the network adapter is used as the hostID. Start a terminal and type in the following to extract this information without running the lmutil binary:
    % /sbin/ifconfig -a | grep 'Hwaddr\|ether'
    eth0 ... HWaddr 00:12:34:56:78:9A 
Remove the colons (':') to get the hostID. In this example, the hostID is 00123456789A (the result is always 12 characters). Pick up the hostID and enter it into the field "Your FLEXnet hostID" above.
Note: The Linux "hostid" command reports a 6- or 8-character result that is not a valid hostID for the FLEXnet license software.
Windows
The MAC address ("Physical Address") of the network adapter is used as the hostID. Start a command prompt (Click Start->Run and type "cmd") and type the following:
    C:\> ipconfig -all
    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
       ...
       Physical Address. . . . . . . : 00-50-56-B3-68-A5
Remove the hyphens ('-') to get the hostID. In this example, the hostID is 005056B368A5 (the result is always 12 characters). Pick up the hostID and enter it into the field "Your FLEXnet hostID" above.
Solaris
On all Solaris machines the command 'hostid' can be used to determine the hostID of the system. Start a terminal and type in the following:
    % /usr/bin/hostid
    84c3c53a
The result is the hostID and is always eight characters. Pick up the hostID and enter it into the field "Your FLEXnet hostID" above.

Using "lmutil" or "lmtools.exe" to get the hostID

To get the FLEXnet hostID, you must run the FLEXnet tool "lmutil" with argument "lmhostid" inside a terminal window (xterm on UNIX or "Command Prompt" on Windows). E.g.:
    $ lmutil lmhostid
    lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2013 Flexera Software LLC. All Rights Reserved.
    The FlexNet host ID of this machine is "0018f322ceb6"
In this example, you should pick up the value "0018f322ceb6" and enter it into the field "Your FLEXnet hostID" above. You can download lmutil directly from the Flexera download page (registration is requested).

Notes for Windows Users

lmtools.exe, a graphical frontend for the licensing tools, which can also be found at the Flexera download page, is an alternative to lmutil on Windows. If you prefer lmtools, here is some help:
Start lmtools and press the "hostID" Button. The 2nd last line is a single hex number - that's the hostID to be specified in the field "Your FLEXnet hostID" above. However, if that field is 0 or ffffffffffff, or if you are unsure, please copy&paste all the output into the field "General comments" above. The best way to do Copy&Paste probably is: Use the "Save Text" button to save the output into a file and then use a text editor (e.g. MS Word) to open that file and then use the text editor's "Copy&Paste".
