FlexNet (lmgrd) can be installed and is supported on virtual servers unless the software publisher ask you to utilize a baremetal hostid.
Does SolidWorks support running the Flexlm based SolidNetWork license on a virtual server?
AFAIK it will support SNL will support VM's as now there is no need of a physical dongle and the network manager is activated using internet or e-mail.
Try it... Let us know how it works. Would only take a couple minutes to test out.
It's in French but it seems to be working correctly in a VM.
