License Reporting / LMUTIL problem

Question asked by Raymond Goldstein on Feb 23, 2015

I am using X-Formation License Statistics to track and report usage in Solidworks.  After a recent upgrade to Solidworks Solidnetwork License Manager (, we are unable to pull info from the Solidworks NLM.  X-Formation technical support says their program must be able to get output from lmutil lmdiag -n -c port@server_name.


When I run this command either from the reporting server, or even locally on the Solidworks NLM itself, I get no output as follows:


C:\Program Files (x86)\SolidWorks Corp\SolidNetWork License Manager\utils> lmutil lmdiag -n -c 25734@sw_nlm1

lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2013 Flexera Software LLC. All Rights Reserved.

License file: 25734@sw_nlm1


This works fine on every other FlexLM based server (Autodesk, PTC, National Instuments), but not this one.  I know the Solidworks NLM is working fine because users are pulling licenses.  I just cannot run any usage reports if LMUTIL is not reporting back any information.


Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you
