lmreread - tells the license daemon to reread the license file
lmreread [ -c license_file ] [ daemon ]
lmreread allows the system administrator to tell the license daemon to
reread the license file. This can be useful if the data in the license
file has changed; the new data can be loaded into the license daemon
without shutting down and restarting it.
lmreread uses the license file from the command line (or the default
file, if none specified) only to find the license daemon to send it the
command to reread the license file. The license daemon will always
reread the original file that it loaded. If you need to change the path
to the license file read by the license daemon, then you must shut down
the daemon and restart it with that new license file path.
You can not use lmreread if the SERVER node names or port numbers have
been changed in the license file. In this case, you must shut down the
daemon and restart it in order for those changes to take effect.
lmreread does not change any option information specified in an options
file. If the new license file specifies a different options file, that
information is ignored. If you need to reread the options file, you must
shut down the daemon and restart it.
Use the specified license_file. If this switch is not
specified, lmreread looks for the environment variable
LM_LICENSE_FILE. If that environment variable is not set,
lmreread looks for the file
daemon will only perform reread on one daemon. This switch is
recommended where a license file includes more than one daemon.
IRIX systems typically install licenses in /var/flexlm/license.dat, not
