Pro/ENGINEER Does Not Run On Computers With Multiple
At the end of the PTC FLEXlm installation, lmgrd.exe starts, however
ptc_d.exe fails to start. A shutdown and restart of FLEXlm exhibits
the same behavior.
Examination of the ptclmgrd.log file shows the following line of information:
"PTC_HOSTID ##-##-##-##-##-## EXPECTED. GOT PTC_HOSTID= )."
Meaning that no PTC_HOSTID (cpu_id) was found when attempting to startup the
server, specifically the ptc_d.exe daemon.
See Resolution below.
The inability to find a cpu_id is caused by the order of the network card installation.
To verify that this is the case run "regedit" by selecting the START
button, Run, enter "regedit", hit OK. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->Software->Microsoft->WindowsNT->Current_version->Network_Cards,
double click on "1".
If there is no "1" folder the folder associated with the ethernet
card must be renamed so it is first in the list or "1" so that
ptc_d.exe recognizes the correct CPU_ID. For instructions on how to reorder
or rename the folder, contact a system
administrator, your hardware vendor or Technical Support.
