FLEXnet Licensing error:-1,359. System Error: 2 “No such file or directory”

This FLEXLM_DIAGNOSTIC error indicates that the @ symbol is missing. For example, you will see this error if setenv.bat has this:

set _ADSK_LicServers=mtl-licserver

instead of this;

set _ADSK_LicServers=@mtl-licserver

When there is no @ symbol, “mtl-licserver” is interpreted as a file path, not as the name of a computer. Softimage 7.5 used this syntax to specify that the file C:\Softimage\Softimage_7.5_x64\adlm\licenses\Autodesk.lic contained the location of the license server.

Here’s the actual FLEXLM_DIAGNOSTIC message. Notice how it lists “Filename” and “License path”, which indicate that Softimage is trying to find a file.

Firewall, ports, and licensing

Autodesk licensing uses the ports 2080 and 27000-27009, so check that your firewall does not block these ports. Check the firewalls both on the workstations and on the license server.

If 2080 is blocked, you’ll see this error in the FLEXLM_DIAGNOSTICS output:

FLEXnet Licensing error:-15,570. System Error: 10035 “WinSock: Operation would block”
