Floating License Server Help

Address already in use

Issue

Address already in use error on license server start for ZIP archive distribution.

* FAILED ServerConnector@2bdd8798{HTTP/1.1}{0.0.0.0:8080}: java.net.BindException: Address already in use

Solution

Check if there is other software running on the same host and port and stop the software to make the host and the port available for usage by Floating License Server. If it is not possible re-configure FLS to use another port as follows:

  1. Stop FLS
  2. Configure FLS to use another port:

    <fls_home>/bin/license-server.sh configure \ --port <another port>
    <fls_home>\bin\license-server.bat configure \ --listen-port <another port>
  3. Start FLS
