I don't know if i am on the good forum !
i would like to know how many licences are used on my license server ?


Actually , I don't know if there's 1 2 or 3 free licenses on my server.


thanks for the support

In the NX install tree should be a folder \UGFLEXLM\

In there is lmutil.exe

This has a lot of options to list usage.

You should be able to fix docs for this on the web, from Siemens, or just "lmutil /?"


There is also LMtools.exe, I'm less sure how to use this if your PC isn't the license server.

Hi mkn,


  1. Go to LMTOOLS.
  2. In the Service/License tab File choose Configuration Using License File and browse your license.
  3. Go to the Server Status tab.
  4. Click Perform Status Inquiry.
  5. Read the feature usage info you can see there the license count and the license in used.

Hope this helps.

I have responded to this request in other threads before, -excuse if i repeat myself :-)


I have created a "bat" file which when executed will do all the stuff that's difficult to remember I use this quite frequently to check who has the advanced assemblies license etc....


The .bat file looks like this inside :  ( I doubt that i can upload it. .bat files are even difficult to email.)




lmutil lmstat -c 28000@licenseservername -a > c:\temp\licenses-in-use.txt
Notepad c:\temp\licenses-in-use.txt
Del c:\temp\licenses-in-use.txt



When the .bat file is doubleclicked, it will do the "lmutil lmstat -c" to the license server and send the report into a temporary textfile. 

 Then the same textfile is opened in notepad. ( notepad provides better readability etc than the DOS prompt)

When the notepad is closed, the textfile is deleted.

Re: license NX used


Hello Nkn, 


If you are working with only one License Server and less than 50 users there is OpenLM Server light version which is free of charge.

Find it at:


Also, you can take the debug log from the License Server and use the Alllicenseparser as described here. 

By the way, when adding a plus in "LMUTILS utility - Config Services - Path to debug log file" the debug log will not be overwritten each time you restart the License Server.


It should look like:  +C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager\adskflex.log

Not the the path might be differen in your environment. 

Re: license NX used



if you don't have access to the server, you can create a .bat file like this:

C:\Siemens\NX11\UGFLEXLM\lmutil.exe lmstat -a -c 28000@server_name > C:\Users\username\Desktop\NX-license.log

Thank you...
