The IBM Rational License key server v8.1.3 (v11.10) was released on July 2nd 2012 , which means now you can migrate to license server v8.1.3 if you have deployed any older version of license server. You can refer below tech note to know the system requirements of license server v8.1.3
Scenario B: Migration of Telelogic License server 2.x to 8.1.3
Scenario C : Migration of Rational License server 8.1.x to 8.1.3
Note: If you move the license server to a new host , you may need to rehost the license file. You have to return the license file created for the old license server on Rational License Key center website and regenerate the new license file using the host details of the new server.

If we look around, there are couple of applications now a days which can make our lives easier and help us in our day-to-day activities, There are “n” number of applications, software, tools, utilities, and much more. Let's discuss these tools which could actually help people diagnosing issues related to licensing, We will discuss a few basic components and then dig deeper into the errors and the tips and tricks on how they can be resolved.
NOTE: On Windows Vista run lmtools utility as an administrator.
Once the paths are defined we can save the services using “save service” tab ( right top corner ).
It's always recommended to Enable 'Use Services'; 'Start Server at Power Up', In order to maximize the output.
Service which needs to be started should be selected “(Lmgrd)” in this case, If it is not the case, go to “config services” tab, select the service to be used, and then return to “Start/Stop/Re-read tab.
Functional Check if the Server is Running:
3. Shows the version of FLEXlm, and indicates the state of the license manager if started or not.
If you see the screen above (and the output) it will show the status of the license server (it started detecting lmgrd process) So the “License Server Status : 27000@CYPRES”
License file(s) on CYPRES: E:\FlexLM\License (This is the physical path of the license file),
Proceeding further we have the version of the License Server (License Server UP (MASTER) v10.1).
Then it will show that the Vendor daemon status and Feature usage information (If the licenses are issued and how many are in use), Please see the output below,
Vendor daemon status (on CYPRES):
ibmratl: UP v10.1
Feature usage info: How many licenses are served/issued from the server and how many in use,
Users of Distributor: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
Users of Presenter: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
Users of DOORS: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
Users of DRL: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
If there is an issue with the License server or with License file it will throw an error and will not have the feature usage info as license issued.
FLEXlm Error -97 rational daemon process suddenly locks up:

For a Rational License server ( version v 8.1.2 or above ) to work properly using IPv6 addresses, all systems in an enterprise (including the network hardware and software) must be configured properly to support communication using IPv6 addresses.
Before testing or deploying a Rational Common Licensing-supported or -based application that supports IPv6 or IPv4/IPv6 dual communication, make sure that all systems on the network can communicate successfully. If the license server will run under any of the following operating systems, it can communicate with clients using either IPv4 or IPv6 (as long as the network is configured properly).
Because these operating systems support dual-layer communication, both IPv4 and IPv6 enabled clients can communicate with an IPv6 license server. Moreover, IPv6 clients can communicate with an IPv4 license server using the IPv4 address, as seen below:
In the case of a license server hosted on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 operating systems, there are certain drawbacks because of limited dual-layer support on these operating systems.
