 NAME
      i4lmd - starts the license server on a local node

 SYNOPSIS
      i4lmd [-s[ecure]] [-l[ogname]] [-v[erbose]] [-z[debugging]] [-n[o]
	   event_types] [-c[oldstart]]

 DESCRIPTION
      The i4lmd command starts a license server on the local node. There is
      no graphic interface for this command, the shell script i4config is
      used to configure the license server.  License servers should not be
      run manually.

      A printable on-line administration guide is also available. (See the
      FILES section below.)

      NOTE: Please refer to the release notes and i4config for information
      on how to automate the start-up of i4lmd on your specific platform.

    Options
      -s	     Secure mode. A LicensePower/iFOR license server running
		     in secure mode will only permit modifications to its
		     database from tools run locally (on the same node).
		     Tools running on remote node are not permitted to
		     modify the database.

      -l log_name    Redirects license server log entries to a file and
		     location other than the default
		     (/opt/ifor/ls/conf/logdb*).  The alternate log file
		     specification (filename) must be fully qualified
		     starting from the root directory (/).

      -v verbose     The verbose flag should only be used by administrators
		     the event of a server failure.  This command allows the
		     administrator to review license calls and activity from
		     the client programs. The -v option is used in
		     conjunction with -z.

      -z debugging   The debugging flag allows the administrator to review
		     all rpc communication between the clients and the
		     server. The -z option is used in conjunction with -v.

      -no	     Turns off logging of the events specified in
		     event_list.  Any combination of events is valid, but
		     items in the list of events must not be separated by
		     spaces or other characters. Following are the event
		     types that you may specify:

		     l	  License-grant and license-release events.

		     c	  License checkin events. (Licensed products usually
			  check in with the license server at regular
			  intervals while a user is using the product).

		     w	  Waiting events: these include wait events (a user
			  was waiting for a license), waitgrant events (a
			  user was waiting for and then was granted a
			  license), and waitremove events (a user was
			  waiting for a license and then asked to be removed
			  from the queues before a license was granted).

		     v	  Vendor events: a vendor was added, renamed or
			  deleted.

		     p	  Product events: a product was added, renamed, or
			  deleted.

		     e	  Error events.

		     t	  License timeout events.  (When a licensed product
			  fails to check in with the license server, it may
			  stop running after it "times out." The vendor of
			  the product sets the timeout interval, which is
			  how long a product may run after it has lost
			  contact with the license server).

		     m	  Message events.

		     s	  License server start/stop events.

      -c	     This option will delete all transactions records from
		     the database and subsequently that cache during server
		     startup.

 EXAMPLES
      Start a license server; do not log checkin, vendor, product, timeout,
      or message events:

	   i4lmd -no cvptm

      Start a license server, deleting all transactions from the database:

	   i4lmd -c

      Start a license server, overriding the default log file:

	   i4lmd -l /logs/license_server_log
