      i4tv - verify that LicensePower/iFOR License Servers are working

      i4tv [-n hostname | -z | -v] [-h | -usage | -version]

      The i4tv tool can be used after the license servers have been started
      to verify that that they are running properly.  The i4tv program
      resides in the /opt/ifor/ls/bin directory.  A message describing a
      completed license transaction and a list of all license servers will
      be displayed.  Once a license server has been configured using
      i4config, the i4tv tool is used to quickly verify the status of the
      license server i4lmd.

      -n hostname    The -n option is used to check that the specified
		     machine is running a license server.  It returns 0 if
		     the hostname is running i4lmd and it returns 1 if the
		     hostname is not running i4lmd.

      -z	     The -z option turns on RPC tracing messages, which can
		     be used to diagnose problems.

      -v	     Displays progress messages during the license request

      -h	     Displays command usage information (same as -usage).

      -usage	     Displays command usage information (same as -h).

      -version	     Displays command version information.

      If you can run i4tv successfully but are still having a problem with a
      licensed product, the problem is probably with the licenses, or
      possibly with the product itself: in this case, talk to the vendor of
      the licensed software product.

      If you can not run i4tv successfully or it takes more than 10 seconds
      to retrieve a license, verify that glbd and i4lmd are running. Use the
      utility lb_admin to clean the database.  Answer YES to all database
      entries that do not respond. If you receive one of the error messages
      listed below, use the explanation of the error to fix the problem.
      Then try running i4tv again.

      If you can not run i4tv successfully and receive an error that's not
      listed below, it means there is a problem with the software on which
      LicensePower/iFOR ARK is layered (for example, TCP), or a hardware
