How to Get the Host ID

The Host ID is really just the Ethernet address, also called the MAC address. If your computer does not have an ethernet card, you can use the Disk Volume Serial Number. If you need to use the disk volume serial number, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for assistance. (The disk volume serial number is not supported on Linux.)

On Linux, in the License Manager directory, run lmhostid.

On Windows, do any one of the following:

  • Run the License Manager utility. The Host ID is on the Request License tab.
  • In the LicenseManager directory, run lmhostid.bat.
  • Run lmtools.exe and on the System Settings tab, get the value in the Ethernet Address field.

How to Get the Dongle ID

The Dongle ID is printed on the dongle package. It is a string that begins with "9". (It is not the Flexnet ID.) If you do not have the package, to get the dongle ID:

  1. Insert the dongle in your computer.
  2. In a command window, CD to the License Manager directory.
  3. Run:
      lmhostid.exe -flexid

To troubleshoot the dongle installation, please refer to MAKLicenseManagement.pdf.
