Why do I see the message: Warning: License Server is not running. Please start the XL_LCSRV/LICSRV subsystem.

Product: Presto Type: Frequently Asked Question

As of Presto 8.1 we've introduced a new subsystem which will start automatically as part of the Install. This subsystem is XL_LCSRV/LICSRV and it's purpose in the future will be to enforce License Seat limits in Presto. 

The actual enforcement of seat counts won't actually come into effect until likely release 8.4.   It has been introduced early so administrators can get used to it and not be inconvenienced down the road when enforcement is activated.  It will give you a chance to gauge your usage and make sure that your seat license satisfies your needs.  At release 8.2 we hope to have a green screen command to provide your seat count.  At 8.3 you should see an Administrator Interface for the license server.  At release 8.4 we plan to enforce seat counts.

At this time only administrators using the Presto Development tool will see either of two messages. 

  1. Message one will tell you if the subsystem XL_LCSRV/LICSRV is not started. 
  2. Message two will tell you if you are over your seat count.  (Note that one seat is one user.  Even if a user has 4 sessions open, it counts as 1 seat.)

To start the subsystem use the following command:


It is a very good idea to add this to your start up CL along with the STRSBS for Exodus (STRSBS XL_EX55/EXODUS55).
