C4D2A licensing problem after update

Hi there,


We've recently updated C4D2A on our R19 Cinema4D running on a Mac (Yosemite). We've noticed that the licensing mechanism has changed - previously we used the Autodesk NLM since we had a permanent license.


The new Arnold Licensing Manager has the following message pop-up:

Server list is currently overridden by the ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE environment variable. Please edit the environment variable if you want to make changes.


We tried unsetting the variable, to no avail. We've also downloaded a new license file from Autodesk and tried to install that, but no luck there neither. Attached is the Diagnostics file.


Many thanks!!

Alb

Thanks for the swift reply. The download for ARNOL_2020 doesn't seem to be on Autodesk just yet, so I've opted to roll back to C4D2A 2.6 for now.


However, the licensing is still giving me problems - Diagnostics now show 'Error getting status: Cannot connect to license server system. (-15,570:36 "Operation now in progress")', with the ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE set as @opennet-32-70.uhnres.utoronto.ca


All very weird since it was all properly functioning a month ago...


Thanks for your help.

First, I would check that the license server is running.

And does lmutil lmstat -a work when you run it on the license server machine ?

ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE should be just

@opennet-32-70.uhnres.utoronto.ca

Right now, the licensing cannot connect to the server:

Cannot connect to license server system. (-15,570:65 "No route to host")


You do need an ARNOL_2020 license for Arnold 6


You don't need to use the Arnold License Manager if ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE is already set correctly.

But if you unset ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE, you do need to restart the host application.
