If you’re doing technical support like me, you gotta love things like kick -licensecheck. I wish we’d had something like this at Softimage. This license check will tell you:
- Whether you can connect to a license server
- What licenses are available
- What are the licensing environment variable settings
In this example, I’m running Maya and the license server on the same computer. That’s why none of the environment variables are set, but the licensecheck still shows that there’s a license available. By default, Arnold will connect to 5053@localhost to get a license.
