Continuous Re-activation Loop "Could Not Get Information From the Server Error"

This article describes how to resolve the error "Could Not Get Information From the Server" when you have recently upgraded SOLIDWORKS or migrated to a different server and are trying to activate the SolidNetwork License Manager(SNL).

This article specifically addresses the error found in the lmgrd.log log file:

"SW_D exited with status 32 (Exited because another server was running)"

Check The Log File

  1. To check the SolidNetwork License Manager logs, open the SolidNetwork License Manager Server (SNL)> Click on the Server Administration tab> click 'View Log'. If you do not have the Server Administration tab, you are using the client version of the SNL Manager or are on the wrong computer.
