sp00n,

Flex does not need to run as root:

Somewhere on their webpage they have some scripts, I crafted some myself, and
didn't see a need to run a license manager as root.

In the following script note the use of 'su daemon -c' and relocating the
log file to somewhere more sensible. (-l blah)

Here is the script:

#!/bin/sh
#
# quircky script to start license gumbo

case "$1" in
'start')
        if [ -x /tools/licenses/bin/lmgrd ] ; then
                su daemon -c "umask 022; /tools/licenses/bin/lmgrd -c /tools/licenses/keys/license.dat -l 
/tools/licenses/logs/flexlm.log" &
                echo "Starting FLEXlm license service."
        fi
        ;;
'stop')
        if [ -x /tools/licenses/bin/lmutil ] ; then
                echo "y" | /tools/licenses/bin/lmutil lmdown -c /tools/licenses/keys/license.dat -l 
/tools/licenses/logs/flexlm.log &
                echo "Stopped FLEXlm license service."
        fi
        ;;
'restart')
        if [ -x /tools/licenses/bin/lmutil ] ; then
                echo "y" | /tools/licenses/bin/lmutil lmreread -c /tools/licenses/keys/license.dat -l 
/tools/licenses/logs/flexlm.log &
                echo "Restarted FLEXlm license service."
        fi
        ;;
'status')
        if [ -x /tools/licenses/bin/lmutil ] ; then
                /tools/licenses/bin/lmutil lmstat -c /tools/licenses/keys/license.dat
                echo "Status displayed."
        fi

                /tools/licenses/bin/lmutil hostid -c /tools/licenses/keys/license.dat
                echo "Hostid returned."
        fi
