Common FLEXnet license problems

"lmhostid returns hostid 000000000000" / Network interfaces named em1, em2 etc.
Integrated network interfaces are named em1, em2 etc. on CentOS 6 and RedHat 6. These names are not supported by FlexNet.
To change em1 to eth0 supported by FlexNet do the following:
Make a backup of the file /etc/grub.conf
Edit /etc/grub.conf and add the line biosdevname=0 to the kernel boot arguments
Rename /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-em1 to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and change DEVICE="em1" to DEVICE="eth0"
Delete /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
Reboot the computer
Error message "Cannot connect to license server system (-15,570:113 No route to host)"
Check that the hostname in the licensefile is also listed in the /etc/hosts file.
Try to change the hostname in the licensefile to localhost and add the line localhost in the /etc/hosts file. It is also possible to get a hint of what is wrong by using the command /usr/sbin/ping hostname.
