Hi I'm not really a Linux guy, but I take it you're following the License Server install guide? From what I can see, it's using RHEL, no idea if there are any Linux disrto limitations, but I wouldn't have thought so. Regards Ben

Right ... I've had a play with this and I've managed to make it work up to the point where I now need to allocate a license. No point in doing that, as there's no need and I'm sure it will work. As said, I'm not a Linux guy, but my working install is as follows: Also using CentOS 7. When installing I've selected "Server with GUI" and "Java Platform". If you're good with Linux, you probably won't want a GUI. When the install completes, install the hypervisor tools (I'm using ESXi, so I've installed VMTools). Following the NVIDIA License Server install guide, but there are a couple of file name changes so I've detailed exactly what I've typed below. The install guide is located in the Windows License Server .zip file, not the Linux. Open Terminal: Validating the Java Run-time install (selected when installing CentOS): [b]java -version[/b] Install Tomcat & WebApps: [b]sudo yum install tomcat tomcat-webapps[/b] Enable Tomcat service for automatic start: [b]sudo systemctl enable tomcat.service[/b] Start Tomcat Service: [b]sudo systemctl start tomcat.service[/b] Check to make sure Tomcat is running: [b]http://localhost:8080[/b] Download Linux License Server from NVIDIA: https://nvidia.flexnetoperations.com Extract it: [b]tar xfz NVIDIA-ls-linux-2015.12-0001.tgz[/b] Install it: [b]sudo ./setup.bin[/b] Accept the default, enable the management port - Finish Let me know how you get on Regards Ben

Check to make sure Tomcat is running: http://localhost:8080

Download Linux License Server from NVIDIA: https://nvidia.flexnetoperations.com

Extract it: tar xfz NVIDIA-ls-linux-2015.12-0001.tgz

Install it: sudo ./setup.bin

Accept the default, enable the management port - Finish

I think my mistake was that I installed the Java rpm from Oracle.
