lc_flexinit failed: 2

I have installed FlexNet Publisher under openSUSE 11.2 and am running through the demos as per "Getting Started with File-based Licensing". I can start the license server administrator and connect to the web interface just fine. Yet when i try to run lmflex, it fails with:

lc_flexinit failed: 2

I've hunted around the web and around this forum, but I haven't located a similar problem. I did find out that err 2 means "Unable to load activation library". What might be wrong?

Additional info

I deleted my FlexNet Publisher installation and started from scratch, so all I have now are the files from the distribution.

lmflex produces the error "lc_flexinit failed: 2" even for the unserved case.

My DEMO_LICENSE_FILE variable is set to the platform directory, and lmdiag sees it okay. To be clear, I am *not* running the license server right now.

Below is the output from lmdiag. Has anyone seen this before?

Solved

The fix is to set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to your platform directory.

See KB
Q112640: INFO: Error: lc_flexinit failed: 131072
and
Q200786: Setting up Trusted Storage on Linux and Unix

csh: setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /my/platform/dir

sh, bash: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/my/platform/dir
