Summary

Only specific vendor (not entire license server) will shutdown if "-vendor" option is provided with lmdown

Question

Only specific vendor (not entire license server) will shutdown if "-vendor" option is provided with lmdown.

Answer

It is clearly mentioned in the help page for 'lmdown' that

[-vendor vendor_daemon] Shut down only this vendor daemon;
lmgrd continues running.

This KB is to reiterate that the below commands also will not be able to shutdown the entire server:

-c counted.lic -vendor <vendor_name>
-c counted.lic -vendor <vendor_name> -force

Only the vendor daemon in question will shut down.
