I'm trying to install a License Server for a Ansys 14.5 program. I run the license server install with the license location parameter, as:

./INSTALL.LM -silent -licfilepath my_licfile.txt 

And it goes ok, without showing errors or warnings, but when I try to start the license server daemon, with:

/usr/ansys_inc/shared_files/licensing/init_ansysli start

It complains that license file doesn't exist:

11:28  INFO    ANSYSLI_CMD=/usr/ansys_inc/shared_files/licensing/linx64/ansysli_server
11:28  INFO    ANSYSLI_INITIALIZATION_FILE=No initialization file found.
11:28  INFO    ANSYSLI_PRODORD_FILE='/usr/ansys_inc/shared_files/licensing/prodord/ansysli.prodord.xml'
11:28  ERROR   Invalid FLEXlm license file . Exiting.

The linux that I'm using is a server without desktop installed, so I can use the anslic_admin tool.
