If you haven't already done so, you should take a look at the wiki info:

I need more information about what exactly you are trying to achieve.
Normally you should just specify the LM_LICENSE_FILE env variable, or
the same thing within the config file. The queries are bundled per
server and the queries are threaded.

With the current version (1.44 I think), there is a slight bug with the
server grouping. I was too aggressive about bundling the names and
simply stripped off the domain-name: ie, serv1.domain.name and serv1
would get lumped together.  This turns out to be a really bad idea if
you have the several servers and used the IP address.  I think there
must be a patch floating about the list (several months ago), but it's
patched in my personal version - which will be released as soon as I get
6.2 installed and fully tested.
