lmutil is the first among FLEXlm license manager utilities. FLEXlm is the network license manager used by Autodesk to control the use of their software products.
If you are a UNIX systems administrator or user, it is likely that one or more of the products on your network is licensed by FLEXlm. Details about installing with FLEXlm are in your Installation Notes.
The Alias installation program creates a FLEXlm directory, which contains a FLEXlm control panel and its required DLL, plus a number of related utilities
sgiawd (if you install the licensing component of the software)
lmgrd.exe (if you install the licensing component of the software)
While you do not call all the utilities directly, they are needed and must not be deleted.
