If  you accidentally change the hostid in the SERVER line of the  license  file (third field), you will see the following in your license  server  debug log file:


17:23:47 (mgcld) Invalid license key (inconsistent authentication code)


On Windows, use lmtools to verify the correct hostid:


Start> Run> Mentor Graphics Licensing> lmtools
Systems Settings tab
Ethernet address or FLEXID fields


On Unix/Linux:


Run lmhostid
