Accidentally changed hostid

Version 1

    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
