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
