    Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file

    bdenig

      Currently, our Windows floating license server (SERVERA) is using a USB dongle and FlexLM v11.11.1.1:

       

      >>

      SERVER SERVERA FLEXID=9-72bec70f 7418

      DAEMON mgcld C:\MentorGraphics\Licensing\mgcld.exe

      <<

       

      I have another Windows floating license server (SERVERB) in which I would like to move the USB dongle to.  The correct USB dongle drivers are installed and the system is using FlexLM v11.13.1.2.  I changed the license header to the following:

       

      >>

      SERVER SERVERB FLEXID=9-72bec70f 1717

      DAEMON mgcld C:\MentorGraphics\Licensing\mgcld.exe

      <<

       

      However, the license does not start and I get this error in the log file:

       

      >>

      13:19:48 (mgcld) Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file:

      13:19:48 (mgcld) C:\MentorGraphics\Licensing\License\License.dat

      13:19:48 (mgcld) SERVER line says FLEXID=9-72bec70f, hostid is (Can't get hostid of type 15 [])

      13:19:48 (mgcld) Invalid hostid on SERVER line

      Thoughts?  Thank you!
