Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file

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!
