Ansys Employee

The workaround works only if the LM recognizes both of the hostID.

If you only use the second file (backup the main ansyslmd.lic somewhere else), does it work ? If not, the LM doesn't recognize the hostID in this file and it must be regenerated with the hostID that LM can 'see'. You can check this in ANSYS License Management Center -> Get System HostID.
