Do You have “ANSYS Academic Research LS-DYNA” product?
If not, “Academic Multiphysics Campus licenses for Teaching and Research” don’t support LS-DYNA solver.

To enable LST LS-DYNA to run with Ansys licensing, set LSTC_FILE to ansys or ANSYS, then set ANSYSLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to 1055@servername (servername of License server.) Also the licensingclient folder (which contains ansyscl) need to place in same directory as LST LS-DYNA executable file.
I recommend installing version 2022 R2 Service Pack 2
