My problem is the CFD 2013 can not find the license server. After installation, It automatically generated this LICPATH.LIC where it puts the (xxxx) server name I keyed in. I wonder if you still need to configure something on the .LIC in order to find the server. I have configured the license using LMTOOLS as per http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?si
Looks like the way CFD2013 looking for the server name is totally different approach compared to the CFD2011. I tried running our CFD2011 and it can run using the same server name.Anyone can share some experience and info how I can fix this problem.
You cannot configure the NLM with the LICPATH.LIC file. This is not a valid license file. It is simply a pointer file that directs the client to the NLM server for a license. You need to obtain the license from Autodesk or your Reseller and configure it properly.
For a Quick-Start Guide on configuring the Autodesk License Manager, please see my post for further information:

You will need to provide your serial number and ethernet ID of the new license server.
