Fatal error: security system on novell network

We have 2 novell servers and the main one loads adskelmd for our clients to be able to log to autocad R14. We upgraded our other server from Novell 4.10 to Novell 5 and since that upgrade, our computers are unable to use autocad. I don't know if it is related though.

The error message is "Fatal Error: security system (hardware lock or network license) is not functioning or is improperly installed". The adskelmd seems to be working perfectly and nothing has changed on the workstations. The only thing that is weird, is that it doesn't recognize the host. For example:
00-May-16 09:12:49: Host "pc-88" unknown.
00-May-16 09:12:49: Authorization failure; key \ADLM\KEY/140.LIC only valid for: pc-88.

Is this related to the upgrade, to the network, to the computers or the license?

You need to reauthorize AdLM. Generate a new server code then contact your
dealer to obtain a new network authorization code. Instructions for this
process can be found at
