Flexnet License error -97,121

6 or more users suddenly could not obtain a license for AutoCAD today. 

To my knowledge nothing had changed on the server or with the license file to cause this.


I checked the Hostname and ethernet address and they match what is in the license file.

I upgraded to the 11.11 version of FlexNet.


Not sure where else I should be looking.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Could you share your license file in a private message?

I suspect the 11.11 version of FlexLM.  Especially if you are using Server 2008 R2 or newer. 


Try the 11.7 adskflex.exe vendor daemon file that I attached in a follow-up message in this thread:
