Cant use/obtain the license due to license is still in use although no client is accessing the Server. 

Also below is some words seen in LMTools that shows the 2 PCs having the word “linger” which means borrowed. 

Report Log from LMTools:

Try borrow from Wcheng pc, then return 5 min later.


Ty re-read lic file From the LM.


Try rebooting the license server. Sometimes fixes issues that have no apparent reason.
