New IP address on deployed workstation

Scenario
On a workstation in one of our satellite offices; Land Development R2 had
been deployed and functioning for quite some time. Recently, Land
Development has failed to initialize, with the error License check failure;
although AutoCAD 2000 has been able to tag a license and run. This instance
has coincided with the changing of the IP address on that particular
machine. Do I need to un-install and re-install Land Development on this
workstation since the IP address has changed? Thanks for your response.

LDD doesn't care what the ip addr. of the machine is. The only thing that matters is that
the machine be able to contact the license server by host name and vice versa.

I don't know if the machine was previously in the same subnet as the adlm server but for
some reason now it cannot contact it or the adlm cannot send the LLD license back to the
client. Could be a default gateway problem. It does seem somewhat strange that a2k can
run and LLD can't. Try running a2k and then LDD immediately following. If that doesn't
work then I'd look at the acadserver variable associated with the ldd installation.

You should not need to un-install re-install ldd2 for it to work correctly on the client.

You didn't change the ip addr. on the aldm server did you?
