Workstations show the license server system as “Server name”or “Distributed.”

I recently upgraded servers and successfully transferred the Server license for one of my clients. They are pulling licensing successfully but are wondering why some of the client pcs show the network license entry as the actual server name and on some of the other client machines it shows up as 'distributed'. Would anyone have an explanation as to why this occurs.

It shouldn't matter, since a Distributed system is techically a group of single systems.  Is it possible that the client machines have the ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE system variable set?

Thanks Travis  - I do believe some of the client machines have the ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE system variable set which may explain the variance in names. Thanks for the response and explanation.
