Failed to acquire a license

I have installed a stand alone Vault Pro 2012 Server on Server 2008 R2 with 5 licenses (all correctly appended into the LIC file).  IPV6 is not enabled.  I even made a host file with server name and IPV4 address on the server and client.

 

I configured everything in LMTOOLS per direction.  I only have ONE client trying to login - and I get the "Failed to acquire a license" error.  The end user OS is Win 7 Pro 64 bit.  The Vault sees the server and the Vault, but won't give out a license.

 

Any suggestions to remedy this would be greatly appreciated!!

Yes - but we just found the solution.  We found an old post regading the LICPATH.  Removed the server name (huh???) and replaced it with 127.0.0.1.  Makes absolutely no sense.  I have spent 2 days trying to figure this thing out.  So - to all of you that think this solution will never work - try it anyway!!!

Dumb question, but did you check that the lisense server was started and running?
