We are running SolidNetWork License Administrator on Windows Server 2003 SP2. Every few weeks we get the error message below. The clients cant find the license server. After i do a reread of the license file it works fine for another few weeks.

12:15:16 (SW_D) Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file:
12:15:16 (SW_D) E:\SolidWorks\LICMAN\licenses\sw_d.lic
