Issues with FlexLM network licencing.
I'm trying to set up a network licence for Maya on our school system.
Our previous server crashed, so we already had Maya installed and it was pointing to the previous server which is not currently working.
The new licence server seems to be working. It says the server is running and there are licences available. I'm able to ping the server and I can access files off it through the network without issue.
I am however unable to load it on the client PCs, I keep getting an error that the FLEXnet licence manager can't connect to the server.
Let's assume my server is called "myserver"
I have tried the following:
Does anybody have any other suggestion?
We haven't tried a clean Maya install as we don't have the install disk :(

You need to reinstall maya and direct it to the new license server during installation. It's stupid, but that's the easiest or maybe even only way I know of. Surely there's a way to change it in the registry or a linux/mac config file, but I don't know of it.
it must be a really really old version of maya if it requires an install disc. Autodesk's subscription support is all download based and has had maya available since version 2008
Even their regular website support has updated software with service packs:
