license server upgrade to 811 not work


pan tianming (4765444) | asked Apr 20 '12, 5:40 a.m.
We are using RAM 7202, currently it using license server 7.0 is no problem.
We plan to upgrade to RAM 7511, so upgrade license server to 811 first, but it always report below error after upgrade finish:

Users of XXX1 : NOT LICENSED
Users of XXX2 : NOT LICENSED
Users of XXX3 : NOT LICENSED
The 3 license components are not being served.
