I want to replace my old 10.2.2 license server running on a old XP with 10.3.1 License Server running on a new server running Windows Server 2012R2. On the Server 2012, the License Server Administer shows that the provision file was authorized and my license are available, service is started. Desktop 10.3.1 locally on the Server machine gets served a license successfully. But on my network, client PCs running 10.3.1 and 10.2 can't get a license but they can find the license server host on a network browse. I used Windows Firewall with Advanced Security on the LM host to open 27000-27009 inbound and outbound, my Service.txt file for License 10.3 looks like it is using 27000:
SERVER this_host ANY 27000
FEATURE ACT ARCGIS 1 permanent 1 vendor_info=7KNJDRHFHBK4CFDMJ214 SIGN="052E ABFC 32DD \
2473 DEFD E276 4BF3 E0DB 87EB 2203 5A30 C014 19A1 C35E 2154 \

Client PCs just get the old "'YourCrappyHost' does not have a valid License Manager." message, but somewhat slower after I messed with the firewall.
I'm out of tricks. How do I fix this?
Take a look at the log file in the license server directory. What is it showing? I found that a recent patch from Microsoft invalidated my MachineID used in my license file. This took my service down.
