To All ArcGIS Server v10.1 Users:

When I try to use ArcGIS Server Manager for the first time I get the following error after the initial setup pages:
Failed to create the site. The machine does not have a valid license. Please authorize ArcGIS Server by clicking Start > Programs > ArcGIS > Software Authorization

I had already authorized the software over the internet with ESRI, so I am confused as to why I am getting this error message.

Any help or feedback to solve this issue is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
