When an Ansys license is issued, it's keyed to a specific computer based on a hardware ID unique to that computer. This prevents the license from being installed on other computers and protects against unauthorized use of the license. If you need to move the Ansys License Manager to a different machine, you must first perform a "license server change". This process will re-key your existing licensed products to the new computer and issue a new license file, which can then be installed on the new computer.
