A license can in several ways become damaged. Use the License Administrator to repair a damaged network license on the License Server where the damaged license is located. Local licenses cannot be repaired. Instead you have to remove the damaged local licenses and reactivate the licenses from new license files.
Licenses can be damaged by the following actions:
Copying licenses from one system to another. This is an illegal action.
Restoring a License Server backup.
Adjusting the system clock to an earlier time.
Restoring the system to correct system problems or roll back changes.
Changing the Enterprise Server, License Server or WorkStation hardware component.
Repairing a network license requires access to the Internet.
You are only allowed to repair a license four times a year.
All repair actions are registered by the Activation Server and are traceable.
