The following are similar error messages that relate to this same issue:
"The ArcGIS Server Administrator has detected that your licenses have become untrusted. This can occur when a machine hardware configuration has changed or licenses have been restored from a backup. Please click the 'Repair' button below to repair your untrusted licenses."

Solution 1: Repair Trusted Storage

If the Trusted Storage model becomes untrusted, a warning is received when launching ArcGIS Administrator or ArcGIS License Manager that the trusted storage is in need of a repair.
The Trusted Storage repair can be completed by selecting the Repair button within the ArcGIS Administrator, ArcGIS License Administrator, or by de-authorizing and re-authorizing the licenses.
If the repair is not available, then the Trusted Storage can be either deleted or renamed (Solution 2).
Solution 2: Delete or rename Trusted Storage files
Navigate to the Trusted Storage:
Windows XP & 2003 Server:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FLEXnet
Windows Vista, 2008 Server & 7:
