After review by the development team, it has been determined that this issue is related to a known limitation with the software that lies outside of Esri's control. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
Single Use Desktop breaks if AMI is restarted due to hardware changes of the AMI instance. It is recommended to use Concurrent Use licensing with the License Manager.
