FLEXlm error: -92,10 Feature removed during lmreread, or wrong SERVER line hostid

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Error Message

When starting ArcMap or ArcCatalog, the following error message is displayed, even though the Desktop Administrator shows that an ArcInfo, ArcEditor or ArcView product license is available:

"FLEXlm Error: Feature removed during lmreread, or wrong SERVER line hostid.
Feature: ARC/INFO
Server name: server1
License path: C:\Program Files\ESRI\License\ArcGIS9x
FLEXlm error: -92,10."


The most likely cause of this problem is that there are *9.lic files located in C:\Program Files\ESRI\License\ArcGIS9x that point to a previous Sentinel hardware key number or SERVER hostname.

Solution or Workaround

Remove all *9.lic license files and then run the Update License tool. Follow the second procedure in the Knowledge Base document linked in the Related Information section below.
