Anyone know how you get a client to switch license servers? I just installed R2009a and typed in the wrong license server (we still have an old server running R2006, I pointed to that by mistake); I really don't want to uninstall/reinstall the whole @#$@#$ program again.

I have had issues with redundant license servers in MATLAB. Mathworks recommends using environmental variables, such as MLM_LICENSE_FILE=27000@server1.com;27000@server2.com;27000@server3.com

That worked -- thanks! OK, so my question now is, what does MATLAB use as a default if there is no MLM_LICENSE_FILE env var? –  Jason S Jun 19 '09 at 13:40
    
In the MATLAB/2009a folder in Program Files, there is a licenses folder, where you can put a USE_SERVER license.dat or network.lic file which Matlab can read. I think the ENV variable takes precedence. –  churnd Jun 19 '09 at 15:02
