We have ran into a problem, we have seen it before too. I followed the instructions to add the new file info to the ansyslmd.lic file in play on the server. The issue is it wiped out everything from the previous licenses, seen in the license file attached, as well as the setting to use the .opt file in red below:

For a New Desktop, the license options are located in the ADD SOFTWARE section, and after selecting the ANSYS analysis option and/or desktop environment. Once there, select Use Existing License. You will then have to input your license information in the three box fields. License (ANSYSLMDLICENSEFILE): [email protected] To view and set license options. Select SpaceClaim Options from the File menu to display the SpaceClaim Options window. Click License in the navigation panel on the left. Modify the options on the page. Click OK to save all your changes and close the window. Usually the LMC will prompt you to do so if this is the case. Add A License File: read in a plaintext (usually.txt) license file from anywhere on disk into the LM (creating a.lic file in the proper location). As a DRD customer, you will typically receive your key via email from us in a.txt. This is the file you will save to disk and browse.

Are there better instructions for how to add the new licenses to the exiting without wiping out the exiting?

    If you use the ANSYS License Management Center to add a license file and if the license file you are adding is a Lease or Permanent (paid-up) keys, i.e., not a temp/evaluation key, it will remove the old license file completely and use the new one.

    If you want to do extra settings in the license file (such as adding the options file), you have to manually modify it afterwards.

    Just for a note, there is no need to specify 'options' to the path that you are showing because it's the default path and it's already looking for it. This 'options' keyword is used only when your option file is somewhere else.
