DRE will not draw license after CAS server name is changed

Problem Statment:

After the CAS server name is changed, the system show 0 license used in the DRE (License > Assignment View). No error message is generated when opening System Manager.

Cause:

This could happen if the registry key for the CAS server name has not been updated to reflect the new CAS server name. 

Resolution:

To resolve the issue the server's name in the Windows registry should be updated, performing the following steps:

1. On the CAS server, launch Regedit

2. There are three registry keys where the CAS server name should be updated:

1. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Equitrac > Common > CASName > replace the old server name by the new server name

2. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Equitrac > DRE > SystemName > replace the old server name by the new server name (appears only if DRE is installed on the same server as the CAS server)

3. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Equitrac > Common > SystemName > replace the old server name by the new server name

3. Restart the CAS and DRE services and Force Cache in System Manager
