Hi Paul,

I was working on a similar thread awhile back and the fix was to stop/start

the Cisco License Manager service. Maybe give that a try. I'm not positive

of the process exactly, but I think they used the "file delete" then stopped/started

the service, then added the new file.

The message you're getting is referring to database instead of files.  You may verify that with CLI command:

run sql select * from licenseinfo

If the old license still in database, you may try to restart "License Manager".  It should clean it up.  If it didn't, you need to open a TAC case.  TAC engineer will get into root shell and remove the record from database.
