CF MX7 License problem

I've had a CF server(v7.0.1.116466) running our corporate intranet for a couple years now.  It runs on a linux box with Fedora Core 2, Apache 2, and MySQL 4.  It has always been very stable.  Anyway I had a disk fail and had to restore from backup the /opt/coldfusionmx directory, ever since no matter what I do the system keeps reverting to a license that only allows 5 IP addresses to access the server.  I have tried reinputing the license via the Coldfusion Administrator and it says it accepts and that I have a standard license but it still only allows 5 users.  (The error users get after the initial 5 is actually a JRun error saying the JRun server has refused connection.) I am at a loss as to what to do other than try to reinstall everything which I'm reluctant to do as its not particularly easy on a linux system.

Thanks in advance

you can also try this

    * Stop the ColdFusion MX Application Server.
    * Backup $CFHOME/lib/license.properties
    * Open the original $CFHOME/lib/license.properties with a text editor.
    * Find the line with the serial number, such as "sn=CXX7NN-NNNNN-NNNNN-NNNNNN"
    * Remove everything on that line after "sn=" (this removes the serial number)
    * Save the file
    * Start the ColdFusion MX Application Server.
    * Check the System Information page in the ColdFusion Administrator to confirm that it has been changed into the Developer Edition.

Then re-enter you correct serial number

I dont have a problem with my apache server, it boots and loads the mod_jrun.so, also tried the second approach  verified serial number is correct.  Its odd I clear the license.properties file, it reverts to developer, I input the Serial# it upgrades to standard...but it continues to limit me to 5 IP addresses.  I even tried to intentionally scewing up the serial# and coldfusion adimistrator wouldn't accept it at all.

Here is the log entry that is showing up in my cfserver.log file after I upgrade it to a standard license:

06/20 13:19:17 error IP license restriction is in effect.  Can only accept connection from either localhost or five IP addresses, attempted from 192.168.xxx.xxx.  Previous accesses were from [ {192.168.xxx.xxx}  {192.168.xxx.xxx}  {170.146.xxx.xxx}  {192.168.xxx.xxx}  {192.168.xxx.xxx} ].
