What does the license say?  Is it still in trial mode as is the case sometimes after an upgrade?

Bring it up on the first Host that is working.  Once it is fully up, see if you are still getting the licensing error

you would have to import it into the other host(if it has access to that datastore), but forget about that for a second.  Checkout some of these links

I am confused about what you saw on your license tab.  If you click on ythe licensed features, then click on edit, what do you see?

Also did you try the link above?

And here is one more link.
