Is there a problem to change server 2008 terminal server licening server IP address?

We have a 2008 terminal licensing server and a separate box running 2008 R2 server with RDS. It works fine for a couple of months (longer than 90 days). Then we deciide to move the two servers to another subnet. But once we changed the IP address on both servers, users can not use RDP to connect the terminal server any more. Even administrator can not access the server thru RDP. It says no licensing server available. The RDS server shows it find the licensing server's new IP address and has a "Green" mark. Can you help?

Thanks.

Hi

In the registry if you go here what values do you have

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters

Do you have a Name: DefaultLicenseServer, if yes what is the Data value? Dns name, or IP?

In any other server, if  you type nslookup servername for both servers what do you get? The correct IP, or the old IP?

Do you use SSL certifications to connect?
