What specific error do users get when they try to connect? Does it say that there aren't any licenses available or that no license server is available (or something else)?

I actually figured this out after trying many different approaches - From within the licence server selecting 'Manage Server' I selected rebuild licence database and deleted all licences, after re-keying them and restarting the services I was able to utilize the new licences.
