Howto Update the SPSS 16 License Server IP Address

I had to update the IP address of the SPSS 16 license manager on a number of prototype machines today and I couldn't track it down in the SPSS directory. I had to turn to Google who tracked it down on an SPSS site for me.
Check the appropriate spssprod.inf file. This file is located in the product installation directory on the desktop computer. Open spssprod.inf and make sure DAEMONHOST is set to the correct name or IP address of the computer on which the license manager is running. If you are using redundant servers, this should be blank.
Much easier than putting site license files on each machine. I should have done this years ago.
