Due to a misunderstanding, IST thought that there was a 30 days grace period built into the license file, and so they thought the license file wouldn’t expire until 03/01/08. But as it turned out, that wasn’t true.
As a result, the matlab license server was down on 02/02/08 and 02/03/08.
The matlab license file has been renewed to 02/01/09.
We apologize for any inconvenience for the matlab downtime.
