JSI Tip 2180. License Manager replication failed?

When the License Logging Service, on a licensing server, can not replicate to the License Master server, the event log contains:

      Event ID: 213
      Source: License Manager
      Description: Replication of license information failed because the
      license logging service on server  could not be contacted. 
This is normally the result of a communications problem on your network. The License Logging Service must be able to establish a RPC connection with the License Master server.

If you can't find the problem, here is what Microsoft recommends in Q198132, when this happens on your Windows NT or Windows 2000 network:

"To work around this issue and prevent the error messages from being written to Event Viewer, you can stop the LLS. To do this click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Services. Double-click License Logging Service, click Disabled, click OK, and then click Close. "
