	You're right about hserver, but that's not part of the license server 
package.  Everytime you start a SESI product, it looks for hserver.  If it's 
not running, it will start it from whatever distribution you're running.  
This talks to sesinetd, which is the license server.  So yup, it's important 
to have consistent hservers running, but this isn't related to the server.  
To sync up hservers, you can easily write a script that essentially runs:

	hserver -q

	on each machine, and you're good to go.
