Why do I receive "Hostids Do Not Match" when installing MATLAB R2021b with a server license.dat file with the error below?
The hostid in the license file must be for this computer. Obtain a new license file generated for the hostid of this computer from your license administrator or from MathWorks License Center.

When installing MATLAB R2021b and Toolboxes with a Network License, this error is generated due to a bug. Please ignore the "Hostids Do Not Match" error message and proceed by pressing the OK button.
Alternatively, you can select a network.lic or a network license file instead of a license.dat which contains the following information within the file:
SERVER {hostname} {HostID} 27000
USE_SERVER
