Recently i had upgraded Networker from 8.2 to 9.0, and i would like to retain the traditional licensing model
Along with the upgrade CLP Update License enabler has been auto created in registrations
When i requested for auth code , EMC licensing team had provided me a license file , which i had copied under C:\Program Files\EMC License Server\elms\licenses and configured and started LM service
License file: E:\Program Files\EMC License Server\elms\licenses\dpa.lic

I've got the same problem - did you manage to resolve this license issue in NetWorker 9? I've added the license file to the nsr\lic directory so that does not seem to be the issue.
Yes, the file is in both locations . The license server has loaded the license file and all seem ok on that front.
NetWorker warning is: CLP/ELMS server for basic license information found the following: 'Cant find license file'
Initially I had the License Server installed on the NetWorker Server (test lab). I thought this may be the cause of the issue as the documentation recommends it to be installed on another server so I've now uninstalled and reinstalled on another server. EMC licensing department has reissued the .lic with the updated details and the EMC License Sever is now running on a different host. Same issue. The License Server seems to be ok with the license loaded but it says 1 NetWorker Capacity license available and 0 used. In NetWorker when I right click on the server name and go Properties > Licensing > and then update CLP Refresh the same warning message returns a few seconds later.
I see this error mentioned in https://support.emc.com/kb/211906 but from what you said you already made sure requirements necessary for this to work are in place. The only thing left are permissions, but I doubt you missed that.
Here is a solution that I figured out that worked for me on Windows OS (for Networker 18.104.22.168):
1. Setup Flex licensing server as outlined in the EMC Licensing Guide. Documentation tell you to place the license file in "C:\Program Files\EMC License Server". In my environment, licensing server is running on the same server as Networker on port 27000.
2. Copy the license file to "...\EMC NetWorker\nsr\lic" folder.
3. Locate the "licspec.properties" file on your hard drive and edit it (on my server its here: "D:\EMC NetWorker\nsr\lic"). Find the line that says "license.path=" and change it to point to the full path on the license file that you got from EMC. In my case "license.path=D:\EMC NetWorker\nsr\lic\<FileName>.lic". If you do not make this adjustment, your GUI will always say "Can't find license file."
4. Log into Networker Admin console and goto "Server" on the ribbon at the top.
5. In the left window pane, right-click on the name of your Networker server and select "Properties"
6. In the "Networker Server Properties - <server name>" window, click on the "Licensing" tab and in the "CLP refresh" type "Yes" (many things in Networker are case sensitive...) and click "Ok".
7. Log out of Networker, then log back in and check your licensing information.
The way Networker works in Windows is total different than it works in the Linux/Unix environment. EMC documentation is mostly for Linux/Unix OS and is missing many steps that are required to get Networker to work correctly under Windows. In many cases the documentation is wrong or grossly incomplete .
To test your licensing (under windows, you will need to create a valid authentication token to run most commands from CMD):
1. open CMD and at the CMD prompt type (replace all <> with your environment info):
Her is the command for LDAP/AD users:
nsrlogin -s <NetworkerServer> -H <NetworkerServer> -p 9090 -t default -d <domain> -u <domainUser> -p "<domainUser Password>"
Here is the command to log in with local admin account
nsrlogin -s <NetworkerServer> -H <NetworkerServer> -p 9090 -u administrator -p "<admin Password>"
2. After you log in successfully with the above command, from CMD run
3. You should get info about your new license. Your GUI should also reflect this information.
