A load will copy enough license units in the kernel cache to enable use.
It can be that your license has not enough units ?
What is (are) all the messages showing up durng the boot of your system. Especially when the lmf command tries to load the licenses ?

Every system needs its own units of the licenses. Check what does the 4100 system license requirements and add enough licenses accordingly
