I'm using ArcMap 10.1 and need a specific extension that's activated on another user's machine. Is there a script or other tool available to re-claim this license?
Here are the typical reasons a license is not available:
User with Extension needs to deactivate the extension and close ArcGIS. License Server (Desktop Administrator) should show the license has returned
Then Enable the Extension in ArcGIS on the user who needs the extension.
If all the concurrent use licenses for the extension are currently in use by other users, you won't be able to use the extension until a license becomes available.

A minorly disruptive alternative is to start and stop the license service. Stop the service, wait a few seconds, then start it and immediately check out the license you need. Current users will get a license server warning, but will not actually be booted (except for the user whose license you took).
