Do you have any idea what function is being used to generate the hash?

Could be an environmentally dependent value is being used as part of the string to generate the hash.

If so, it might be a good idea to ask them to rethink that process, as moving the database to a new server ( or some dependency - IP? ) causes the app to break.
