The computer signature can change after exchanging hardware on the Management Server computer. When the computer signature is changed, the license for the base package becomes invalid.
To avoid licensing problems, finish the hardware and software configuration before you generate the computer signature.
The following changes can make the base license invalid:
Please follow the steps below when an error message appears that the license is wrong, such as:
“Sorry, you've exceeded the amount of activations for this Authorization"
“Activation invalid: Key mismatch”
Even that you have checked the Authorization number and the license seems to be already active, you could be in one of the cases mentioned above and the HW ID of the unit may have changed. Therefore, the license transfer to the new HW ID is needed. The Central Technical Support team can help you in this matter.
Once the license is active again, please check if you have already installed the below patch 1.0.1 on your unit.
If not, please download it from the link below and install it on your unit:
