License server will not start: Error Not a valid server hostname, exiting

Jun 8, 2014


Issue:

License server will not start and the debug log shows an error Not a valid server hostname, exiting

Causes:

The license server will not start if the server name in the license file does not math the server's actual hostname

Solution:

If only the servername is incorrect it can me manually corrected in the license file by editing the license file in notepad and changing the servername in the server line. If the MAC address has also changed the license file will need to be re-generated with the new info.
