Messages simliar to below are logged in the network license debug log file every minute:

11:36:33 (adskflex) UNSUPPORTED: "57600ACD_2009_0F" (0D1B EB53 6325 5C0C ) user@computer  (License server system does not support this feature. (-18,327:10054 ""))

11:37:33 (adskflex) UNSUPPORTED: "57600ACD_2009_0F" (0D1B EB53 6325 5C0C ) user@computer  (License server system does not support this feature. (-18,327:10054 ""))

You can work on your product without having any issues.

This can happen if a server is restarted with a new license file while a client is using a license aquired from the server when it was using an old license file. Since encrypted codes in a license file is different, the log is created in the debug log file.

An example is as below:

  1. Network license server SERVER1 uses a license file old_license.lic.
  2. A client COM1 aquires a license from SERVER1.
  3. SERVER1 updates the license file and now uses a new license file new_license.lic.
  4. UNSUPPORTED message appears every minute in a debug log file. This is due to:
    • COM1's license is from the old license file. Its encrypted code information defers from the new license file's.
    • Network heartbeat is performed every minute between a client and a server.
  5. However, COM1 can use the product without issues.

 

The resolutions are:

  • A user can simply ignore the messages. Or,
  • A user can reboot his/her machine so that it aquires a new license information from the server.
