Networker Server License Disabled after IP change

Jump to solution

We are changing all our servers IP and we just got the time to change our backup server this time. After I changed the IP, Networker server won't start and all licenses disabled.

NetWorker registration: (notice) invalid auth code for License enabler

 

Do I need to re-host my licenses in EMC licensing?

HI have not verified this for a while but on a Linux system NetWorker's hostid in fact represents the IP address (in hex - just that the groups are arranged differently).

Usually ip address change wont disable license enablers.

Verify if the host id of the server is changed. If its changed then contact emc licensing team (licensing@emc.com) and get the new authcode for the existing enabler codes.

If its not changed, then delete the enabler and add it again with the same authcode. See if it helps
