License File

I was getting message: HP Service Manger license expires in 7 days so I replaced LicFile.txt file with new LicFile.txt file restarted service manage and I'm still getting this message.   I ran sm -reportlic and it shows that my license will expire in 7 days.

 

any suggestions would be a great help

 

Thanks

Clyde

Re: License File

Either you accidentally saved the original license or the new license code is incorrect.

Re: License File

Hi Clyde,

 

Just in case you are using Windows Server 2008 you'll need to check for the license file in the following path:

 

%PROGRAMDATA%Hewlett-Packard\HPOvLIC\data\LicFile.txt

 

It might be you are actually needing to place it there instead of using the other path that will be:

 

C:Program Files\Common Files\Hewlett-Packard\HPOvLIC\data\LicFile.txt

 

Regards,

Alex

For Service Manager, the license file is located in the application RUN directory. For example:

C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Service Manager 9.30\Server\RUN\LicFile.txt

Re: License File

Hi,

Yes it does simply means either you have trail version license or code is not valid.
So ask HP to generate the new lic file fro you.

hth,
