Issue: Moab will not start, and displays "Invalid license file for current host"
Affected Versions: All
Trying to start Moab you get the following error:
rootatMachineA ~# /etc/init.d/moab start
Starting moab: Invalid license file for current host - ''
Please contact Adaptive Computing for assistance
Moab will now exit
If you run "cat $MOABHOMEDIR/moab.lic", you will see a line that says which host it is authorized for. Our observation is that the value returned by the "hostname" command must match the server name in the license file.
- Get the hostname the license expects (cat $MOABHOMEDIR/moab.lic)
- Change your hostname to match that value (hostname <name>)
- Start/restart Moab (moab)
You may then contact Adaptive Computing for an updated license with the correct name, or change the necessary files for the new name to persist across reboots (/etc/sysconfig/network, /etc/hostname, /etc/hosts, and so on, as the OS dictates).Tags: invalid license
