    license_check [err]: No match for IP address"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    The following messages appear in the pc_server log:

    license_check [err]: No match for IP address
    Error: License check, Exiting...

    The actual server address is missing from the /etc/hosts file.

    "" is the loopback interface address; it is never an actual server address.

    1. Determine the correct server address; it must be one of the addresses in the $alephe_tab/license file.

    2. cd /etc/hosts

    3. Add an entry for the correct, actual server address.

    4. Restart the pc_server.

    Additional Information
