Cluster and user license

Hi,

We have 2 NW6.5SP4 servers running with clustering services.
All was fine until one of the server crashed. All the shared resources
(DNS, DHCP, etc.) were transfered to the second server but we are no
longer able to log onto the server. Only 3 users at a time can access the
server (there is an error message when we try to map a volume for the
next user).
We tried to uninstall the 50 users license and to reinstall it (with
iManager) but we still have the same problem.

If anyone has a way to fix this, it will be very appreciated.

Jean-Philippe

Re: Cluster and user license

This would imply that the user licenses that have been installed have
been assigned to the server (the currently failed one) In NW6.x you
should not assign a user license to a server as the user licenses are
now tree based and by assigning a license to a server you can stop it
from being usable elsewhere in the tree.

I would delete the user licenses from the tree, and then reinstall the
user licenses into the tree using NWAdmin. You will probably need to
bounce the server to get it to see the license once they have been
added to the tree.

Re: Cluster and user license

All the licenses have been assigned to the OU, not to the server. This is
what makes me crazy. I tried to uninstall the licenses and reinstall
using Imanager. I will try with NWAdmin and see if this solves the
problem.

Thank you.

Re: Cluster and user license

Install the license to the highest container in your tree - the "O"
container. The licenses will then apply to all subcontainers.

I assume you are using the embedded (free) two-node cluster service.
Otherwise you need a cluster license as well.

Re: Cluster and user license

They should not be assigned to anything... Just be there. That way
when a server walks the tree it finds them unassigned and uses them
and makes that user as using that license. When they are assigned to
anything that process stops working correctly.
