Unanswered Question

This is the error that appears when you try to add the license:

"Licence file does not match local host name(WCS != SevidorWCS)"

What could be happening?

I have this problem too.

Could you generate, a new licence file with functional licence (i think - with a name "SevidorWCS" only). I think it is

incompatibility between Cisco names and MS-Windows names of host.

Hi,

I had a similar sounding problem and it was down to an error on my part - when I registered the license on the website I entered "servername" but when I built the server using the install discs I entered "servername.ourcompany.co.uk" and of course the server names didn't match. I spoke to our vendor who got in touch with Cisco who supplied a license file wiith the correct name.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Do not use the fully qualified domain host name on your server and then ask for the simple host name on the license. It is a common mistake. The two must match identically.

Hostname is not case sensitive. Please issue the command 'hostname' on your WCS server. The output of this command needs to exactly match the one in the license file. If it doesn't you need to get your license rehosted. Please open a Cisco TAC case for this.
