Hi, how much license file did you upload? And what is your exact UCM version?

Probably you are running bug CSCtc43971 where if you had uploaded many license file, the license manager failed to start for timeout.

I have the same issue with a CUCMBE 7.1(3a), now I'm downloading the upgrade 7.1(3a)SU1a to upgrade the call manager.

Link for the bug:



Hi Danilo,

Thank you so much for the information.

I will get the Cisco licensing to combine the license first and see whether it solve the problem.  Totally I uploaded 27 license files to CCM.  The the problem confirm due to license files then I will upgrade the CCM patches.

By the way, how to remove existing license file in call manager?

On my server I had upload 51 license file and after upgrade to 7.1(3a)SU1a the problem is solved.

Another solutions is ask to cisco to combine al license file in a single license file, but I don't know how you can remove the file already inserted (I never do before ).

Hi all,

You can delete old or tempory license files from the CLI interface using the comman
d "file delete license
