Go to the \Program Files\CSCOpx\CSAMC\cfg and delete the 2 license files that are duplicates and re-import them. If that doesn't work delete all the .lic files and reimport them all. This will fix the problem.

Please remeber to rate any post that helps you out.

VMS needs a licence to run and CSA MC also needs a different license to run.

With VMS, you bought either RESTRICTED or UNRESTRICTED and entered it in VMS.

the Licence for the CSA MC is a seperate licence that should have come with your order.

Enter the .lic file into the CSA MC.

I am having the same problem. I installed VMS with a 20 device Restricted license and that installed OK.

When I try to install the 100 client licenses and 6 server licenses, for CSA MC, is when it fails. It copies the license to the server but they never show up as being valid.

Are you saying there is an additional license that should have came with VMS for CSA MC? Is that sometihng you have to purchase when you order VMS?
