Re: vWLC problem

You need to open a TAC case and have them generate a new license file for you. You can use the same one, especially if you rebuilt the VM.

Duplicate post.


This is your THIRD duplicate post.  I've already requested you to refrain from making multiple post of the same issue because it will confuse anyone.

Delete the last two threads and return to your original thread.

Besides, I have no idea what answers YOU WANT TO HEAR.  There's already three people (Martin Wisely, me and Scott Fella) who's pointed to you the RIGHT METHOD of re-hosting your license but you continue to create duplicate threads.
