shared licensing server

How do I go about getting the backup state changed on this shared licensing server?  I'm guessing that EXPIRED is not a good thing.  Also does this need to register with the primary shared license server?  On the primary it says the backup licensing server is not registered.

Thanks in advance.

Have you verified that all

Have you verified that all your other ASA's are using the primary License server again?  I haven't had to use the backup license server yet except for a very limited timeframe but I know it can only go active for 30 days in the case the primary is offline.  After 30 days, it is not going to respond to license requests.  Perhaps that is what the expired is referring to.

 

and yes, the backup and primary license servers need to be able to talk to each other.

Thanks for the reply.We have

Thanks for the reply.

We have 1 HA pair in our primary DC (Active/Standby) and another HA pair in our DR site (Active/Standby) as well.  The primary HA pair is the shared license server and the DR HA pair is the backup license server.  From the primary HA pair I can ping the DR HA pair and vice versa.  I find it odd that there is client info on the DR HA and not on the primary DC one.  See below.  Is this normal?  And do you know of a way to reregister the DR HA to the primary DC one?
