License Enforcement System Has Been Tampered With

Post by drew.green@tjtpa.com » May 15, 2013 12:31 pm

Last night I received this error message on all 3 of our Veeam servers. A reboot of one of the servers appears to have resolved it for that server and I'm about to reboot the other servers. I find it strange that this happened to all 3 on the same night. No antivirus on the Veeam servers to cause the issue. It appears to be a Windows issue, but no Windows Updates were installed in the past few days. Anyone have a clue what's going on here?

Code: Select all

Drew, do you have any messages corresponding to that issue in the Windows Event Log?

Also, please provide your support case ID number, as it is required when posting about technical issues.

No Windows Events that seem to correlate. I'm in the process of renewing my support license.

Additionally, I'm wondering what Windows version is being used.

Thanks.

Multiple Windows versions. Backup servers are a mix of 2008 R2 and 2008. Guest VMs (items being backed up) are all over the map: 2000, XP, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, 2003, 2008, 2008 R2.

Most of the backups succeeded after automatic retries, except for 2 VMs of one of the jobs, which after rebooting the respective backup server this morning, succeeded as well. Very strange.

I should also note: we run replicas every 30 minutes. Some of the jobs succeeded, others were failing until a backup server reboot.

Google says that this error is most likely caused by Software Licensing service failure. I think you should not worry much about that as you say that subsequent retries were successful. At least you know who to blame next time it appears.

That's what I was getting from my searches as well. I just found it very odd that it happened on multiple machines all at the same time.

All cloned from a single template? At least for some of them...
