I reset a IGEL UD3 v10 to factory default and then scaned to bring back into UMS but get “Error: UMS License violation”

Does anyone know what can cause the following: I have a UD3 v10 that I factory reset and scan to bring back into UMS but get Error: UMS License violation

How did you reset the device? Locally or through UMS?

Can you provide UMS Version also?


albeit the messaging is slightly different locally

Ok, beside the UMS Version, can you provide the exact Igel OS Version?

We are speaking about a UD3 Igel device not UDC3, right?

UD3-LX41s, UD3-LX50s running either 5.13 or 10.05.100

Thank you! Can you provide a Screenshot / Picture of UMS / Device error?

Hem, ok. Strange… Can you open a terminal (Accessories,Terminal,+,Save), login as root, and make a screenshot of:

ls /licenses/dsa/licenses/

and then:

cat /licenses/dsa/licenses/thelicfileListedbefore

so when the device is already defaulted is there a pword

No, just enter.

Is it happening on one device or on several?

yes several

And they worked fine until Factory reset?

some yes, and others were off

On the ones that were just powered on and already in UMS would show up red

And what did the devices that “were off”? Or let me ask in another way: how many devices do you have in UMS? And how did you realized that something is wrong?

I first noticed a problem when we had some devices that were turned off and we needed to reconfigure them. We would usually do a factory reset then bring them back into UMS with the desired UMS profile setup

The background. We recently upgraded to UMS 6.02 and then added HA and LB roles then added a second UMS server

Can you please edit the lic file in a editor and check if mac address corresponds to the device?


That’s the turning point!! Please check if you have enough HA Licenses under UMS Administration, Global Configuration, Licenses, UMS Licenses

I don’t

so is that why this is happening?

Yes! Absolutely ! On OS10 you need to buy licenses for the using of HA. 5 CUL are free everything on top must be bought. Did you?

No, I didn’t know that

So, can I just remove the HA and LB roles

And every additional UMS Server you added… Or if you plan an upgrade to OS11, then you would have HA included by default without needing for paying additional fees.

so, in theory removing the roles on both UMS servers, will bring back to licensing functionality and thereby Factory resets would function as normal. Roughly how much are the HA licenses?

I didn‘t tried to revert a HA to regular for a long time, so, make backups of everything just to be sure (DB also, please). Removing every role server, uninstalling the last UMS Server and reinstalling without HA, should (no guarantee without beeing onsite) work.

Sent you a PM.

okay cool, thanks
