Concurrent number of AOS' for this application exceeds the licensed number


TechKnowledge Content


SYMPTOMS


The customers license has plenty of users and multiple Axapta Object Servers.


1. The following error is received when trying to start 2nd AOS in a cluster installation:


"Concurrent number of AOS' for this application exceeds the licensed number"


2. And this error is received when trying to start a 2Tier client from the same server after entering username and password:


"Cannot start Navision Axapta, as more users are running the system than the purchased rights allow"


CAUSE

Windows Registry setting


RESOLUTION

Changes made in the registry entry:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters


EnableOplocks REG_DWORD 0 or 1


Default: 1 (Enabled by Default)


Change it to 0.


Notes
  • This is not a license problem. One possible configuration to present the errors:


    The application is not installed on this server, but system directory in the configurations points to a hidden share on a server in the same domain. The user who is running AOS and 2Tier client is a domain user and has full access to the hidden share. The share could be opened in Explorer.
  • By default, if the registry key does not exist, the system considers that Oplocks is enabled. If the registry key does not exist, create the key by using a value that is set to 0 to disable the key.
