WARNING 3863: License issue: Vertica license is not yet valid

During the 3 nodes cluster creation I got this error:

it's a license issue? 2 nodes are working fine, the third node not.

  • Hi,

    Can you please check if LANG environment variable is set to UTF-8 type on all the nodes. We have seen this causing , non reading of licence file in past.

  • HI,
    it's en_US.UTF-8 on all nodes from dbadmin user.

  • Hi,

    When you started admintools, were you prompted for a license at that point? Or do you typically pass the license file as a switch when you install?This will help me to understand if the license is truly invalid or if one is missing entirely.

    Regards'

    Abhishek
  • I used the unattend installation with config file and I passed the path of the license
  • Hi,

    can you send me - "admintools-dbadmin.log" from the node where you tried to create the database.

    Also,

    Please check if you are able to ssh to self from a node & also to other nodes.

    Regards'

  • Hi,

    May you can check couple of things:

    1. Port 5433 is open on node0003. And it's not being used by any other process than Vertica.

    netstat -an|grep 5433

    2. Check the value of environment variable LANG on node003. Ideally it should be set as "en_US.UTF-8". You can check this variable and compare if it's same as on other 2 nodes.

    Thanks,
    Pravesh



  • the language is the same.
    the port on all nodes are correct:
    netstat -an|grep 5433
    tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:5433                0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN
    tcp        0      0 :::5433                     :::*                        LISTEN
    udp        0      0 0.0.0.0:5433                0.0.0.0:*
  • How can I send you the file?
