  • Hi Luis,

     

    What does your license say? If you open up the file mentioned below, you'll be looking at the license that AdminTools will use when creating a new database.

     

    /opt/vertica/config/share/license.key

     

    Warning: the last line (the long line of characters) is your license key, which you are responsible for keeping secret. You must not share that in this community or elsewhere. But you may share the top lines. For example, the community edition license (shipped with the software) shows:

     

    Vertica Community Edition
    2011-11-22
    Perpetual
    0
    1TB CE Nodes 3

     

    What do you have?

     

    - Derrick
