Assumption


  • Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition SP1

    I got a email for active eval webapp for abap license yesterday. I try my license via gui frontend the system can not accept the input as you introducing way and hinting an unvalid license number. By a mistake i delete original temp license, so I can not login again.
    Should i reinstall again?

    How to explain email content as following part?

    “Some useful hints:
    – The license key depends on your hardware. If you have
    changed the hardware setup or if you want to install
    the demo on another hardware, you have to request a new
    license using the new hardware key.
    – You can obtain your current hardware key and change/update
    your license without reinstalling the demo at any time.
    To do that, use the “saplicense” executeable located in
    C:\BSP
    with the -get and -install switches
    – If your license will not work, check that the characters
    match in case and make sure you differ between zero and
    the letter “O”.”

    c:\BSP is a DOS command or a path?

      When you want to install the license with the command prompt tool saplicence.exe you have to be logged on at your PC with the “nspadm” Windows user which was created by the installation (or open a new cmd with “runas”) .
      go to the “C:\usr\sap\NSP\SYS\exe\run” folder and call
      saplicense -install

      Seems to be the classical space in path name error.
      Move the installation files away from the “Documents and settings” folder and into a path where no folder has more than 8 charachters, for example c:\install\sap. Then start installing.

      Cheers

    Minisap send me about license e_mail:
    Dear Mr XXX,

    thank you for your interest in SAP solutions.

    You requested an evaluation license for the following system:
    SAP System ID: NSP; Operating System: Windows
    SAP Release: 6.40; Database: MaxDB

    You have already registered with the evaluation and
    your license key is still valid.

    If you want to change your registration data, please
    reply to this email and specify your needs.
    In case that you have lost your license key, here
    is your current evaluation data:

    Your Hardware key : S0368790000
    Your License Key : ZPOA9PT8Z8VSEW4BDBFIV652
    License Expiration date: 20051206
    SID : NSP
    Installation-Nr. : DEMOSYSTEM

    Some useful hints:
    – The license key depends on your hardware. If you have
    changed the hardware setup or if you want to install
    the demo on another hardware, you have to request a new
    license using the new hardware key.

    Have fun!

    I use t_code slicense,click ‘install’,input relative contents,press enter key,but one error display ‘Invalid license key’.

    Others:
    when I run t_code SICK,display error message: ‘no application server offers an ENQ service’.

    Could you give me?

    Thanks and regards,
    collysun.

      It seems enq service didn’t work fine. You have to try to restart NSP instance in MMC. If it doesn’t help, reinstalling db instance is the only solution. I managed to solve this problem by reinstalling.
