IssueError: "Could not read license record" when running sdnewdb
Error: "Database contains maximum number of replicas allowed by license" when running sdrepmgmt add
Error: "Unable to add replica record...replica table creation failed" when running sdload
CauseThis occurs when using an RSA ACE/Server 4.0 license as a license for RSA ACE/Server 5.1.1. This also occurs when trying to load a 4.0 database into RSA ACE/Server 5.1.1 - neither of these are possible.
ResolutionTo correct this issue, copy the original 5.x license.rec file to the to /ace/data/license.rec directory - sdnewdb, sdrepmgmt add, sdcreadm should now work correctly.
