License Management Server 11.3.0 release notes

Release: June 2017

Upgrade Paths

  • Foundation Must be installed as a new installation.
  • Standalone LMS is upgradeable from LMS (Standalone) 11.0 only to LMS 11.3.0

Differences from LMS 11.2.x

  • Activating a large number (more than 2000) of licenses could cause the following error: 'could not execute query...'
  • Fixed an issue with creating users in Stand Alone LMS
  • Facing timeout error while activating the Licenses through User Governance for bulk licenses

Known Issues

  • Adding multiple users through Active Directory can cause the browser tab to go into a Not Responding state.
  • In an offline activation, no validation is shown when a file other than the .lic file is uploaded.
  • If a license administrator renews licenses for which the administrator was not the original owner, the license ownership is not automatically transferred from the original license administrator that created the licenses to the license administrator that renewed them.
  • When testing a site connection, a net.pipe error might be thrown if there is intermittent unavailability of the net.pipe service on the LMS server. Make sure that the net.pipe service is running, and then try again.
