After upgrading Deployment Solution to version 6.8, the existing installed licenses are no longer applicable and errors arise stating the server is not compliant with licensing. The .lic files remain at version 6.5.
HP RDP licenses cannot be applied to Altiris Deployment Solution 6.8. Such licenses can only be applied up Deployment Solution versions up to 6.5.
RDP licenses can be identified by the license key associated with them. Go to
About from the Deployment Server console and review the licenses before upgrading.
A window similar to the picture below should open:
Notice the Licensed to: section -- the portion of the license description "Desc.:" has a license ID that is segemented in sections of 4 or 5 characters separated by dashes; Altiris native licenses consist of 4 character segments; HP RDP licenses are segmented in sections of 5 characters.
The highest version of Deployment Solution to which HP RDP licenses can be applied at this time is DS 6.5.
Should you wish to use DS 6.8, you will need to install the latest version of HP RDP 3.50 (which encompasses DS 6.8).
