The license key being entered is not compatible...

[ Edited ]

Good Afternoon,

 

I have an existing BES 4.1.0.38 server with 6 CAL's currently installed and running. We recently purchased 5 additional CAL's, but when I try to add them I receive:

 

"The license key being entered is not compatible with existing keys in license manager."

 

I did a bit of research and found that this usually happens when a Professional key is used with an Enterprise server or visa-versa. I'm pretty sure I'm on Enterprise already, but the Help, About screens in my BES manager are vague.

 

My service provider has been no help what-so-ever, even though all Blackberry products and services have been purchased through them. Someone at my provider also told me I need to upgrade to the latest version of BES, as the latest version is compatible with either key (Pro or Enterprise).

 

Really there are two things I need to know.

 

1. How do I figure out what type of BES server I am running?

 

2. Do I need to change my BES server or do I need a new license key from my service provider?

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

FYI, I am currently downloading and plan to install service pack 6.

Call RIM / TSuppport and indicate the error you're getting.

 

This error is either:

 

The license key typed is a BlackBerry Enterprise Server - Small Business Edition (SME) key and the keys stored in the license manager are for BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

 

or

 

The license key typed is a BlackBerry Enterprise Server key and the keys stored in the license manager are for BlackBerry Enterprise Server SME.
