GLOBAL LICENSE ERRORS- MOD Connect 800xA system
We are periodically seeing a pop-up that says: "
A Hardware Key (Machine ID) has failed. You have 48 hours remaining to correct the problem before licenses become invalid.
Please refer to the license error log by runnig: Start->Programs->ABB Industrial IT 800xA->System->Licensing->License Status VIewer
Or by browsing the error log file on the license server at the location "<CLS_NSTALLED_PATH>\Licenses".
We are currently in operation and are looking for a way to resolve this licensng issue without experiencing any disruptions to operations/manufacturing. Our system is an 800xA MOD Connect system and we have license dongles attached to a redundant ESXi host.
Previously, removing and re-inserting the license dongles has re-established the connection during plant downtime. If we were to remove and re-inser the dongles while in operation right now would it produce any errors or affect production in any way?
