Keep getting licencing errors when I first open Max
« on: July 06, 2017, 03:53:05 PM »
I have a licence server service running but I keep getting a message saying that there are no licences and it will render in box mode. I'm using Max 2017 with network licenses.
If I restart the windows (10) service then it will work after a short moment.

I'm not running the latest forest and RC - it's the one before that (sorry I'm currently rendering so am not sure of the version number)

Additional (and most likely irrelevant) info:

- I had installed the licence server on one of my nodes as I was switching between my laptop and workstation. but now the license server resides on my workstation (the one that I'm also working on).
- I had previously had an issue because there were two instances of the licence server running but I have since stopped that and this issue occurs even when this is the only network computer that is switched on.

Any ideas how to fix this?

*edit* Note: My network license is configured with the IP address of the correct computer i.e. my workstation.
