While registering a CCS Agent to CCS Manager we get the following error Message  " ESM_REG_23793:ESM problem - Error opening license file for read " and then the registration fails

 " ESM_REG_23793:ESM problem - Error opening license file for read "


The error will occur if the license has not been installed on the manager or the license file does not exist on the manager.



First verify the license is installed:

  1. Open the ESM Enterprise Console and expand "All Manager"
  2. Right click on the manager, select properties and then click on the license tab,
  3. If it gives an error regarding Unable to get License file for read, follow the below mentioned steps

a) Right click on the My ESM Enterprise and expand Enterprise License and click on License Manager

2. On License Management Console, click on Distribute button

3. Select the Manager and provide the New allocation value for the selected Manager, and click on ADD


Again try and register the Agent to the CCS Manager it should work this time.
