1.  No license files 

2. Deny IP list enabled.


1.  Please verify that DS server has the correct count of licenses installed.

Help > about . should be the correct date & count.

2. Verfiy that there is no deny IP range specified. 

Control Panel > Deployment solution > Options > Connections > Allow reject agents based on IP 

Please change View by small icons instead of category view

In our case allow/deny was enabled and ONLY server IP was specified. i.e. 

start IP 10.x.x.1 end :10.x.x.1

replace end with 10.x.x.254

that fixed our issue.
