After making a clone image of a working SpectroSERVER machine, we are not able to get the Spectrum Control Panel - SCP - or the SpectroSERVER - SS - to start.  We see these messages in various log files:


Feb 19 16:35:19 ERROR TRACE at Exception: CORBA::NO_PERMISSION

       Explanation: Borland Enterprise Server license error[1005]: License setting is not valid; cannot find license in your installation. Please obtain a valid license and/or configure appropriately.

       Completion Status: NO

We have confirmed the $SPECROOT/lib/VBNS/license/license.ini file exists and has the correct permissions.  We also verified that the /opt/SPECTRUM/spectrum80.env file has the correct BESC_LIC_DIR set.


Cloning or copying an image of Spectrum is not supported.


Release : 20.2

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER


You will need to delete the image and freshly install Spectrum.
