Cannot relicense PGP CLI

Created: 22 Apr 2011 | 1 comment

When I try to renew my PGP CLI license on AIX 6.1 as the root user:

pgp --license-authorize --license-name "First Last"

--license-organization "Company Name"




I get:

pgp:license authorize (2706:PGP Command Line already has a license)
pgp:license authorize (3108:permission denied, force option required)

My license expires in 9 days.  For the license-number I am using the Key supplied from Syamantic Express Sales Order.  The length and form of the Key on the certicate matches the examples I have seen in the user guide.

I don't understand why the --force option is not working for me.

Any ideas?

Your invocation seems to be correct.  Make sure all the details are correct (the license number, and the associated license name and organization -- these may have changed).

The license information is stored in the preferences file PGPPrefs.xml.  You could also consider removing this file and re-licensing again.  Your keyrings can be kept and re-used.
