I am installing Sametime 9 for a customer but had a prickly moment after installing the VMGR on RHEL 6.5.

After installing I couldn’t access the VMGR from the SSC, it was registered, I couldn’t get access to the SIP peer and other details. Looking in the VMGR SystemOut.log I saw the following:

Having access to the Lotus Software Knowledge Base via a Notes client allowed me to find Technote 1682860 “VMGR dma fails to start resulting in licensing and rejecting connections for conferences” which is at a status of “draft information.”

I raised a PMR and quickly I got a response with a hotfix RVVV-9L2CFZ.

Performing the steps to apply it worked a treat.

Problem

VMGR loads but with Licensing errors, and rejects all connections
