In Transact 4.5, why am I receiving the following error:

“ Windows Server 2012 R2 2018-05-18T13:20:22,749 ERROR localhost-startStop-1 com.ephesoft.license.server.LicenseServerManager – Error while starting license service as can’t bind a remote reference to the specified name in registry. Windows Server 2012 R2 2018-05-18T13:20:23,796 ERROR localhost-startStop-1 com.ephesoft.license.client.LicenseClient – RemoteException occcured while creating service object. Remote LicenseService object cann’t be created for current License host”


Root Cause:

LAN cable is unplug from the workstation/server.


Ensure LAN Cable is connected to network card. Ephesoft Transact licensing is depending on MAC ID.

Without LAN cable is connected; Transact is failed to read the MAC ID and host name.
