        I?m not a developer (or even user), and I?m not likely to see the
response for a while, but if there are multiple versions of XCP, it might be
beneficial to go ahead and add the information regarding the version you are
running to the thread and perhaps even to try the newest version if you
aren?t on it.

So we are saying that at the moment, if there a power failure, or a reboot
for whatever reasopn, we have to completly rebuild ??

The licensing components from XCP should have been removed and this not

aware of the situation and offer their guidance. Thanks.

Well, I made the mistake of shutting down my XCP cloud tonight not knowing
that XCP licenses expire every 30 days and expired licenses prevent any VMs
from being started (and not having any procedure listed anywhere to get a
new license). So I reinstall XCP on one machine, get a new 30 day license
generated, import the pool data base so the VMs are back and discover it
sets the damn license back to the expired date!

So now I'm down totally. I can't start anything, I can't restore anything, I
can't regenerate a new license for any of the machines without abandoning
everything. Is there ANY way to get a new license on these without starting
over from ground zero?
