BNA 14.0.1 SMI-S only trial license

Hi.

 

I have just installed BNA 14.0.1 with SMIS only feature for the firt time on a server.

I got the message that I have 0 days left in my trial license. This is a new server so it is impossible to have 0 days remaining.

 

Is there a temp license I need to enter to 'enjoy' the 120 days trial?

hi Antonio.

I am not able to start BNA. Right after the login page it asks for license key. Says there are 0 days remaining in my trial.

I installed the VM from scratch. So yes this is the first time BNA is installed.

I attempted the BNA install on another new windows host as it did the same thing. Ask for license right after login.

Can someone share a temp/trial license key with me?

I found the problem.

Because I select SMI-S only installation, I will not be able to login to BNA. So I select the full install package and everything works now...

 

However I am facing a new problem which is discovering fabric. I keep getting 'Connection Timed Out' when trying to discover.

well, as the word say "SMI Only" when selected, only the SMI will be installed and not the BNA.

 

about you connect timeout, is the BNA Server in same IP range as the switch ?

 

what is the switch Type / Modell and FOS release ?

Found the problem to be a firewall between BNA and switches.
Thanks for the support.
