Local J2EE Engine keeps stopping w/ status "Stopped, License check failed"


My local J2EE engine keeps stopping after about 30 minutes or so with a status message of "Stopped, License check failed."

I've searched this forum and found some posts that refer to Notes about this issue. I've looked at those and it looks like if you've installed an evaluation copy then you have to go through some formal process to request a license key.

What I don't understand is WHY I have to do this when I installed NDS from a legal copy of the software. We are an SAP customer and received the Netweaver software directly from SAP.

We began a pilot of Netweaver about a month ago and installed Netweaver on a serever with no problem. We've been able to deploy code to the server but we also want to try the scenario where developers have a local J2EE engine installed so they can test their code before deploying to server's J2EE engine.

Given this scenario, do we need to different kind of license for the local J2EE instances or can we use the same license as for the server?

Thanks in advance for any help

    Hi David,

    the software you can always receive if you have got at least some service marketplace account. Nevertheless, you will have to license each installation, see

    You will find some installation your company has registered, and for this installation you can request the needed license keys for your different systems, which are offered in various "flavours", i.e. system types, e.g. test system, demo system, dev system and so on.

    For the licenses are bound to your hardware, you will have to request an explicit license for each installed system.

    Hope it helps

      The above link is helpfull in reinstalling the license. Here are some points to keep in mind.

      1) You cannot reinstall a TEMPORARY license

      2) When the J2EE ( jcontrol process) server is out of license, it remains in service for the first 30 minutes after its started.

      3)During this 30 minutes, you can use the VA to perform admin tasks. One of them could be to install a permanent license.

      4) Once you have a license file from the above website, start the J2EE server and confirm all process are running ( ie everyting is green on the MMC) launch the VA. Apply the license using the following path

      Server->Services->Licensing Adapter->Install License from file ( The "Install License from file" button is at the bottom of the screen on the right hand side)

    Hello David,

    I have the same problem with the license and I have not been able to achieve install the final key.

    The error is the same "Stopped, License check failed."

    When up the instance, it remains up for 30 minutes and then falls.

    Thank you can guide me in this regard.

    Thank you very much.

      Have you rechecked that license is applied sucessfully?

      It will shows you license is applies successfully. But when you in the license it will shows you the invalid. This might issue with the license. Try to apply license again.
