VMWare SRM – When trying to protect a VM – There are not enough licenses installed to perform the operation

So there were plenty of licenses, what else can be wrong?


Within the log files @ C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager\Logs I saw the following:

2016-04-06T15:38:31.479-05:00 [09472 warning ‘Licensing’] Unable to decode license ”: INVALID_SERIAL
2016-04-06T15:38:31.480-05:00 [07916 info ‘Licensing’] Initializing with license key:
2016-04-06T15:38:31.480-05:00 [07916 verbose ‘PropertyProvider’] RecordOp ASSIGN: asset, DrLicenseManager
2016-04-06T15:38:31.480-05:00 [07916 warning ‘Licensing’] The license key ” expired on 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z
2016-04-06T15:38:31.481-05:00 [09240 warning ‘Licensing’] This SRM instance is no longer in compliance. 41 4(s) are not licensed for protection.

In the web client under home > licensing > solutions I found something that didn’t exactly refer to SRM but I assigned the SRM key to it anyways.  After assigning this key the problem was resolved.
