  1. You had an older build of Acronis Snap Deploy installed;
  2. You downloaded the new build and updated Acronis License Server;
  3. You try to update Acronis OS Deploy Server and receive the following error message after specifying Acronis License Server's address, even though it contains all the licenses:

    Product licenses are not available or the license is intended for another product edition. Check if Acronis License Server is installed and serial numbers for Server Edition are imported. For more information, see Installation Guide. To use trial versions of the software you must register with Acronis. Click the "Register" button below. After that you will receive the message with trial serial number.


The issue is caused by the corruption in Acronis License Server's database.
