Troubleshooting an invalid license error in inSync 5.1


A valid inSync license appears as invalid. On the inSync License tab of the Server Settings the license status shows as "The license is not valid for this server id."


The inSync server license depends upon the Server ID, which is generated based on the server MAC address. Any changes made to the server's network interface, hardware or a motherboard replacement could result in a change of Server ID and invalidate the existing license.



For resolution please report this to and attach following details:

  • Licensed Server ID (mentioned under Support Document provided with the License).
  • Details of the license as seen by navigating to inSync Server Management Console > Manage > Settings > inSync License. This shows the existing license information and the new Server ID.
  • Copy of old license if possible.

Once the license change is approved by your Druva account manager, the Support Team will generate and send you the new license.
