As you say, SDL Tridion 2013 SP1 now comes with the Import/Export Webservice as part of the Core Content Manager (CM) installer.
Running the Content Porter 2013 SP1 installer against an Tridion 2013 SP1 Content Manager just makes the Content Porter client icon available within the Tools menu, and does not install any additional functionality.
Have you installed Hotfix TT CM_2013.1.0.88313 - Cumulative hotfix? This fixes an issues when you have more than one person in the TRUSTEES table.
Remove the <Tridion Root>\bin\.ez20ck file to be sure and restart everything
Are you sure it's not your cd_licenses.xml which has expired also?
I believe the license is usually linked to the machine name, so if you reformat the server, and install it using the same name, you shouldn't see any problems.
If you wish to change the machine name, you should contact Tridion Support, they will be able to issue you a new license file.
Note that, if you change any hardware (like adding processors,...) your ...
There was a SDL Tridion Developer License program (that I created and was in charge of) for a few years, but this program was discontinued in 2020.
I think the only way to get a developer-style license today is to contact Customer Support at https://gateway.sdl.com and for that you may need an existing support contract.
PS: My current position at SDL is in ...
The license is typically bound to a hostname and number of CPU Cores, if your new machine(s) has a different name or different number of CPU Cores then indeed this won't work and you'll need a new license file.
So, either rename the machines, or ask for a new license file. If it is a license violation issue, I am pretty certain it will be logged as such in ...
The Content Manager server prerequisites are covered in the online documentation (login required) here: http://docs.sdl.com/LiveContent/content/en-US/SDL%20Tridion%20full%20documentation-v1/GUID-A6CBE401-9EB7-4534-9362-4B15B19B290E
(They are probably far more comprehensive than an answer you would get here.)
You may also want to check whether you have a ...
As specified in the processor info, your machine has 8 logical processors. That's more than allowed by your license.
The processor info also states that there are 4 Cores. That probably means that HyperThreading is enabled. This is something you may be able to disable in the BIOS/UEFI settings.
This is licensing issue, you seems to be using different Machine's CD license / Wrong license file , Get in touch with SDL for new license.
you can find license @ applicationDirectory\bin\config\cd_licenses.xml
you can refer this answer for details.
Below are my suspects,
It looks like you are accessing Content Porter on the server itself, may be some process are trying to access the license file
License file might be mapped in two places
Wrong license file placed but by renaming with the actual name
You can also try to disable some of your cores in Windows:
Type in msconfig and click on OK
In Boot tab select Advanced options
Select number of cores you want to use during Windows start
Restart your PC
As nuno and @rick mentioned logical processors also counts so you have 8 processors and license is valid for 4.
Not sure about legality(SDL) but This is nice article where you can follow steps to disable Intel Hyper-threading in HP based BIOS.
As already mentioned by everybody, you have 8 logical processors and the license is valid for 4 processors, that is the cause of error.
This situation can arise, when the machine that you are having has two processors (in your case one processor 3.2 GHz, and other processor 3193 MHz) with 4 cores which will translate to 8 logical processor.
You will have ...
I had the same issue after removing 'old' accounts from the server. The Content Manager snap-in was also unavailable, so this article pointed me in the right direction: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10017972/content-manager-configuration-snap-in-could-not-read-configuration-item.
I think I removed the account which ran the installer. My solution:
What are the COM+ and impersonation users running?
This is very likely a permission issue for either of the two accounts in need to be able to access the Tridion.ContentManager.config file (the "Git" in the error message stands out), which is encrypted. So this is about either access to the file itself, or access to the folders containing it.
To allow a(...
Prerequisite for that link is, you should have license. License is not availble for trial/free use. You have to contact the sales people
