too many users logged on already

I have a cluster of two Tru64 5.1B (rev 2650) and nobody but root can telnet or ssh to a product node due to error msg:

Too many users logged on already.
Try Later.

But I have only:
$ ps -fe|wc -l
208

The other node works OK.

HELP!!!

Re: too many users logged on already

This problem usually occurs when the Licenses expire. Ensure that you have updated the license PAKs.

Re: too many users logged on already

Thx, how to do it? And why my other node works without any problem?

Re: too many users logged on already

Every node has its own licenses. I am not sure that it is license problem. But do:

# lmf list

Re: too many users logged on already

BL is right, it usually is a license issue. You need one OSF-BASE license for each CPU you have in the Alpha. Make sure you have the appropriate number of OSF-BASE licenses and that they're not expired.

# lmf list full
Check the 'Key Termination Date' field.

Re: too many users logged on already

All fiesds "Key termination date:" are void :-(, "Licence status: active", "Cancellation date:" are void.

Any more idea, pls!

Re: too many users logged on already

How many CPUs in that node?
Do you have a OSF-BASE license for each CPU?

Solution

Re: too many users logged on already

You have 2 OSF-BASE licenses so I assume this is a dual CPU Alpha. To verify:

# /usr/sbin/psrinfo

You could try this to see if it helps:

# lmf reset

Re: too many users logged on already

You are GREAT Vic! Thx a lot!
the solution was: lmf reset
(yes, it is a bi-CPU machine, but I don't undestand what have been happened).
