License invalid after migration to another Server

we just migrated our Teamspeak Server this weekend. It’s a small server with the free license. Unfortunately, we get an error which tells us that our license is invalid, even though we haven’t changed a thing. It’s a server with the free license and only the new instance is running.

Is there something we need to do? Last time it worked without any problems.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards

Update the server to latest version to ensure you got latest license with a valid date.


Thanks Chris!
We are on 3.13.6, i forgot to mention that. So we should be on the latest version. The server is running Debian Bullseye stable.

We’ve found this in our logs:

Maybe that helps?

That log does not show much. The part of the license was cut off.


Sorry about that.
This is should be the complete startup log.

Hmm, there is nothing wrong in the log.

No error or anything about the invalid license. The Warning is normal and tells you what the server does instead.


Oh, ok.
But we still get the following warning when connecting to the server:

The server was flagged by our piracy department. Whoever owns or owned this machine did something against the license agreement.

To get of the list you need to contact our piracy department. There is nothing we can do here on forum.
