Team Speak Server won't recognize licensekey (expired)

Hey there,

Our TeamSpeak Server can’t recognize our License when starting.
We have a Sponsorship License with 128 Slots but can only set 32 because it won’t recognize the License.
It all worked fine for a year (with 128 slots) until the license expired and we had to get na new one from TeamSpeak.

The log states:

PS: I censored the License ID - There is a number there!

Thank you in advance.

Your whole post explains why the server does not accept the license.
It is expired and you can no longer use that one.

That’s all i can say from technical side.
Why it is expired is a question for our “Sponsorship Enquiry”


Hey Chris,

well that is the problem - I wrote with Dave from Sponsoring and he gave me this license as a new one today.
Its a freshly generated one.
It can’t be expiredz

I don’t know what to do anymore

As i wrote i can not say from technical side. The license file you use is expired. Maybe you are still using the old one :man_shrugging:t4:.

**Edit **

  • Make sure you replace the file wit the new one.
  • You may open it with an editor to check the end date (do not save the file or you may destroy formatting)
