Hi i am running weblogic 8.1 on a unix server. I currently had 4 managed servers running fine and started two more today. Unfortunately people started getting denied with a "The server is not licensed for this operation.connect rejected, the server license allows connections from only 5 unique IP addresses. When i check my license.bea file it appears to be for only a developer license, which would make sense. The part I'm confused on is why my other 4 managed servers never receive this message. Don't they all use the same license file? They are all in the same directory?

Looks like your Weblogic install is unlicensed, or at least you haven't installed the license file. You need to stick the file license.bea in the BEA_HOME directory.

The 5 IP limit is always enforced by Weblogic when running in development mode.

It's also advisable to use a reverse web proxy in front of the Weblogic managed servers.
