Hi all, this is a PSA about KB 1014288 - The Laserfiche Directory Server's primary license automatic renewal is not successful. While this information is posted on the Support site, I'm cross-posting it here for visibility.
Who is affected: Any customer using LFDS 10.4.4, 10.4.5 or 11.0 with any subscription component to their license (e.g. Rio w/ Participant users)
Issue: The primary license autorenewal feature (based on expiration) fails. The Automatic Renewal Status always displays Unsuccessful.
Impact: Partial to full system outages when a customer's license expires and does not auto-renew
Recommended action: Apply the appropriate patch for LFDS 10.4.5 or 11.0 from KB 1014288, which involves swapping out LFDS.exe for an updated version. If the customer is on LFDS 10.4.4 (for which no patch is available), upgrade them to 10.4.5 or 11.0 and then apply the patch. This hotfix will likely be incorporated into the main packages next "patch Tuesday" in June.
If you know of affected customers (or are one), please let them know that they should patch their systems at the next convenient opportunity or prior to primary license expiration, whichever comes first.
You can check in Laserfiche Directory Server under Settings > General to see if subscription primary license automatic renewal is enabled. If you have a subscription license and do not have this feature enabled, we recommend enabling it (after patching).
