Hi -

I am using APP on an Ubuntu VM (Proxmox bare-metal host). I am being asked every time to enter my license info.. See my current 3 licenses on the same machine (The RAM varies depending on how much RAM I need in my VM environment and it varies depending on my other VMs).

How can this be fixed? Thanks!

Computer 1:
RAM(GB) : 63
Operating System : linux
User directory : homeantoine

Computer 2:
RAM(GB) : 150
Operating System : linux
User directory : homeantoine

Computer 3:
RAM(GB) : 172
Operating System : linux
User directory : homeantoine

 

APP : 1.083.2 Linux DEB-64bits

Hi @antoine,

Our security in machine recognition for license security works with the amount of RAM used. So if you keep changing RAM for the VM, you will need to re-activate the license for sure. I can not change that easily. The amount of RAM that you are using is very high as well. Simply set it it fixed for the APP VM on 64 GB or 32GB ?

APP was definitely not designed to run on Virtual Machines because it already runs on Windows, Linux and MacOS which are usually the host of a virtual machine. And I would advise against running it in a virtual machine because performance will always be less than running it direcly on a host.

Hi Mabula! Great to hear from you again. Congrats on pushing the latest updates.

I fixed the issue by removing the "ballooning" memory settings in my VM host to grew depending on the VMs RAM usage. All good now after a restart, the RAM licensing issue is fixed. 

Just for your education 🙂 This VM system is not a regular VM application like you are used to have on your computer for emulation. It is a "bare metal" virtualization platform like the ones used on Amazon/Google servers and gives 98-99% of RAW performance to the VMs... Coupled with a 64 cores 256GB Ram Server and 100TB NAS for high volume astro-imaging generating 10GB data every night, It gives me and my team full remote access to both Linux VM and Windows VM as each have its pros and cons for Astro and imaging applications.

Excellent @antoine, happy to hear that you solved it 😉 and thanks for the compliment !

Yes I fully understand the hardware that you are using 😉 Please also consider the fact that more than 99% of all APP users worldwide will not have such a system 😉 to their disposal. It must be a great pleasure to be working with such a system though 🙂 !
