Question / Problem:
What could prevent the Machine ID field from populating with the necessary GUID? This issue prevents the license from activating.
Answer / Solution:
The failure of the Machine ID field to populate with the necessary GUID is caused by a permissions issue. After updating permissions per the "recommended permissions" the machine id populated and the license was able to be activated.
To resolve this issue:
- Configure the VRS file, folder, and registry key permissions as documented in Knowledge Base article #17527
- Once all permissions are updated verify machine ID populates.
- Activate license
