The server license files show up as valid for version 6.80 on the connection manager but show as only valid to 6.73 on the server general status window. Any ideas as to what the issue is?

Also, why is this and other ClearSCADA sites like hidden. It's so hard to find stuff.

1. Server license file information is shown on the Server Status tool and in the license dialog you see when you right-click the server icon.
2. Client license file information is shown in the Client Config tool.

Server and client license files are (usually) different files, because the client connection values in the server file are the # of concurrent clients which connect, and the client connection values in the client file are the # of databases a client can connect to.

You only need a client license allocated either by from the server file or from the client file.

The Client Config tool has a checkbox per connection that lets you choose which.

The two servers and all the clients should be using the File based mode. The connection manager is only for client ViewX licenses?

Looks like adding the LIC file again to the right-click on the server icon license details did the trick.
