Organizer/License Check

Online Activation

Description

Issue ID

·Unable to use the Online license activation when the Solution is installed in SharePoint 2013 Server/WFE.

NOTE:  This issue only occurs in SharePoint 2013 environments, when either the Organizer or License Check solutions are installed, and the environment is specifically configured to use TLS 1.1 or 1.2. While Content Matrix v.8.6.0.1 has been upgraded to use .NET 4.6 to resolve this issue, the Organizer and License Check solutions will still operate in the same runtime as the SharePoint environment. For SharePoint 2013, that means the solutions will use .NET 4.5.  Since .NET 4.5 does not handle the communication between versions of TLS 1.1 and up natively, both Organizer and License Check will run into issues trying to run the Online license Activation back to the Metalogix Servers.

WORKAROUND:  Activate the license by using the Offline License Check option.
