SummaryWhen editing configuration on the Exinda, it might be possible not to start the optimizer due to a licensing misconfiguration.
OverviewWhen working on an Exinda appliance, any configuration change to the optimizer or objects in the device that are used by it will require the optimizer to be restaretd in order to apply the new changes. It is possible in some cases to try to turn on or restart the optimizer, and to have it eventually display a red background with the word "ERROR" printed on it, instead of the normally expected 'ON'. In this case, the optimizer will be turned off and nothing will be shaped. This error is a notification for the administrators.
CauseThe Exinda optimzier, every time it runs its start up process, will check with the license and compare the circuit bandwidth to that of the licensed limit on any active and valid license on the device. If the circuit bandwidth is less than the maximum licensed shaping / control bandwidth, then the optimizer will turn on. If it is not, then the Optimizer will show the word "Error" and the following will be noted in the log:
mgmtd: [mgmtd.WARNING]: The inbound bandwidth for circuit [circuit name] exceeds the licensed limit. You will not be able to start optimizer
ResolutionCheck the circuit bandwidth; if it has been changed recently, compare it to the licensed maximum and see if something has changed in the license information or an incorrect value has been entered in the circuit bandwidth.
Make sure following pattern is used for configuration.
For V6 > 1KB = 1024B
For V7 > 1KB = 1000B
