Prime (formerly known as Zing) fails to startup due to license check.
The following error is seen when running the zing-licensed command (ZST is required):
$ zing-licensed --verify
ERROR: License File:/etc/zing/license, Zing AZUL license signing verification failed
The license file (default location: /etc/zing/license) has a checksum embedded within the signature. If the file is modified in any way, the checksum will not match and the verification will fail. Some causes for failure can be:
- Your Internal security software/procedures can embed URLs within the license file during transfer (eg. URL Defence). For example, the 2nd line of the license file may have "http://urldefence.com/" inserted prior to "www.azul.com"
- Microsoft Windows editors can inadvertently convert CR/LF characters in the license file, thus altering the file
- Any manual editing of the file will invalidate the checksum
Revert any changes made to the file and try again.
Alternatively, use a compression/archive utility (eg. winzip) on the license file to prevent any changes during transit.
