Installation question - trial license

    Hi,

    I am trying to set up a CloudLinux / cPanel test environment. I have installed CloudLinux and registered for a trial licence. I have run rhnreg_ks --activationkey=..... and then rhnreg_ks --force and that seems that have registered my CloudLinux. If I visit the CloudLinux license manager portal I can see my server hostname in there and the server seems to be activated (Activations left = 0).

    After doing this I was able to install Perl which was preventing me from installing cPanel. Previously it would not allow me to do that because of a license complaint.

    My problem now is that when I try to install cPanel it complains that my CloudLinux is not registered. It reports: Validating that the system hostname <myhostname> is a FQDN.

    Then it reports ERROR: When you use CloudLinux you must register.
    It tells me to run /usr/sbin/clnreg_ks --force
    but I believe that command is for an IP based registration. I am trying to test it out on a trial key based registration.

    I see on the forums that this is supposed to work - many people have and do do this for testing.

    I have attached a screenshot.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Any help or hints would be very appreciated. I am out of ideas.

    Thanks

    HI,

    I'd recommend contacting CloudLinux about this issue. We can't really help you with that :)

    This is resolved. After contacting Cloud Linux support and purchasing a Cloud Linux license based on advice from cPanel support, I still had this issue.

    Cloud Linux eventually gave the following advice which resolved this:

    So it seems that I could have had this running with the trial license all along and that in an earlier attempt to get my trial Cloud Linux registered I had followed a thread which advised using the subscription manager plugin which I subsequently enabled. It seems enabling subscription-manager in Cloud Linux stops cPanel from installing.

    I was under the impression that an IP based license was a necessity based on this: https://documentation.cpanel.net/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=1507399
    but that is not the case.

    Hope this saves someone some time one day.
