This article describes the issue when you get an error after installing SAM saying that the license of the Additional Polling Engine is already in use.


All versions of SAM


The cause of why the additional poller grabs two licenses is currently unknown. Our Development team is investigating this issue.


  1. Deactivate both licenses via the License Manager.
  2. Wait for the licenses to refresh in the customer portal to show not activated.
  3. Enter the license again once it is not active.
  4. Re-run the Configuration Wizard.
