Unable to add node with expired SAM evaluation license

Updated December 8, 2017


If you have an evaluation license for SAM and the license has expired, you cannot add a node.


  • SAM, all versions


SAM evaluation expired and adding a node will not get past the Add application monitors step.



  1. Uninstall the SAM module from Control Panel> Programs and features.
  2. Ensure the JMX Bridge service is stopped in the Orion Service Manager.
  3. Run the configuration wizard if it does not start automatically.
