Floating License Server Help

The property is unknown (specific for MSI distribution)

Issue

[APP-WRAPPER] Failed to configure JetBrains License Service: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: com.jetbrains.bundle.exceptions.BadConfigurationException: The property <parameter> is unknown and could not be set by configure command

Reason

Attempt to configure FLS by

.\bin\license-server.bat configure ^ --<property> <value>

for Windows leads to "The property <property> is unknown and could not be set by configure command" and causes no change of configuration data.

Solution

  1. Stop FLS using the JetBrains License Service.

    Services Microsoft Management Console (MMC) (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > JetBrains License Service)

  2. Change to the FLS installation directory using the command line.

  3. Try to execute configuration command as follows:

    .\apps\license-server\bin\license-server.bat configure ^ --<property> <value>

  4. Start FLS using the JetBrains License Service.

If this doesn't help try to upgrade to recent version of FLS available at the download page.
