Error: "This server is not licensed to connect to..." After Restarting Tableau Server and Attempting to Connect to Data Sources
Published: 15 Dec 2016 Last Modified Date: 28 Jul 2017
After opening a view or attempting to connect to a specific data source from Tableau Server, the following error might occur
"This server is not licensed to connect to <data source name>.
Tableau Server 10.0.2 and later versions
Ensure that each service name have been correctly set up, particularly Flexnet and Tableau Server License Manager. See Verify Tableau Service Settings for more information.
Check that the Tableau Server Run As User has full control permission to the Tableau Server data directory, located by default at C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server.
From Tableau Server 10.0.2 and later versions, the installation process sets the Flexnet service to 'Automatic' instead of 'Manual'; and the Tableau Server License Manager is set to 'Automatic (Delayed Start)' instead of 'Automatic.'
