Temporary activation. License already in use on a different system



Hi I've upgraded my systems to Windows 2019. My Master kept the same name, but the failover didn't.

After changing the name of my master, I get the warning that my license is in "temporary activation"

Also my FAILOVER node won't connect to my cluster anymore..

Please help

Best regards.
