License error when installing Rational Publishing Engine 2.1

Jorge Alarcon (411122) | asked Jun 27 '16, 9:23 p.m.
I am getting the following error when trying to test my new RPE 2.1.0 installation:

Error 400: RPENG license checkout failed. Error is: Connection timed out: connect

I've make sure that
TELELOGIC_LICENSE_FILE enviroment variable is on the OS with value 27000@<server>.

Can you please advice?

Hi Jorge,
Could you share the environment details on which you are trying to set up RPE.

I assume you are trying to setup RPE 2.1 on RHEL with WAS ND as the Application Server +DB2? ( based on the other recent query w.r.t RPE 2.1  on )

My suggestion would be
- Create a TELELOGIC_LICENSE_FILE env variable in Websphere Application Server( incase it doesn't consider the system env variable) under Application Server->server1(Profile_Name)>Process Definition-> Environment Entries and restart the WAS Server.

-Check the License server details under $HOME/.flexlmrc in and make sure that the value of TELELOGIC_LICENSE_FILE is pointing to the valid license server.

Please restart browser and access http://server:port/rpeng again. Also, make sure DGAAS_URL property is set (to http://server:port/dgaas) in Administer -> Runtime Variables.
BASE_URL should be http://server:port/rpeng.

The problem was actually on the License Key Server, I had other licenses on that server and somehow it was messing up with the ones for RPE
