I have a Ubuntu 14.x server on Cloud and I installed ArcGIS for Server Enterprise (Linux) 10.3.1. Since it is non-gui environment I did it on Terminal.
The product I downloaded: ArcGIS for Server Enterprise (Linux) 10.3.1.
The provisioning file I created is for: ArcGIS for Server Advanced Enterprise 10 - 10.3.1
During the authorization step, it warned me that my provisioning file (.prvc) is not valid. Thus, I tried arcgis/server/tools/authorizationSoftware to authorize my software using following commands with also failure.
./authorizationSoftware -f licence.prvc
./authorizationSoftware -f licence.prvc -e firstname.lastname@example.org
The licence is fresh and never installed to somewhere else. I couldn't get support from esri.
My provisioning file looks like this:
//Provision Provision ID=XXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXXX
Comment= // User Information
// Features and authorization numbers
ArcGIS Server=ECP NUMBER
