I just finished authorizing my sever licence and went on to update the ArcSDE enterprise geodatabase license, when i try to upload the ECP file that was generated i get the warning that it is an "Invalid authorization file".
Here are the steps i followed
log on to the machine running AGS
Use the Software Authorization tool to authorize my sever using the provsioning file (prvc)
Navigate to the ESRI\License10.4\sysgen folder
copy and rename the keycodes file with the ECP extension
copy the ECP file to my desktop
connect to the database using my established admin connection
upload the ECP
and get the "Invalid authorization file"
i even tried restarting my server.
and here is what is authorized by my prvc file
When i log on to ArcGIS Sever Manger and check the ArcGIS Software Authorization tab it show the software as not being updated despite being told that it was successful
