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

 

arcsdeserver
svrenterprise
arcgisserver
schematicssvr
capacitysvr_4
svradvanced
3dserver
spatialserver
networkserver
imageextserver
interopserver
jtxserver
geostatserver
highwayssvr
datareviewersvr
geoeventsvr
portal_50

 

any

thoughts?

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
