invalid license key for bamboo 2.5


Today we downloaded bamboo-2.5.war from this specific version).

Our company has developer license, I enter it - error msg: "The license key you entered was invalid."

Besides we generated for test purposes new evaluation license - the same error as a result.

Could you pls give me some advice on what should I do?

Bamboo is installed into tomcat.

After version 5.0.1 Bamboo is no longer released in WAR format. Onward from that version Bamboo only supports the bundled Tomcat version. That said, I don't believe that other users will run into the same problem with this version of Bamboo.

Nevertheless, it is not difficult to see other users facing the same issue, even with the latest versions of Bamboo. So if you are getting the same error message after trying to enter your license key, please ensure that there are no leading or trailing spaces in your paste of the license. This usually happens when copy&paste inserts some extra characters.
