Error Received when evaluation license key entered

Hi Guys,

I am upgrading confluence cluster. I am also switching application servers. I have downloaded the standalone confluence cluster 3.1. I went to the localhost:8080 page where I was asked to enter in my license key. My license is no longer valid so I generated an evaluation license. I get the following error:

The license you entered is not a valid cluster license. You will need to install the non-clustered edition of Confluence to use this license.

Can someone tell me where I am going wrong. This on our test environment.

Thanks in advance

The online evalution license generation system only creates a non-clustered evaluation licenses. Please email our sales team at and they can generate a custered evaluation license for you. Please let them know how many nodes you will need.
