Having to re-register after every reboot

I’m running AMP on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS x86_64. Every time the physical machine restarts, AMP breaks. I have to manually run:

ampinstmgr stop ADS01
ampinstmgr reactivate AlexMinecraftSurvival
ampinstmgr start ADS01

If I don’t, the server refuses to start. This is rapidly going to become an issue because it says I have already used 3 of my 5 license keys (in all actuality, I’ve only used 1). Can someone reset my activation count and more importantly, how can I fix this?

How is your server setup? Is AMP running in a VM? Any physical changes to the system could trigger this. I believe that network changes can also do it, which is even more common on VMs as the MAC may not be static, invalidating the activation.

It’s running natively (no docker or vm). That actually could partially explain it though. The server was having network issues with the crummy usb WiFi adapter, so I bought a PCIe WiFi card. That actually made the issue worse and I went back to the original one. It was still awful and I gave up and moved the machine to a location with Ethernet. Those were the only times I’ve rebooted the machine since installing AMP, so the MAC changing with each NIC change may be the cause

I'm not sure of the exact triggers to the problem, but this seems plausible.

I would be tempted to reboot the machine normally without making any changes to see whether it still occurs.

I just restarted the machine and it was fine. I doubt any more changes will need to happen. Regardless, is it possible to get my licenses back?

Licences don't get burned. You pay to have a given number of instances in total. You don't lose them if you need to reactivate.

Ahh perfect, thanks!
