Please be advised that as a result of vendor delays, users of a small number of Windows Systems at Berkeley Lab may see an error message about an illegal license on the WIndows logon screen, starting on Friday September 17, 2021.
The message will say “Unlicensed version – usage is illegal”, although there is no illegal or unlicensed software on the system. The message is related to software called LinOTP, which is used to manage Windows logins. Berkeley Lab IT is actively updating the LinOTP license key on all workstations, but some systems may not have the new license key installed prior to its expiration.
You can safely ignore the message and log in as normal, or you can contact the IT Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org) to ensure the license is updated as quickly as possible.
