Post subject:  IOU License Issue - Host Not Found

I am getting the following error when trying to start up an IOU image in GNS3-1.0beat3.dev1:

=> Server notification: node IOU1: IOU has stopped running

IOU License Error: host not found in iourc file
License for key 7f05e8 required on host "wrwarwick-lm".
Obtain a license for this key and host from the following location:

http://wwwin-enged.cisco.com/ios/iou/license/index.html

Place in your iourc file as follows (see also the web page
for further details on iourc file format and location)

[license]
wrwarwick-lm = <16 char license>;

I have run the python script for generating licenses and have specified the correct location of the file in GNS. Does anyone know what the "7f05e8" is referring to? Is it my hostid (thought it was supposed to be 8 characters)?

I searched on the forums and google for the error but haven't really found anything for this message. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Just for reference, the following is the license file that was spit out by the Python script:

[license]
wrwarwick-lm = 67ad3e903d6fa6ad;

From everything that I can tell, this should be working. I cannot figure out why the IOU images are not recognizing my license file.

Well, I was able to get it to work. I changed my host name to wrwarwicklm (from wrwarwick-lm, but don't think the hyphen matters at all) and reran the script. I then added the file to ~/.iourc and all seems to be working.

Weird.
