Vectorworks Site Protection on Mac quits overnight- ASH check failed




I recently installed a VW server on MacOS 10.15, and it stops at 1:05 AM.


I get a notification that "Vectorworks Site Protection Server is now Stopped" with alternating suggestions that "License server process is not running", or "There is an activation or dongle problem."


The activation is fine when I restart the server.



The logs below show the VectorWorks licenses unloading over night from what’s logged as an ASH check.

This looks like it was a problem with the prior version of the RLM license server:


“ P526 - server incorrectly rejects ASH keys at midnight

For ASH licenses, even though there is a daily tolerance, the server will reject the license on the first midnight reread if the transaction with the activation server fails.

This is fixed in v13.1BL1

Fix affects: server"

But my server says: RLM software versionv14.0 (build:2)
