Trusted activation is failed with Error: API function 60041 failed, result 51404
When trying to activate a composite transaction with appcomptranutil the following error may be generated:
appcomptranutil -new -transaction https://<HostName>:8888/flexnet/services/ActivationService -activate <ActID> Server https://<HostName>:8888/flexnet/services/ActivationService, comms type SOAP Re-using identical stored request, sequence number 41 Status: 4, Creating request Status: 5, Request created Status: 6, Context created Status: 0, Error ERROR: API function 60041 failed, result 51404
Additional - the last element of the tuple is the detail error (e.g. comms) ERROR: API function failed (0,0,0)
Retry (1 of 3)? Enter "yes" or "no": no
Mostly this error will be generated due to network communication between client and License server, either the HTTPS (certificate is not valid or not installed) or the port number is not open in the firewall or the hostname (FQDN if we use it in the URL) is not pingable.
1. Try to check with HTTP in the URL as an alternative way to activate
