Logon not possible (error in license check)

Updated May 19, 2018

Hello SAP Experts,

I am getting error message 00 179 "Logon not possible (error in license check)" with following conditions:

  • When you would like to logon except for SAP* account,
  • background job fail many times,
  • All ABAP work processes throw an error in their traces.

Please follow the steps below in order to regenerate this issue:

  • User tries to login to the system and gets an error message in the status bar; In some cases, the SAP* login is allowed.
  • Background job keeps failing with same error;
  • The error also throws in work process traces (dev_w*):
