  • If the SPLM license server is not reachable during login to Teamcenter, the received error message "Error attaching to FLEXlm" of type "InvalidCredentialsException" is now classified as a connection problem to Teamcenter and will be handled as a failover reason.
  • Failover: The configured and calculated timeout values for the automatic switch into failover are now written in the logfile if the automatic swtich is enabled.
  • After login to Teamcenter additional information like site id and TCServerLocale are written into SFC logfile after the name of the assigned tcserver.syslog file.
