Issue Details

I received error The username is invalid when I try to add a new user at NI Volume License Manager (VLM).

Solution

NI Volume License Manager blocks a few usernames, for example: guest and administrator.

You also need to use the username without a domain. If the user's domain and username is DOMAIN1\jsmith, enter only jsmith.
