Hi,
a few days ago I've upgraded my previous Alfresco 3.4d community installation to the latest 4.0.

After the installation I've found the following error message in the log file:
Unable to retrieve License information from Alfresco: 500

The following exception is logged directly in front of the error message:

2011-10-08 12:13:03,141  INFO  [web.site.EditionInterceptor] [http-8080-1] Unable to retrieve License information from Alfresco: 500

The exception is thrown when the api is called to determine the Alfresco edition (from tcpdump: GET /alfresco/s/api/admin/restrictions?guest=true).
If I enter the URL in the browser I also get an error. If I leave off the "?guest=true" parameter I get a valid JSON result from the server.

Currently guest login is enabled in alfresco-global.properties.

Anyone else has this problem? Any hints what I can do against it (except filing a bug ;)).

Thanks in advance,

Jochen
