    Hi Molko,
    I suspect that installation on the node is NoMachine and not Workstation. Can you please check by running there nxserver –version? If it’s NoMachine, I think you have to uninstall it, remove the installation directory, and install the Workstation again.
    I hope this help 🙂



    for all:

    the key point was “remove the installation directory”. I have first tested the nomachine package on the node and then installed the enterprise package after uninstall the nomachine package with “apt-get purge nomachine”. You must additional delete the installation directory (the etc directory in NX) otherwise nomachine bears the old version status in mind.

    : thanks for the hint
