KRE offline activation question about the num of RE running sessions

Hi, I am currently using a free trial account and I am trying to get KRE running on a VM which does not have internet access due to security reasons.
I am getting the following error when I try to activate KRE
Activating…
Start activating offline…
Search for valid offline licenses in folder: path-to-the-licenses-file
Start checking license: KRE_my_machine_ID.lic
KRE_my_machine_ID.lic is valid.
The number of valid offline licenses: 1
The number of Runtime Engine running sessions: 3
License quota exceeded
Offline activation failed.
I know the Node-Locked License allows only one execution session
My question is what is “running sessions” and more importantly how I can reduce the number of it?

Just some additional information:

  • I have only one license in the licenses folder
  • the KRE is a fresh install I haven’t done anything, everything remains unchanged after I untar the package
  • Java version: 1.8.0_242 / Local OS: Linux 64bit / KRE version 7.2.4
  • I’ve also tried KRE 7.3.1 but the activation still failed, the following is the log from KRE 7.3.1:
