Error description

  • In the DDL topic "Creating the site preparation file and folder"
    (found here:
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/spssdc/v6r0m1/topic/com
    .spss.install_server/siteprep.htm) it states:
    
    "Note: The site preparation file must identify servers by name
    not by IP address. The names must be actual machine names and
    not domain names, aliases, or any other name. If the servers are
    not part of a domain you will need to create a hosts file on
    each server so that each IP address is associated with a name
    that you can use in the site preparation file. If you use IP
    addresses, you will not be able to enter the server license code
    when you use the site preparation file to install the IBMᄅ SPSSᄅ
    Data Collection Interviewer Server services on the servers."
    
    So the installation instructions cite using the siteprep.ini
    file for licensing, yet version 6.0.1 does not use license
    codes.
