When you attempt to use a node-locked license key for an IBM Rational product through Terminal Server, you get Flexnet errors -103 and -15. This might also happen on a Remote Desktop client.
The full error message is as follows:
Failed to check out a key for Robot
Flexnet Error-103, Terminal server remote client not allowed
Flexnet Error- 15, cannot connect to license server
IBM Rational node-locked or authorized user licenses do not work on a Terminal server or Remote Desktop client.
Resolving the problem
You have two options.
- Use a floating license server.
- Run the Rational product on the computer locally, without Terminal Services or Remote Desktop.
