Pointing an IBM Rational Synergy server to get licenses from multiple License servers

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do I point my IBM Rational Synergy server to get licenses from more than one License server?

Answer

Unlike other Rational (Telelogic) products, Rational Synergy and Rational Change do not follow the TELELOGIC_LICENSE_FILE environment variable rule when it comes to pointing to different/multiple license servers.

Usually all the Rational (Telelogic) client applications read the value that has been set onto the TELELOGIC_LICENSE_FILE environment variable, that has been set locally, to pull out licenses from the specified hosts. Mentioned below is the deviation to this behavior, when it comes to Rational Synergy.

  • Until Rational Synergy 6.5 SP2 -> The Synergy server would pickup licenses based on the value that has been set on the license_data.txt in the CCM_HOME/etc directory.
  • Since Rational Synergy 7.0 -> Information about which license server would have to be contacted is now available in the system_info.txt file of the CCM_HOME/etc directory.

Either way, the content of the license server pointer should have the following format:

For Microsoft Windows servers:

<port#>@<license_server1>;<port#>@<license_server2>

For UNIX servers:

<port#>@<license_server1>:<port#>@<license_server2>

The difference between the 2 environments is the delimiter: Microsoft Windows uses ";" as the delimiter, while UNIX required ":".
