Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do you configure IBM Rational Telelogic based license keys in IBM Rational License Server 8.1.x?

Cause

From Rational License server 8.1.1, the individual Rational TL License server has been integrated to Rational License Server. License configuration is different with previous version as the result.

Answer

To configure the IBM Rational Telelogic based license keys once the Rational License Server 8.1.x is installed successfully:

  1. Navigate to the license.dat file downloaded for the IBM Rational Telelogic based products

  2. Copy the contents of the file starting from SERVER line through the END OF LICENSE KEYS line.

  3. Navigate to the <Installation directory of the license server/common> default installation directory is <C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalRLKS\Common>
    • If copied contents from license.dat file is permanent then open rational_server_perm.dat file in notepad and paste the copied below the package lines which already exists
    • If copied contents from license.dat file is temporary then open rational_server_temp.dat file in notepad and paste the copied below the package lines which already exists

  4. Ensure the hostname in the temporary license key contents being copied has the actual hostname of the machine where the license keys are being deployed in the SERVER line and not eval_host

  5. Navigate to Start > All Programs > IBM Rational > License tools
    • If temporary license keys being used then navigate to config services -> path to the license file -> click on browse and select rational_server_temp.dat from <Installation directory of the license server/common> and then click save service
    • If permanent license keys being used then navigate to config services -> path to the license file -> click on browse and select rational_server_perm.dat from <Installation directory of the license server/common> and then click save service

  6. Navigate to start/stop/reread

  7. Click on "stop server" and do not enable force shutdown

  8. Once stopped, re-start the server by clicking "start server".

  9. Then reread license file
