IBM Rational Asset Analyzer (RAA) has been installed on one machine, and the Rational License Key Server (RLKS) has been installed on a separate machine to serve floating or named-user floating licenses. However, the RAA user interface indicates that it is using a trial license, or indicates that the license is disabled.
The RAA user interface shows that a trial license is in use, or that the license is disabled, when licenses have been imported onto a remote RLKS machine.
In RAA's RaaRestWar.0.0.log file, the following message may be displayed:
[2011/06/03 16:59:11:871] WARNING: Wasn't able to check out license for user [raauser1]. License error=[Cannot find license file.
The license files (or license server system network addresses) attempted are
listed below. Use LM_LICENSE_FILE to use a different license file,
or contact your software provider for a license file.
