How do you restart IBM Rational License Key Server without overwriting the license logs (lmgrd.log)?
License logs would get overwritten during the license server restart due to which you may lose the old license logging information.
- Create an options file with the following contents
DEBUGLOG +<location of the license.log>
- Deploy the options file to the license server machine
- Edit the license file and add the following information next to VENDOR ibmratl
VENDOR ibmratl OPTIONS=“path of the options file including the filename”
- Save the license file
- Restart the license server
Note: Over a period of time size of license logs would get increased if it’s not allowed to overwrite on license server restart.
