Error description

  • Attempts to import a license file to an IBM Rational License Key
    Server using the new License Key Server Administration and
    Reporting console may report the following error:
    
    License file import contains hostid/hostname. Please regenerate
    the file, and import.
    
    To date, this issue has only been reported when both the console
    server and the license server agent are running on systems using
    Japanese as the OS primary language.
    
    The license files can be imported directly on the license server
    using the standard methods of:
    - Importing using the Rational License Key Administrator tool on
    Windows hosts.
    - Editing the license files directly.
