Error description

  • When attempting to import a new license file using the IBM
    Rational License Key Server (RLKS) Administration and Reporting
    Tool, the license import may fail with the following error if
    the host ID used for licensing contains leading 0's:
    'The License file, being imported , contains illegal
    host-id/hostname. Generate the file again and import.'
    
    Importing the license file using the Rational License Key
    Administrator works correctly, as does manually editing the
    license server's license files to add the license key.
