Error description

  • Access to IBM Rational ClearQuest or the special Unix Rational
    Lifecycle Package (RLP) keys will be blocked if both license
    types are served on the same license server. This also applies
    to ClearQuest and Rational Lifecycle Package with ClearCase
    (RLPwCC) keys.
    
    The special licenses needed to allow access to RLP/RLPwCC
    products on Unix hosts have an incorrect version ID, which is
    the same version ID as the 'classic' ClearQuest license. Since
    the license server only stores ONE set of license metadata for
    each 'version' of a given license, the first license for a given
    product version in the file is the one that will be used.
    
    As a result, the following conditions are possible:
    
    Standard ClearQuest license above special RLP license in license
    file: No ClearQuest host will be able to access the keys.
    
    RLP ClearQuest license above standard license in the license
    file: No 'standard' ClearQuest licenses can be checked out.
    
    THere is no workaround at this time.
    
    
    When attempting to reduce the number of IBM Rational License Key
    Server hosts, combining the special Unix keys for with existing
    ClearQuest licenses will block access to one or the other set of
    keys
