Error description

  • If you have IBM Rational Developer z (RDz) V9.1, IBM Rational
    Team Concert (RTC) V5.0.1 and IBM Rational Software Architect
    (RSA) V9.1 installed in a shell-shared environment using
    floating licensing and you open RDz while there is a repository
    connection to RTC, a RSA license will be checked-out from the
    license server, even though RSA itself is not opened.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Install RSA, RDz, RTC into a shell shared environment
    
    2. Apply floating licenses
    
    3. Open RDz
    
    4. Establish a connection to RTC
    
    5. Close & reopen RDz
    
    6. Examine the "lmgrd.log" file to review the license check outs
    
    Expected Result: No license for RSA is checked out, as RSA was
    not opened.
    
    Actual Result: A license for RSA is checked out, despite not
    having opened RSA.
    

Local fix

  • There is no known workaround at this time.

    not opened.
    
    Actual Result: A license for RSA is checked out, despite not
    having opened RSA.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The license check has been changed to only be activated when the
    component itself is being used and not when the workbench is
    started.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.3 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
