Error description

  • Token license checkout for multiple IBM Middleware products when
    the following conditions are true:
    1) Multiple FlexNet standalone servers and/or license server
    triads are in use.
    2) the FIRST license server in the server list has IBM Rational
    Common Licensing point product licenses ONLY.
    3) The other servers in the list do not serve non-token-based
    licenses.
    

Local fix

  • Move the non-token license server to the END of the list, and
    token licenses will check out correctly.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users who have configured both Floating and Token Licenses   *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If the client configuration of license servers has a License *
    * Server, which is serving Token-based licenses alone, placed  *
    * before a License Server, which is serving Floating licenses  *
    * alone, the requests for obtaining the Tokens may fail.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The license library has been enhanced to work correctly
    irrespective of the order of the license servers in the client
    configuration. The fix is available in RCL 8.1.5.
