Error description

  • When IBM Rational License Key Server (RLKS) v8.1.1/v8.1.2 is
    installed on a Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2003 machine with
    IP v6 installed, but disabled, it appears that RLKS v8.1.1 is
    configured to use IP v6.
    
    This is corresponding to the current Flexlm limitation which is
    that Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server do not support Dual Mode
    addressing due to limited Dual Networking Stack support on these
    operating systems.
    However, IBM Rational License InfoCenter description is
    misleading and gives the impression that IP v6 'enabled' will
    make IP v6 work. 'For IPv6, the IPv6 stack must be enabled on
    Windows before you install the Rational License Key Server:
    'http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/rational/v0r0m0/index.

    Description of IPv6 module License Key Server installation
    is misleading in InfoCenter.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The documentation has now been rectified to:
    For IPv6, the IPv6 stack must be enabled on Windows before
    you install the Rational License Key Server. At the same
    time, on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 operating
    systems, the IPv4 based license server can be contacted by
    IPv4 FlexEnabled clients only if IPv6 stack has been
    un-installed before installing the license server.
