IBM Rational License Key Server version 8.1.2

Downloadable files


This document describes how to download and install IBM® Rational License Key Server, version 8.1.2.

Download Description

In order to use most IBM Rational software products, a specific license key is required. Product licenses are acquired through the IBM License Key Center and installed on one or more Rational License Key Servers to serve and manage licenses in the enterprise.

The Rational License Key Server includes an administration tool called License Key Administrator or LKAD (available for Windows only) to enter or import license keys, and change your license configuration. On Unix, a set of system administration commands are available to perform similar administrative tasks. Details on LKAD and system administration commands are also available in the Rational Common Licensing Information Center.


For up to date information about using IBM Rational License Key Server, see the Rational Common Licensing Information Center .

Installation Instructions

For instructions on how to configure the Rational License Key Server and install it on Windows or Unix platforms, see Configure The Rational License Key Server, in the Rational Common Licensing Information Center.
