1 LICENSE

The License Management utility (LICENSE) is a DCL-level interface to the License Management Facility (LMF). LMF provides tools for managing software license information in the License Database and controlling the loading of licenses registered there. This database is located in SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB. Most Digital software products require license registration as part of the normal product installation before users can access the product. The LICENSE commands are: LICENSE CANCEL LICENSE LIST LICENSE COPY LICENSE LOAD LICENSE CREATE LICENSE MODIFY LICENSE DELETE LICENSE MOVE LICENSE DISABLE LICENSE REGISTER LICENSE ENABLE LICENSE START LICENSE ISSUE LICENSE UNLOAD 2 Usage_Summary To use the License Management utility (LICENSE), enter a LICENSE command and subcommand at the DCL prompt ($). For example, you can enter short commands on one line: $ LICENSE LIST /FULL VAX-VMS/AUTHORIZATION=USA12345 Or you can enter long command strings followed by a hyphen (-) before pressing Return each time: $ LICENSE REGISTER FORTRAN /ISSUER=DEC /AUTHORIZATION=USA-1957 - _$ /PRODUCER=DEC /UNITS=1200 /VERSION=7.0 - _$ /AVAILABILITY=F /CHECKSUM=1-GEAD-MIDJ-IDNC-DLAC NOTE Enter the LICENSE commands carefully. LICENSE command strings can be long. If so, type a hyphen (-) at the end of a screen line to continue entering the same command. LMF may return only a checksum error when you omit or incorrectly enter information. Therefore, before you press Return, carefully check the characters you typed on each line. For most of the LICENSE commands, you can eliminate some typing by using the command procedure SYS$UPDATE:VMSLICENSE.COM All the LICENSE commands except LICENSE START, LICENSE LOAD, and LICENSE UNLOAD manipulate only the LMF databases. Thus, to enter most LICENSE commands, you need only the privileges required to access the License Databases. The License Database is file- based; normal file protection applies. LMF provides the License Database with a default file access of read and write privileges to system-level processes (S:RW). To enter the LICENSE START, LICENSE LOAD, and LICENSE UNLOAD commands, you need the privilege to change mode to kernel (CMKRNL) and to create system logical names (SYSNAM) and system privileges (SYSPRV). Some commands change license record fields in the License Database. LMF writes a history record when you use the following commands: LICENSE AMEND LICENSE CANCEL LICENSE COPY LICENSE DISABLE LICENSE ENABLE LICENSE ISSUE LICENSE MODIFY To display a listing of current and history records of licenses registered in the License Database, use LICENSE LIST. To display the licenses active on the current node, use the DCL command SHOW LICENSE. In some special circumstances, OpenVMS licenses are in a separate License Database located in SYS$SPECIFIC:[SYSEXE]LMF$SYSTEM.LDB. Your LICENSE commands must identify this database with the /DATABASE qualifier. Many of the LICENSE commands can affect more than one license simultaneously. You can control which licenses a command affects by adding more than one product name in the product- name parameter, using the /ALL qualifier, or using the standard DCL wildcard characters (* and %) in your command strings. Using the wildcard character (*) in the product-name parameter implies the use of /ALL. Many of the qualifiers are positional, allowing further control for the management of large License Databases. With multiple parameters, positional qualifiers affect only the preceding parameter. A positional qualifier that precedes every parameter, however, affects them all equally. 2 COPY Copies licenses from one License Database to another. When you use LICENSE COPY, LMF disables the source license and registers a copy in the destination License Database as if it were a new license. If the terms and conditions of your license contract allow it, you can re-enable the source database license by using LICENSE ENABLE. LICENSE COPY cannot be used to create a copy of a license in the same database as the source of the copy. Format LICENSE COPY product-name[,...] output-database 3 Parameters product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license to be copied to the output License Database. output-database File specification of the License Database to which the license or licenses should be copied. This database must have been previously created using LICENSE CREATE. If you enter a partial file specification (for example, specifying only a directory), LMF$LICENSE is the default file name, and .LDB is the default file type. If you do not specify a device or directory, the current default device and directory are used. 3 Qualifiers /ALL Positional qualifier. Specifies that all licenses with the given product name should be copied. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to copy. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database from which the license should be copied. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE COPY displays the name of each license that it copies. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. 3 Description To copy a license from one database to another, use LICENSE COPY. The following conditions apply to a LICENSE COPY transaction: o The status of the source database license changes to disabled. o Network copies are supported within the limits of remote FAL access. If you use access control strings ( "USERNAME password") within the file name, the actual password string is not stored. o LICENSE COPY does not transfer any user-supplied data such as reservation lists, modified termination dates, modified units, include or exclude node lists, or comments. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE COPY FORTRAN BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB This command copies the Fortran license in the default License Database to the BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB License Database. This command fails if there is more than one Fortran license in the default database. 2.$ LICENSE COPY FORTRAN/DATABASE=BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB - _$ BACKUP_DATA2:BACKUP2.LDB This command copies the Fortran license in the source License Database to the BACKUP_DATA2:BACKUP2.LDB License Database. This command fails if there is more than one Fortran license in the source database. 3.$ LICENSE COPY FORTRAN/ALL BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB This command copies all Fortran licenses in the default License Database to the BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB License Database. 4.$ LICENSE COPY FOR* BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB This command copies all licenses whose product names begin with the string "FOR" from the default License Database to the BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB License Database. In this case, using the wildcard character (*) implies the use of /ALL. 5.$ LICENSE COPY * BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB This command copies all licenses from the default License Database to the BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB License Database. In this case, using the wildcard character (*) implies the use of /ALL. 6.$ LICENSE COPY */PRODUCER=DEC BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB This command copies all licenses with the producer name DEC from the default License Database to the BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB License Database. In this case, using the wildcard character (*) implies the use of /ALL. 7.$ LICENSE COPY D%% BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB This command copies all licenses beginning with a "D" followed by any two characters from the default License Database to the BACKUP_DATA:BACKUP.LDB License Database. In this case, using the wildcard character (%) implies the use of /ALL. 2 CREATE Creates a License Database with no license records. Because LMF provides a default License Database in SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB when OpenVMS is installed, you do not typically need to use this command. To use LMF, you must have a License Database file and the License Unit Requirement Table (LURT) file (SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LURT.DAT), which comes installed with OpenVMS. Format LICENSE CREATE 3 Qualifier /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. 3 Example $ LICENSE CREATE/DATABASE=SYS$MANAGER:LMF$LICENSE.LDB This command creates the License Database named LMF$LICENSE.LDB in the directory SYS$MANAGER. 2 DELETE Deletes one or more licenses and all history information for those licenses from the License Database. Deleted licenses are no longer available to the system for any use. Format LICENSE DELETE product-name[,...] 3 Parameter product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license to be removed from the License Database. You can delete only licenses that have been registered. 3 Qualifiers /ALL Positional qualifier. Specifies that all licenses with the given product name should be deleted. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to delete. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database from which the license or licenses should be deleted. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE DELETE displays the name of each license that it deletes. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /STATUS /STATUS=[(keyword)[,...]] Positional qualifier. Selects licenses to be deleted according to the product-name parameter specified and one or more license status keywords from the following list: o ALL (default)-Deletes all specified licenses in the database. o ACTIVE-Deletes all specified enabled licenses in the database. ACTIVE status means that the registered license is enabled for loading. For backward compatibility, the LICENSE LIST command identifies enabled licenses as having a status of active. o DISABLED-Deletes all specified disabled licenses in the database. o EXTINCT-Purges specified license information by deleting all extinct license records in the database. Extinct records are history records retained after a license is modified. o CANCELED-Deletes all specified canceled licenses in the database. Note that current versions of LMF do not set license status to canceled. Old licenses may have this status. If you enter more than one keyword, separate them with commas, and enclose the list in parentheses. You can abbreviate each option to the minimum number of characters needed to uniquely identify it. 3 Description Use LICENSE DELETE to delete licenses from the License Database. To tailor your command, use options to the /STATUS qualifier and wildcard characters in product name strings. File space is not released following LICENSE DELETE commands. For information on retrieving Record Management Services (RMS) file space, see the OpenVMS Record Management Utilities Reference Manual. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE DELETE FORTRAN This command deletes the Fortran license from the default License Database. 2.$ LICENSE DELETE FORTRAN, COBOL, PASCAL This command deletes the Fortran, COBOL and Pascal licenses from the default License Database. 3.$ LICENSE DELETE FORTRAN/DATABASE=MY$DISK:MYDATA.LDB This command deletes the Fortran license from the MY$DISK:MYDATA.LDB License Database. 4.$ LICENSE DELETE FORTRAN/ISSUER=XYLASOFT This command deletes all licenses for the product named Fortran issued by XYLASOFT from the default License Database. If there are licenses for products named Fortran issued by companies other than XYLASOFT, they are not deleted. 5.$ LICENSE DELETE */STATUS=(EXTINCT) This command deletes all license records with a status of EXTINCT from the database. This is effectively a purge of all historical information. 2 DISABLE Disables a license currently registered in the License Database. Format LICENSE DISABLE product-name[,...] 3 Parameter product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license that you want to disable. You can disable only licenses that currently exist in the License Database. Enter the product name exactly as it appears on your Product Authorization Key (PAK). 3 Qualifiers /ALL Positional qualifier. Specifies that all licenses with the given product name should be disabled. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to disable. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE DISABLE displays the name of each license that it disables. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. 3 Description LICENSE DISABLE does not immediately affect loaded licenses. To affect a loaded license, you must first enter a LICENSE UNLOAD command, which unloads the license, but allows current processes to finish using the product. Note that to immediately disable all loaded licences, you must shut down the system. You cannot use LICENSE LOAD to activate a disabled license; you must first use LICENSE ENABLE. LMF does not display error messages when you or the system attempts to unload a disabled license. 3 Example $ LICENSE DISABLE ABCD /PRODUCER=DEC This command disables the license for ABCD software produced by Digital. Because no database is specified, LMF uses the default database. 2 ENABLE Enables an existing license in the License Database so that you can load it with LICENSE LOAD. This command cancels the effect of LICENSE DISABLE, LICENSE COPY, and LICENSE ISSUE, which leave the license disabled. Newly registered licenses are enabled by default. Format LICENSE ENABLE product-name[,...] 3 Parameter product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license to enable. You can enable only licenses that currently exist in the License Database. Enter the product name exactly as it appears on your PAK. 3 Qualifiers /ALL Positional qualifier. Specifies that all licenses with the given product name should be enabled. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to enable. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE ENABLE displays the name of each license that it enables. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. 3 Description Use LICENSE ENABLE to reestablish disabled licenses as available for loading with a LICENSE LOAD command. Enabled licenses can combine with other licenses when loaded for use. Do not enable a license that has expired, and be sure that all include, exclude, and reservation lists are up to date. Use LICENSE LIST to inspect each license before you enable it. Use LICENSE MODIFY to change include, exclude, and reservation lists. Because errors do not occur until enabled licenses are loaded, consider entering LICENSE LOAD immediately to load each newly enabled license on each appropriate node in an OpenVMS cluster. If another combinable license for the same product is already loaded, first unload it with LICENSE UNLOAD. Use the DCL command SHOW LICENSE to see which licenses are currently active on your system. After you unload the other license, enter LICENSE LOAD to load the combination of the newly enabled license and the previously active license. 3 Example $ LICENSE ENABLE DECSET /PRODUCER=DEC This command enables the license for DECset software. Because no database is specified, LMF uses the default database. Next, load the license with LICENSE LOAD. 2 ISSUE Produces a replica of a Product Authorization Key (PAK) that is sent to a file or displayed on your terminal (the default). If the terms and conditions of your license contract allow it, you can then enter this PAK replica in the License Database of another processor. When you enter LICENSE ISSUE, LMF disables the license in the current License Database and marks the license DISABLED. To enable a license that has been marked ISSUED, enter LICENSE ENABLE. For License Databases connected to a network, consider using LICENSE MOVE. Format LICENSE ISSUE product-name[,...] 3 Parameter product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license to be issued. You can issue only licenses that currently exist in the License Database. Enter the product name exactly as it appears on your PAK. 3 Qualifiers /ALL Positional qualifier. Specifies that all licenses with the given product name should be issued. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to issue. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE ISSUE displays the name of each license that it issues. /OUTPUT /OUTPUT[=filespec] Specifies the name of the file to which your PAK replica is written. If you do not specify the /OUTPUT qualifier, or if you do not supply a file specification with this qualifier, the output is sent to SYS$OUTPUT. If you specify a file name that already exists, this command creates a new version of the file. If you specify a complete file name and version that already exists, this command appends the PAK replica to the existing file. /PROCEDURE /PROCEDURE /NOPROCEDURE (default) Specifies that the PAK replica is to be written in the form of a DCL command procedure. Use /PROCEDURE with the /OUTPUT qualifier to create a command procedure in a file. Then you can invoke the procedure to register the PAK replica in the License Database of another processor. If you do not specify the /OUTPUT qualifier with /PROCEDURE, or if you do not supply a file specification with the /OUTPUT qualifier, the procedure is sent to SYS$OUTPUT. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. 3 Description If your license contract allows it, use LICENSE ISSUE to move a license from a License Database on one processor (or OpenVMS cluster environment) to a License Database on another processor. To move a license, enter LICENSE ISSUE, including enough PAK information to clearly identify the license. LICENSE ISSUE automatically disables the current license but does not immediately unload it; LMF does not terminate any active processes. To unload the license, enter a LICENSE UNLOAD command. After you issue the PAK replica, read the information, and register it on the new processor as you would any PAK, or, if you used the /PROCEDURE qualifier with the /OUTPUT qualifier, invoke the new DCL command procedure to register the license. Note that the PAK replica includes only PAK information registered with a LICENSE REGISTER command. The replica does not include any changes made with other LICENSE commands. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE ISSUE /OUTPUT=SYS$MANAGER:FORTRAN.PAK - _$ /PRODUCER=DEC FORTRAN This command issues a PAK replica, which you can use to register the Fortran license on a new processor (or OpenVMS cluster environment), and puts it into the file named FORTRAN.PAK. The next step is to print the file, read the information, and, using a LICENSE REGISTER command or VMSLICENSE.COM, enter the correct information in the License Database of the new processor. The Fortran license in the current License Database is marked ISSUED and is disabled. 2.$ LICENSE ISSUE /PRODUCER=DEC VOLSHAD This command displays, at the current terminal, a PAK replica with the information from the VOLSHAD (VAX Volume Shadowing) license. This display is reproduced below. The license registered in the current License Database is marked ISSUED and is disabled. You can register the data from this replica of a PAK in the License Database of another processor using either VMSLICENSE.COM or LICENSE REGISTER. Software Product Authorization Key Replica Issued by CASPER Issued on 24-FEB-1996 14:23 ----------------------------------- Issuer: DEC Authorization: ALS-WM-93166-5573 Product Name: VOLSHAD Producer: DEC Units: 460 Version: 5.4 PAK Termination Date: 31-DEC-1996 Availability: E Options: MOD_UNITS Checksum: 1-ADEB-DOCJ-NENC-KDBM 3.$ LICENSE ISSUE/PROCEDURE /OUTPUT=FORTRAN-USA10.COM - _$FORTRAN /AUTHORIZATION=USA-10 This command generates a DCL command procedure such as the following to be used for registering the specified license in a License Database: $! Software Product Authorization Key Replica $! Issued by CASPER $! Issued on 23-Oct-1991 14:23 $ LICENSE REGISTER FORTRAN - /ISSUER=DEC - /PRODUCER=DEC - /AUTHORIZATION=USA-10 - /UNITS=400 - /VERSION=5.4 - /AVAILABILITY=F - /CHECKSUM=1-HIDN-INDA-COMP-DAHH 2 LIST Displays information from the License Database on disk about the specified license or licenses. Use one or more qualifiers to control the form, content, and location of information displayed. The SHOW LICENSE command, described in the OpenVMS DCL Dictionary, displays information from the License Database in memory. Format LICENSE LIST [product-name[,...]] 3 Parameter product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license that you want to list. You can list only licenses that currently exist on disk in the License Database. You can specify one product name or use wildcard characters to display licenses. The product-name parameter is optional; the default is to display all of the licenses. 3 Qualifiers /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to list. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /BEFORE Used with /TERMINATION_DATE and /RELEASE_DATE, selects only those licenses whose times are before the time specified with the other qualifiers. The /BEFORE qualifier cannot be used with the /SINCE qualifier. /BRIEF /BRIEF (default) Specifies a listing from the License Database that includes only the license product and producer names. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /FULL Specifies a listing from the License Database that includes a full display of the specified license or licenses. /HISTORY Specifies a listing from the License Database that includes the history records in the License Database for the specified license or licenses. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /OUTPUT /OUTPUT[=filespec] Specifies the name of the file to which your list is written. If you do not specify the /OUTPUT qualifier, or if you do not supply a file specification with this qualifier, the output is sent to SYS$OUTPUT. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /RELEASE_DATE /RELEASE_DATE=date Used with /BEFORE or /SINCE, specifies a listing from the License Database that includes only licenses with a release date on or after the date specified. The date must be presented in the standard OpenVMS format: dd-mmm-yyyy. The default value is /SINCE /RELEASE_DATE=TODAY. /SELECTION_WEIGHT Produces a full display that includes the current selection weights assigned to individual PAKs. /SINCE Used with /TERMINATION_DATE and /RELEASE_DATE, selects only those licenses whose times are after the time specified with the other qualifiers. /SINCE cannot be used with /BEFORE. /TERMINATION_DATE /TERMINATION_DATE[=date] Used with /BEFORE or /SINCE, specifies a listing from the License Database that includes only licenses with a termination date on or after the date specified. The date must be presented in the standard OpenVMS format: dd-mmm-yyyy. The default value is /SINCE /TERMINATION_DATE=TODAY. /VERSION /VERSION=nn.nn Positional qualifier. Specifies the version number of the product for which you have a license. Versions use the format integer.integer. You can specify wildcard syntax as *.* but not * alone. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. 3 Description LICENSE LIST displays license records as they appear on disk in the License Database. LICENSE LIST /BRIEF does not produce a display with history records. You can control the displays as follows: o After you enter LICENSE LIST with the /BRIEF qualifier, you can scroll through the display with the arrow keys on your keyboard. o After you enter LICENSE LIST with the /FULL or /HISTORY qualifier, which displays the first LICENSE record, you can see the other records one at a time by pressing Return. You can also scroll through the license records using the Previous Screen key (or PF3) and the Next Screen key (or PF4). For any LICENSE LIST display, use the arrow keys to scroll vertically or horizontally one line at a time. Press Ctrl/Z to exit from the display. Note that a LICENSE LIST command may display the status of a registered license as Active. This means the registered license is enabled for loading; it has not been disabled. It does not necessarily mean the license was loaded with a LICENSE LOAD command. The LICENSE LIST command displays only information on disk in the License Database; enter SHOW LICENSE to determine all active licenses on the current system. You can also list licenses using the VMSLICENSE.COM command procedure. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE LIST/FULL This command displays a list of the names of product licenses in the License Database. Note that the LMF Version shown refers to the software that created the database. CTRL/Z to exit, PF3-PF4 for Prev-Next Screen, ArrowKeys to scroll. License Management Facility V1.2 License Database File: WORK2:[BACKUP]LMF$LICENSE.LDB;1 Created on: 20-JUL-1995 Created by user: USER_1 Created by LMF Version: V1.1 ----------------------------------- Issuer: DIGITAL-IM&T Authorization: Product Name: C Producer: DEC Units: 500 Version: 0.0 Release Date: 4-MAY-1996 PAK Termination Date: (none) Availability: 0 Activity: 000000100 Options: MOD_UNITS Product Token: Hardware ID: Revision Level: 1 Status: Active Command: REGISTER 2.$ LICENSE LIST /HISTORY FORTRAN This example displays a listing with full information of a current Fortran license issued by Digital. The first screen, shown here, displays the most recent license record for the Fortran license. To see the history records one screen at a time, press Return. The revision level of the displayed record is 2, and the status is Active. The next screen would display the previous license record with a revision level of 1 and a status of Extinct. CTRL/Z to exit, PF3-PF4 for Prev-Next Screen, ArrowKeys to scroll. License Management Facility V1.2 License Database File: ART::SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB Created on: 17-AUG-1995 Created by user: USER_2 Created by LMF Version: V1.2 ----------------------------------------------------- Issuer: DEC Authorization: USA-2468 Product Name: FORTRAN Producer: DEC Units: 0 Modified Units: 2000 Version: 5.4 Release Date: (none) PAK Termination Date: 31-DEC-1997 Modified Termination Date: 30-NOV-1998 Availability: F (Layered Products) Activity: 0 Options: MOD_UNITS Hardware ID: Revision Level: 2 Status: Active Command: MODIFY Modified by user: DEGAS Modified on: 19-AUG-1996 14:32:23.41 Include: ART 2 LOAD Loads licenses, making them available for product authorization on the current node. The product licenses must be registered and current in the License Database. That is, they must not have been disabled or issued. If the license is already loaded, LMF returns an informational message, unloads the license, and then loads the license. To use this command, you need CMKRNL, SYSNAM, and SYSPRV privileges. Format LICENSE LOAD [product-name][,...] 3 Parameter [product-name][,...] Name or names of products with a license to be loaded. You can load only licenses that are currently registered and enabled in the License Database. Enter the product name exactly as it appears on your Product Authorization Key (PAK). If you do not specify a product name, LICENSE LOAD loads all of the products that are registered and enabled. You cannot use wildcard characters for product-name. 3 Qualifiers /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to register. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG (default) /NOLOG Controls whether or not LICENSE LOAD displays a message to acknowledge the loading of each license. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Name of the company that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /UNLOAD /UNLOAD (default) /NOUNLOAD When requested to load a license that is currently loaded, LMF first automatically unloads it and then loads the latest license. You can specify /NOUNLOAD to verify whether or not there is already a license loaded; LMF issues the warning LICENSE-W- ALREADYLOADED and does not load the license. To then load the license, follow these steps: 1. Manually unload the current license with the LICENSE UNLOAD command. 2. Reissue the LICENSE LOAD command. 3 Description The LICENSE LOAD command loads licenses registered in the License Database. To use a licensed product, ensure that the system loads the registered license. When you register a license with VMSLICENSE.COM, you can confirm an option to load the license, whereas if you register a license with LICENSE REGISTER, you must also load it with LICENSE LOAD. Use LICENSE LOAD only after you register a new license; LMF automatically loads all registered licenses at each subsequent system startup. You can enter LICENSE LOAD at other times to load modifications made with other LICENSE commands. You can enter one LICENSE LOAD command without product-name to load all the available registered licenses. NOTE Registered licenses are enabled for loading by default. You can, however, disable a registered license to prevent loading. A LICENSE START command entered interactively or when the system reboots also loads all licenses that are registered and enabled. If you register multiple licenses for a single product, LICENSE LOAD loads all of the matching licenses. You do not typically load individual licenses, and you cannot unload individual licenses for a product. The Availability, Activity, Personal Use, and User license units of the multiple licenses work in concert to provide more product availability. In an OpenVMS cluster environment, each system loads licenses when it reboots. If you need to load a license for all assigned nodes of a running cluster, you can do one of the following: o Log in to each OpenVMS cluster node, and enter LICENSE LOAD. o Invoke the OpenVMS SYSMAN utility to execute the LICENSE LOAD command on the desired OpenVMS cluster nodes. See the OpenVMS System Manager's Manual for details on defining your management environment and executing commands on a list of nodes. A LICENSE LOAD command can fail, sending a message to the operator communication manager (OPCOM) for any of the following reasons: o Insufficient license units are registered for the current node. o The current date is later than the license termination date. o A license checksum does not match the rest of the license data. Check for data corruption in the License Database. If you attempt to load a disabled license or a license modified to exclude the current node in an OpenVMS cluster environment, OPCOM does not display an error message. If licenses for more than one product are being loaded, LICENSE LOAD continues with the next license following a failure. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE MODIFY/INCLUDE=MUSIC FORTRAN $ LICENSE LOAD FORTRAN The commands in this example illustrate a situation where you enter a LICENSE LOAD command interactively. LICENSE LOAD loads the product Fortran on the node MUSIC. Data in the License Database determines whether the license is successfully loaded on the specified node. 2.$ LICENSE LOAD BASIC %LICENSE-W-NOLOAD, license was not loaded for BASIC -LICENSE-F-EXCEEDED, attempted usage exceeds active license limits This command attempts to load the product BASIC, but LICENSE LOAD fails because too few license units are registered to authorize use on the current processor. 2 MODIFY Modifies a license for system management and license-sharing purposes. Immediately changes data in the License Database, but your modifications do not affect the running system until you load the modified license. Format LICENSE MODIFY qualifier[,...] product-name[,...] 3 Parameter product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license to be modified. You can modify only licenses that currently exist in the License Database. 3 Qualifiers /ADD Used with the /INCLUDE or /EXCLUDE qualifier, specifies that the node names provided are to be added to the previously established include or exclude lists. Used with the /RESERVE qualifier, specifies that the user names provided are to be added to the previously established reservation lists. When you use /ADD, you do not need to retype the entire list to add a new node name or user name. /ALL Positional qualifier. Modifies all the licenses with the given product name. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to modify. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /COMBINE /COMBINE /NOCOMBINE Modifies a PAK by adding or removing the COMBINE option. If the PAKs are combinable, LMF combines them during license loading. /COMMENT /COMMENT=string Specifies a string of text. Use this comment field of up to 63 characters to associate information for this transaction with the license. History records for the license retain this license information. If you specify more than one word, enclose the text in quotation marks (""). This qualifier is optional. The text in the comment field is replaced only when you enter new comments with another LICENSE MODIFY command. At this point the old comment text is available as a history record. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /EXCLUDE /EXCLUDE=(node-name[,node-name,...]) Specifies that the named node or nodes in an OpenVMS cluster environment cannot access the licensed product. The excluded nodes cannot load (with a LICENSE LOAD or LICENSE START command) the license registered in the License Database. Each node-name argument must be a System Communications Services (SCS) node name or a system parameter set with the System Generation utility (SYSGEN). The node name might not be the same as the DECnet node name. If you specify more than one node name, separate them with commas, and enclose the list in parentheses. This qualifier is optional. To modify previously defined lists without having to retype all of the node names, use the /ADD or /REMOVE qualifiers with /EXCLUDE. Although you can control license access to nodes with /EXCLUDE and control user access with /RESERVE, you cannot use these qualifiers on the same command line. If you want to use both types of control with the same license, you must enter separate LICENSE MODIFY commands. /INCLUDE /INCLUDE=(node-name[,node-name,...]) Specifies that the named node or nodes in an OpenVMS cluster environment can access the licensed product. Only the included nodes can load (with a LICENSE LOAD or LICENSE START command) the license registered in the License Database. Each node-name argument must be an SCS node name, or a system parameter set with SYSGEN. The node name might not be the same as the DECnet node name. Because licenses for the OpenVMS operating system software usually specify the /NO_SHARE option on their PAKs, in a cluster environment you must restrict each OpenVMS license to a single node. If you did not take the option when registering with VMSLICENSE.COM, enter LICENSE MODIFY/INCLUDE=node-name, specifying only one SCS node name for each OpenVMS license. If you specify more than one SCS node name for a license that does not specify /NO_SHARE, separate the names with commas, and enclose the list in parentheses. This qualifier is optional. To modify previously defined lists without having to retype all of the node names, use the /ADD or /REMOVE qualifiers with /INCLUDE. Although you can control license access to nodes with /INCLUDE and control user access with /RESERVE, you cannot use these qualifiers on the same command line. If you want to use both types of control with the same license, you must enter separate LICENSE MODIFY commands. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE MODIFY displays the name of each license that it modifies. /NO_SHARE /NO_SHARE /NONO_SHARE Specifies whether to add or subsequently remove /NO_SHARE from a PAK. Adding /NO_SHARE prevents the sharing of the PAK units with other cluster nodes. PAKs with /NO_SHARE require you to provide the SCS node name of the cluster node that will be using this particular license. See the /INCLUDE qualifier for more information. Note that if /NO_SHARE is present on your PAK when you register it, you cannot remove the option using /NONO_SHARE. Only if you add /NO_SHARE with the MODIFY command, can you subsequently remove it. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /REMOVE Used with the /INCLUDE or /EXCLUDE qualifier, specifies that the node names provided are to be removed from the previously established include or exclude lists. Used with the /RESERVE qualifier, specifies that the user names provided are to be removed from the previously established reservation lists. When you use /REMOVE, you do not need to retype the entire list to remove a node name or user name. /RESERVE /RESERVE=(user-name[,user-name,...]) Specifies that the license or licenses are to be reserved for use by the users listed in the user-name parameter. Users not listed are denied access to the product. The value applied to user- name differs from product to product. See your Software Product Description (SPD) for details. Most products define user-name to be the user name OpenVMS maintains for each account. This is the name you type at the Username prompt during login. If your PAK specifies the RESERVE_UNITS option, you must assign one or more users to a reservation list. The number of user names allowed per list depends on the number of activity units available and a constant value or the License Unit Requirement Tables (LURTs). Calculate this number as you would for any Activity License. For example, a 200-unit license with a constant value of 100 is a two-user license. You can also create and modify a reservation list for Availability and regular Activity Licenses that do not specify the RESERVE_UNITS option. Because these licenses do not limit the number of names on the list, you can assign as many names as you like to the reservation list. All users not on the list are denied access. Although you can control license access to nodes with /INCLUDE and /EXCLUDE qualifiers and control user access with the /RESERVE qualifier, you cannot use these qualifiers on the same command line. If you want to use both types of control with the same license, you must enter separate LICENSE MODIFY commands. Use the /ADD and /REMOVE qualifiers for further control in modifying previously established reservation lists. /SELECTION_WEIGHT /SELECTION_WEIGHT=number Modifies the selection weight. Selection-weight values determine the order in which LMF checks multiple licenses when a product makes a license grant request. LMF checks higher-weighted licenses before lower-weighted ones. Specify arbitrary numbers between 1 and 1000. NOTE You cannot modify selection weights for Availability Licenses. To restore the selection weight of a PAK to the default value, enter the LICENSE MODIFY command with /SELECTION_WEIGHT=0. For example, you can use either of the following commands: $ LICENSE MODIFY FORTRAN /SELECTION_WEIGHT=0 $ LICENSE MODIFY FORTRAN /NOSELECTION_WEIGHT /TERMINATION_DATE /TERMINATION_DATE=date Date at which the product license is to be terminated. If your PAK supplied a license termination date, LMF uses the earliest date to determine the termination date. The date must be presented in the standard OpenVMS format: dd-mmm-yyyy. If you want to restrict a product from further use today, enter yesterday's date; LMF terminates the license at the end of the day specified. /UNITS /UNITS=n Number of license units you want on a license that includes the MOD_UNITS option. If your PAK allows you to modify the license units, use this qualifier to change the value in the License Database. 3 Description Use the LICENSE MODIFY command to modify a license. To control which nodes in a cluster environment have access to what software, use LICENSE MODIFY with the /INCLUDE or /EXCLUDE qualifier. For example, you can load licenses for products used less often or requiring limited access on one node. If you do not specify which nodes can load a license (with a LICENSE LOAD or LICENSE START command), LMF loads a license on a first-come, first-served basis. When your license has insufficient license units for full cluster environment use, control product access with an include list. Because most OpenVMS PAKs use the /NO_SHARE option, in a cluster environment you must restrict these operating system licenses to one node. Enter LICENSE MODIFY/INCLUDE=node-name, specifying only one SCS node name for each OpenVMS license. To control which users have access to a product, use LICENSE MODIFY with the /RESERVE qualifier. You can create and modify a reservation list for any kind of license. Only user names on the reservation lists are allowed access to the product. If your PAK specifies the RESERVE_UNITS option, you must assign one or more users to a reservation list. The number of user names allowed per list depends on the number of activity units available and a constant value or the License Unit Requirement Tables (LURTs). Calculate this number as you would for any Activity License. For example, a 200-unit license with a constant value of 100 is a two-user license. Use the /ADD and /REMOVE qualifiers in conjunction with the /INCLUDE, /EXCLUDE, and /RESERVE qualifiers when you modify existing include, exclude, and reservation lists. To add comments about a license in the License Database, use LICENSE MODIFY with the /COMMENT qualifier. If your PAK includes the MOD_UNITS option, you can use the /MOD_ UNITS qualifier to specify the number of license units you want for your registered license. Use the other LICENSE MODIFY command qualifiers only as needed to identify the correct license. You can also modify a license record using the VMSLICENSE.COM command procedure. List Size Restrictions Two restrictions apply to the size of lists (reservation lists, include lists, or exclude lists). These restrictions apply to PAKs of all license types. o On any single PAK, the sum of characters contained in all lists must not exceed 5000 characters. Because the length of names vary and some overhead is used for each name, this 5000-character limit cannot be expressed as an exact number of permissible names. However, Digital guarantees that at least 400 names, in total, can be specified in the various types of list. For example, each of the following represents the minimally guaranteed number of names: - Reservation list with up to 400 user names - Reservation list with up to 200 user names plus an include list with up to 200 node names (totaling up to 400) - Reservation list with up to 200 user names plus an exclude list with up to 200 node names (totaling up to 400) - Include list with up to 400 node names - Exclude list with up to 400 node names NOTE If you enter more names than are permitted, LICENSE LIST might not be able to display all names entered. In this case, you receive the error message LICENSE-F-CORRUP. However, the License Database is not actually corrupt, and the PAKs can still be loaded into memory (though the names are not displayed). o The LICENSE LOAD and LICENSE START commands can load into memory a reservation list with no more than 30,000 characters. (Include and exclude lists, which are not loaded into memory, are irrelevant to the 30,000-character limit.) Because the length of names vary and some overhead is used for each name, this 30,000-character limit cannot be expressed as an exact number of permissible names. But Digital guarantees that, for each product, at least 2000 user names can appear on reservation lists. In the case of an OpenVMS cluster, this is a per-node limit. Note that, because 2000 user names is a per-product limit and because there can be more than one PAK per product, the number of user names on a per-product basis is the sum of the user names specified on each PAK. For example, if three activity PAKs for the DECwrite product were registered on a system and each PAK specified a reservation list with 200 user names, the total number of user names for that product is 600. This is safely below the 30,000-character (2000 user name) limit and below the 5000- character (400 user name) limit. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE MODIFY /EXCLUDE=(DANCE,THEATR) - _$ /COMMENT="Modified to exclude nodes DANCE & THEATR 10/23/91" - _$ FORTRAN This command modifies the Fortran license in the License Database so that users cannot access Fortran from the nodes named DANCE and THEATR. A comment is added to the database record for future reference. 2.$ LICENSE MODIFY /ADD /INCLUDE=(DRAMA) - _$ /COMMENT="Modified to add node named DRAMA 10/23/96" - _$ FORTRAN This command modifies the Fortran license in the License Database so that users can access Fortran from the node DRAMA in addition to any nodes previously named in the license include list. 3.$ LICENSE MODIFY /UNITS=1200 FORTRAN $ LICENSE LOAD FORTRAN This command changes the license units on a license with the MOD_UNITS option. 4.$ LICENSE MODIFY/ TERMINATION_DATE=1-JAN-1996 FORTRAN Unless an earlier termination date exists, this command sets a new cancellation date of 1-JAN-1996 for the Fortran license. 5.$ LICENSE MODIFY/EXCLUDE="" FORTRAN This command removes all nodes from the previously established exclude list. All nodes now have access to the Fortran license. 2 MOVE Moves one or more licenses from one License Database to another. When you use LICENSE MOVE, LMF deletes those licenses from the source License Database. For License Databases not connected to a network, consider using the LICENSE ISSUE /PROCEDURE command. Format LICENSE MOVE product-name[,...] output-database 3 Parameters product-name[,...] Name or names of products with a license to be moved to the output License Database. output-database File specification of the License Database to which the license or licenses should be moved. This database must have been previously created using LICENSE CREATE. If you enter a partial file specification (for example, specifying only a directory), LMF$LICENSE is the default file name, and .LDB is the default file type. If you do not specify a device or directory, the current default device and directory are used. 3 Qualifiers /ALL Positional qualifier. Specifies that all licenses with the given product name should be moved. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Positional qualifier. Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to modify. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database from which the license or licenses should be moved. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default License Database name and location. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE MOVE displays the name of each license that it moves. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. Use this optional qualifier only if you need it to identify the license. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. 3 Description If your license contract allows it, use LICENSE MOVE to move a license from one License Database to another. To move a license, enter LICENSE MOVE, including enough PAK information to clearly identify the license. LICENSE MOVE automatically deletes the license in the source License Database. Note that the moved license includes only the general PAK information normally provided by LICENSE REGISTER. LICENSE MOVE does not transfer any user-supplied data such as reservation lists, modified termination dates, modified units, include or exclude node lists, or comments. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE MOVE FORTRAN ALT_SYS2:LMF$LICENSE.LDB This command moves the Fortran license in the default License Database to the ALT_SYS2:LMF$LICENSE.LDB output License Database. This command fails if the default database contains more than one Fortran license. 2.$ LICENSE MOVE FORTRAN/DATABASE=LMFDATA:LMF$LICENSE.LDB - _$ ALT_SYS:LMF$LICENSE.LDB This command moves the Fortran license in the source License Database, LMFDATA:LMF$LICENSE.LDB, to the destination License Database, ALT_SYS:LMF$LICENSE.LDB. This command fails if the source License Database contains more than one Fortran license. 3.$ LICENSE MOVE FORTRAN/ALL ALT_SYS2:LMF$LICENSE.LDB This command moves all Fortran licenses in the default License Database to the output License Database, ALT_ SYS2:LMF$LICENSE.LDB. 4.$ LICENSE MOVE * ALT_SYS2:LMF$LICENSE.LDB This command merges two databases by moving all licenses in the default License Database to the output License Database, ALT_SYS2:LMF$LICENSE.LDB. 2 REGISTER Adds a new license to the License Database. A Product Authorization Key (PAK) provides the product name and information you need to register the license. You must enter all information provided by your PAK exactly as it appears. You can also register a new product license with the command procedure SYS$UPDATE:VMSLICENSE.COM, which provides a prompt- based interface to the LICENSE REGISTER command. Format LICENSE REGISTER product-name 3 Parameter product-name Name of the product with a license to register. You can register only licenses that do not currently exist in the License Database. You can register multiple licenses for the same product when they have different authorization numbers. Enter the product name exactly as it appears on your PAK. You cannot use wildcard characters for the product-name parameter with this command. 3 Qualifiers /ACTIVITY { code } /ACTIVITY= { CONSTANT=integer } { } Specifies a license unit code that corresponds to a License Unit Requirement Table (LURT) or to a constant value. If your PAK supplies an activity code, you must enter the code exactly as it appears. The current codes are A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, and I. If your PAK specifies the keyword CONSTANT, then you must also specify the integer value. This denotes a constant requirement for all System Marketing Models (SMMs) equal to the value given. If your PAK specifies the decimal value 0, then the license has no requirement for that license type. PAK issuers determine the value for this element. /AUTHORIZATION /AUTHORIZATION=string Specifies a string that helps identify the license you want to register. You must enter the authorization string exactly as it appears on your PAK. /AVAILABILITY { code } /AVAILABILITY= { CONSTANT=integer } { } Specifies a license unit code that corresponds to a License Unit Requirement Table (LURT) or to a constant value. If your PAK supplies an availability code, you must enter the code exactly as it appears. The current codes are A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, and I. If your PAK specifies the keyword CONSTANT, then you must also specify the integer value from your PAK. PAK issuers determine the value for this element. /CHECKSUM /CHECKSUM=string Specifies a 17-character verification string created by the PAK issuer for each PAK. The checksum string is presented in the format n-cccc-cccc-cccc-cccc, where n is an integer and c is an alphabetic character from A through P. A PAK presents the checksum string with hyphen (-) characters for readability. Because LMF does not count hyphens for authorization, you do not have to enter them. Otherwise, you must enter the checksum string exactly as it appears on your PAK. /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB in an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default database. /HARDWARE_ID /HARDWARE_ID=string Specifies the identification number of the hardware on which the product is licensed. If your PAK supplies a hardware identification number, you must enter the information exactly as it appears. /ISSUER /ISSUER=string Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that issued the PAK for the product. Note that the PAK issuer is often the same as the producer. You must enter the information exactly as it appears on your PAK. /OPTIONS /OPTIONS=[(keyword[,...])] Specifies LICENSE REGISTER options. If your PAK supplies any license options, you must enter this information exactly as it appears. The following table describes the available keywords. Keyword Meaning ALPHA Identifies Availability Licenses for Alpha systems. MOD_UNITS You can modify the number of license units. NO_SHARE You cannot use the license on more than one processor in an OpenVMS cluster environment. To use this license in a cluster, designate it for one node. Issue LICENSE MODIFY with the /INCLUDE qualifier. RESERVE_UNITS The license must be assigned to one or more users. Reserve the license using LICENSE MODIFY with the /RESERVE qualifier. USER Designates a User License. VAX_ALPHA Identifies Availability Licenses that are valid for both OpenVMS VAX and OpenVMS Alpha systems. If you enter more than one keyword, separate them with commas, and enclose the list in parentheses. You can abbreviate each option to the minimum number of characters needed to uniquely identify it. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. You must enter the information exactly as it appears on your PAK. /RELEASE_DATE /RELEASE_DATE=date Specifies a product release date such that the license authorizes use of all product versions released on or before the date. If your PAK supplies a product release date, you must enter the information exactly as it appears. The date must be presented in the standard OpenVMS format: dd-mmm-yyyy. /TERMINATION_DATE /TERMINATION_DATE=date Specifies the date on which the product license terminates. If your PAK supplies a license termination date, you must enter it exactly as it appears. The date must be presented in the standard OpenVMS format: dd-mmm-yyyy. /TOKEN /TOKEN=string Specifies a string of information associated with some products. This option can enable or disable certain product features. See your product documentation for details. If your PAK provides token information, you must enter it exactly as it appears. /UNITS /UNITS=number Specifies the number of license units for your license. You must enter the number exactly as it appears on your PAK even if your PAK specifies the MOD_UNITS option. /VERSION /VERSION=nn.nn Limits the version number of the product for which you have a license. Use the format integer.integer. If your PAK supplies version information, you must enter it exactly as it appears. 3 Description LICENSE REGISTER is the primary LICENSE command. Before you enter a LICENSE REGISTER command, you need a PAK that supplies the information required to enter a license in the License Database. You can register additional licenses for products that already exist in the License Database. If you register another combinable license in the License Database, LMF combines the license units during a LICENSE LOAD or LICENSE START command. This allows more product availability or activity for the same product. The checksum number supplied with your PAK is calculated from the other information supplied with the PAK. Thus, you must enter each qualifier necessary to supply information from your particular PAK. If you enter LICENSE REGISTER without a required qualifier, LMF returns a checksum error. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE REGISTER FORTRAN /ISSUER=DEC /AUTHORIZATION=USA-10 - _$ /PRODUCER=DEC /UNITS=400 /VERSION=5.4 - _$ /AVAILABILITY=F /CHECKSUM=1-HIDN-INDA-COMP-DAHH This command adds the license for the product Fortran to the default License Database. Fortran becomes licensed using the availability formula with 400 license units available. 2.$ LICENSE REGISTER DVNETRTG /ISSUER=DEC /AUTHORIZATION=USA-15 - _$ /PRODUCER=DEC /UNITS=1000 /VERSION=4.0 - _$ /AVAILABILITY=E/CHECKSUM=1-COOD-AGON-EFIC-HING This command adds the license for the product DVNETRTG (DECnet for OpenVMS Routing) to the default License Database. In the example, DVNETRTG is licensed using the availability formula with 1000 license units. 2 START Sets up the License Unit Requirement Table (LURT) for your system and loads all licenses that are registered and enabled in the License Database. Because the OpenVMS operating system issues a LICENSE START command during system startup, you should need this command only if system startup fails. To use this command, you need CMKRNL, SYSNAM, and SYSPRV privileges. To load the licenses in the License Database of a system with LMF already started, use LICENSE LOAD. Format LICENSE START 3 Parameters None. 3 Qualifiers /DATABASE /DATABASE=filespec Specifies the location of the License Database. The default file specification is defined by the logical name LMF$LICENSE, which points to SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB on an unmodified OpenVMS system. Use this optional qualifier only if you do not use the default database. /LOG /LOG (default) /NOLOG Controls whether LICENSE START displays a message to acknowledge the loading of each product license. 3 Example $ LICENSE START This command sets up the LURT for your system and loads all the licenses that are registered and enabled in the License Database. 2 UNLOAD Unloads a license, making the product unavailable from the current node. The product license or licenses must be registered in the License Database and must have been previously loaded with an interactive or automatic LICENSE LOAD command. Running processes are allowed to continue to completion. To use this command, you need CMKRNL, SYSNAM, and SYSPRV privileges. Format LICENSE UNLOAD product-name[,...] 3 Parameter product-name[,...] Name of the licensed product to be unloaded. You can unload only the licenses that have been loaded. Enter each product name exactly as it appears on its Product Authorization Key (PAK). You cannot use wildcard characters for product-name. 3 Qualifiers /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Controls whether LICENSE UNLOAD displays the name of each license that it unloads. /PRODUCER /PRODUCER=string Positional qualifier. Specifies the name of the company (for example, DEC) that owns the product for which you have a license. The default string for this qualifier is DEC. If DEC is not the producer of the product, you must use this qualifier to identify the product. This qualifier affects only the product name that immediately precedes it in the command string. Wildcard characters are not allowed. 3 Description LICENSE UNLOAD affects all units for a single product even if the loaded units are combined from multiple licenses. In such a case, you cannot unload the units from a single license. You must unload all the units. You are not required to unload a loaded license before modifying data in the License Database. To maximize product availability, modify licenses in the License Database first, and then load the changes by entering a LICENSE UNLOAD command followed by a LICENSE LOAD command. 3 Examples 1.$ LICENSE UNLOAD/PRODUCER=DEC FORTRAN This command unloads the Digital Fortran license on the node from which it is entered. 2.$ LICENSE UNLOAD PASCAL,FORTRAN This command unloads the DEC Pascal and Digital Fortran licenses on the node from which it is entered.
