How To: Upgrade a UNIX license manager

Summary

Steps to upgrade the license manager on UNIX.

Procedure

  1. Go to the License Manager directory:

    Code:
    % cd $ARCHOME/sysgen

  2. Make sure no one is using licenses by checking the license manager status:

    Code:
    % ./lmutil lmstat -a -c license.dat

  3. If no one is using licenses, shut down the license manager:

    Code:

    Code:
    % ./lmgrd -V

    (Version should be 7.0d or later)
  7. Start the license manager:

    Code:
    % ./lmgrd -c license.dat > license.log
