When you import license keys (license.dat) using the License Key Administrator the last thing it says is "Would you like to stop and start the server now ?"

If I have a number of users who are using RTC at the time what happens to them ?

Will their RTC Eclipse client sessions be terminated or will they be able to carry on working blissfully unaware of the license update ?

It's hard to say from the way the question is phrased and without any screenshots.  However, if you are talking about the license import operation mentioned in this wiki:
it is possible that the message is referring to the License server.

Thanks Rosa, that other forum does look like a better place to post my question.

To try and clarify my original post about my new "license.dat" file:
I have a number of people using RTC Eclipse client. Each of these sessions use 8 IBM Rational License Floating Tokens.
The current licenses expire in a few months time so I have bought some new ones.
When I import my new license keys I will have to restart the License Key Server.

What effect, if any, will restarting the License Key Server have on these users ?
e.g. will their RTC Eclipse sessions stop working ?

I am just trying to work out the best time to apply my new licences.
