Jazz license gets reset when I do repotools -createTables


Vibha Sinha (1643610) | asked Sep 28 '08, 8:08 a.m.
Hello

I frequently need to do repotools -createTables or -export and -import.
However, many times in the process of doing this the license gets reverted back to "trial" license instead of permanent.

Would appreciate help in avoiding this.

Thanks

I am having a similar problem. I have installed the licenses several times and "something" happens that bounces them out at some point. They seem fine for several days, then one day I get an email from someone saying "did you realize our Jazz license is about to expire?"

Happened again over the weekend. Since I don't do much admin of the server (though I did reboot the machine on Friday), I'm expecting it is one of two things -- restarting the server or the weekly DB2 backup.

Any ideas/suggestions? The license expires on Tuesday, so I'm assuming I'm just out of luck if there isn't a fix for this yet.

Thanks...Millard

The Jazz licenses will be reset if the web application's work directory
is deleted. When you restart your server, do you do anything other than
just stop and start it? Are you using Tomcat or WebSphere?

The permanent license is designed for production data on a production
server. Running -createTables or -export alone should not cause the
trial to be reset, but if you re-install your server or create a new
server, then the license keys installed through the web UI need to be
installed again.

If you are regularly doing -createTables or dealing with new databases,
I would recommend using the trial licenses, and only using the permanent
licenses once you have a more permanent server setup.
