Enterprise licensing with Tokens - redundant server support


Adrian Daniels (6312020) | asked Nov 19 '12, 2:54 a.m.
 Hi,
Does anyone know if version 8.1.1 of Rational Common Licensing support the 3 server redundant licensing setup when using Tokens ?

I have a potential setup where token licenses for (RTC and RRC) want to be shared around the world as two of the development teams do not overlap at all - is it possible and recommended to configure servers in say three locations around the world and allow them to share the license pool ?

I see that the documentation states that it is not a good way to go, but I have seen other customers that have done it with ClearCase licenses on FlexLM

"Important: Redundant servers must be at the same site and on the same subnet. Separating redundant servers across multiple sites (for example, one in the U.S., one in Europe, and one in Asia) does not provide maximum fault tolerance."

So do tokens support the redundant server configuration ?
Can it be used successfully across geographically separated sites ?

Or would it just be better to distribute the token license count across a license server at each site and list all of those servers as available for keys ?

Cheers,
Adrian
