Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence

[ Edited ]

How can we get to know about the Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence which are already installed on the server?

I am using Concurrent License for both QTP and QC. I have installed QTP on many machines.

I need locking code to generate the new license keys.

But my problem is that i am getting a different machine locking code on different machines having QTP.

As i am using a concurrent license for QTP Which MAchine locking code i should use to get the new license key for my concurrent license?

I am using "licence validation utility" under "Programs/Quict test Professionals/Tools" to get locking code.



i am not able to find any locking code for QC.
please suggest.

thanks,
Gourav

Re: Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence

Use WLMAdmin utility to get the installed license details.

You can locate this in QTP software in a folder called license server.

QTP: Licenses are generated based on the locking code of the machine. This is unique to each QTP machine.

If you are using concurrent licenses...then locking code is obtained only from server machine and keys are installed only on the server. (QTP Client can be asked to points to the license server)

QC: There is no concept of locking code here, as QC is not host/node locked.....If you specify your QC server HOST name; the licenses will be geneated against the same.

Let me know, if you have any queries.

Hope this info was helpful !

WLMAdmin and other utilities help you to locate your licenses...

if you want to get locking code....

use "licence validation utility" under "Programs/Quict test Professionals/Tools" to get locking code.

Re: Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence

I used it but i am getting different machine locking code on different machines. I am in the impression that for concurrent license it should be same on all the machines.

Machine locking code and Locking code for QTP are one and the same or they are different.

Re: Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence

locking code is different for different machines......

If you have concurrent licenses........you need provide locking code of the machine.....where you want to install the licenses..........not all machines...

whats your exact problem now??

Re: Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence

I need locking code in order to generate the new license Key.

We have installed the QTP concurrent license on the server which is a physical machine.

We are using Virtuaals machine also in our project, we have installed QTP on those machines also.

Now i am confused from where i should pick the locking code or machine locking code.

please suggest.

Re: Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence

You should pick up the locking code from the physical machine...

If still confused on how QTP licenses work, I suggest you to contact local HP sales folks or HP licensing operations team.

Re: Locking Code for QTP/QC concurrent licence

You need to request a new Concurrent License Key for your License Server (i.e. your physical machine). After that, you could use srvutils.exe to install your license key.

You can find the srvutils.exe from your QTP9.5 CD

To access the Lock Key:

 

Go to:

'Start'

Program Files

HP Software

HP Unified Funtional Testing

Tools

License Validation Utility

 

It is the 'Maching Locking Code' at the top of the Utility. ( Note that you have to have successfully downloaded the UFT software in order to find it this way.) You can send the Lock code to an HP sales person or Engineer and they will send you a License key.
