Register PAKS

Is there anyway to redo the initial registration of the register Paks?
Problem: Only one user can log on at a time. Multi-user register pak not recognized. Machine came with 7 register paks but only 5 or 6 were allowed to be entered into the template? HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Register PAKS

Hi,

can you post a lmf list?
Have you done a lmf reset after registering the licenses?

Re: Register PAKS

use

# lmf list full for OSF-USR

and check if output contains "implicit user" license. If so delete the license with "lmf delete" now the other OSF-USR licenses should work. Check with lmf list if licenses expired.

Re: Register PAKS

Not sure what an lmf reset is or does? I guess I have not done so.

Output reads:

Re: Register PAKS

Hi,

after you registered a license, it is in the state enabled. lmf reset activates it. You still miss the osf-base and osf-svr license, which you should have too. Can you also post lmf list?

Re: Register PAKS

Hi,

see, the osf-base is only enabled, no active.
run lmf reset and look what it says. There are many osf-base licenses. Usually you need only one. run lmf list full for OSF-BASE and post it.

Re: Register PAKS

Re: Register PAKS

Hi,

no need to be afraid. When you have mutliple licenses and you do not qualify enough, lmf complains info ambigious.
Usage : lmf delete [ [ ] ]

lmf list full for osf-... will give you the necessary details.

Re: Register PAKS

Hi,

there is still something wrong with your osf-base license. Can you please post the Key Options? Do you have the osf-base licenses on hand? Are Key Options MOD_UNITS, ALPHA?

Michael

Re: Register PAKS

Key options for all are:

ALPHA

Re: Register PAKS

Hi,

are we talking about this Alpha 8200 from the other threads? I don't know how much units that machine needs. Do you have a osf-base license with Key Options MOD_UNITS, ALPHA?

Michael

Re: Register PAKS

yes it is an alpha 8200. The only License Paks with Key Options are OSF-USR, and OSF-SVR

Re: Register PAKS

I would suggest, you contact HP for a good license. Maybe they trade in these other six.

Re: Register PAKS

Please read my posting CAREFULLY! The answer contains how to remove the license (lmf delete) and the information for the "implicit user" license. So I don't know why you ask things already answered.

The licenses will be created for specific machines and customers, so in case of a mismatch contact HP directly as written by Michael.

Re: Register PAKS

Ralf,

lmf delete OSF-USR DEC UNIX-SERVER-IMPLICIT-USER

it looks to me, that he deleted the implicit user licence.

He still has a problem with the osf-base licence. Why lm complains about not enough units, I don't know. How many do you need for an 8200?

Re: Register PAKS

but why is he asking how to remove a license after I've posted the answer already?

Because he was afraid to accidently delete more than he wanted to. ;-)

Re: Register PAKS

The last message indicates a wrong license for the "hardware" itself. Each machine requires - depending on the number of cpu's and type of cpu - a number of units within the base license.

The only way to solve this problem is to call HP and verify correct license.
