Of course, if that's an Ethernet hardware
address, and the software actually checks it,
and you can't move that card to the new
system (and perhaps even if you can), then
you may have more trouble ahead, even if you
can get the PAK registered.

Re: License

This license would never load on Itanium.
Class F licenses are not allowed on Itanium.

Re: License

two observations:

1. how did a "F" license ever work on your current Alpha? (see a SHOW LIC/UNIT display)

2. with the ALPHA options keyword, the LICENSE utility would never load (I think) this PAK into memory on an Integrity server ... you should get:

%LICENSE-W-WRGARCH, XXXXXXX license is not valid on this architecture

OK Thanks all...
Some info from the Alpha...

The PDS is an "F" Avail license. I don't know why it works...

I did the
as suggested. Moved the .com to the Itanium.
It worked! The license was registered on the Itanium.

%LICENSE-W-WRGARCH, PDS-SE-AXP license is not valid on this architecture

The Hardware_ID in the license data is the MAC address of the ethernet card of the Alpha.

Conclusion: The software will not run on the Itanium.

Thanks to everyone for your insight.

Can someone point me to software that can communicate to Siemens controllers on the H1 network?

Re: License

Registration worked. VMS supports common
LDB. We can make it work, contact me offline.
