Re: how to restore ldb from cache to ldb file?

Yes .. it looks like (lmf issue & lmf register) is the way to go to recover the license from the kernel cache.

Try doing lmf issue to a file for each PAK and register back from the file. Syntax would be something like this,
# lmf issue advfs.lmf ADVFS-UTILITIES
# lmf register advfs.lmf
# lmf reset
PS: Try one by one, and make sure that your ldb gets updated when you register it.

HTH,
Abdul.

Re: how to restore ldb from cache to ldb file?

Hi,
I made the same think in order to learn how to recover from the same situation of course with my backup:)
But lmf issue didn't work :

#lmf reset
Warning Creating new license database
#
#
#lmf issue advfs.lmf ADVFS-UTILITIES
No entry in license database for this product

So I returned from my backup.
fyi

Re: how to restore ldb from cache to ldb file?

a lmf reset will clear the internal cache, so a "issue" command will not work! If reading the man-page the command ISSUE will extract a license from current cache, if cache is clear no extraction is possible!

Please read the man page of lmf for further informations....

Hi,
You can be sure that before asking to this forum I search in manual pages!!
Even tough i do not clear the database i can not extract the licenses from the cache:

root@mom:/var/adm/lmf>rm ldb

root@mom:/var/adm/lmf>

root@mom:/var/adm/lmf>lmf list

Error opening license database /var/adm/lmf/ldb

lmf: No such file or directory


root@mom:/var/adm/lmf>

root@mom:/var/adm/lmf>lmf list cache

root@mom:/var/adm/lmf>
root@mom:/var/adm/lmf>lmf issue advfs.lmf ADVFS-UTILITIES

Error reading license database /var/adm/lmf/ldb

It tries to take the license from the database not the cache...and i couldn't find the way to take the licenses from the cache in the manual pages...

Re: how to restore ldb from cache to ldb file?

if a "lmf list full for product" output will not work use the backup or the original license card delivered with the cd-rom.

Re: how to restore ldb from cache to ldb file?

OK,
This is the point. Steven's question is "is it possible to get ldb fila from the cache?"
So from your last answer I understand that mf issue is not solving the problem..
You must have a backup or the license card..
