Why does fsadm complain about licence when extending filesystem

This is a L-class server running 11.11 (PA_RISC)
We run the command lvextend and then
fsadm:
[orasrv4:/tmp]# fsadm -F vxfs -b $(expr 1024 \* 500) /tmp
fsadm: You don't have a license to run this program
We have never seen this response ???
Is this related to having OnlineJFS ??
[orasrv4:/tmp]# swlist -l product | grep JFS
JFS B.11.11 The Base VxFS File System
OnlineJFS B.11.11 Online features of the VxFS File System

We think we have OnlineJFS.

Why do we get such a response?
Thanks

Check your license with vxlicrep - after 24th June many licenses are expired.

Hi!

For 11.11 you can check the license with vxlicense -t HP_OnLineJFS.

Re: Why does fsadm complain about licence when extending filesystem

Frank,
There is a expiration date for this product in HP-UX 11.11:
/usr/sbin/vxlicense -p



vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Feature name: HP_OnlineJFS [50]

vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Number of licenses: 1 (non-floating)

vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Expiration date: Sun Jun 24 05:00:00 2007 (11.4 days ago)

vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Release Level: 22

vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Machine Class: All

vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Site ID: 0

To solve this, install the permanent license (don´t reboot). Contact HP Support to get the file. After this:

/usr/sbin/vxlicense -p



vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Feature name: HP_OnlineJFS [50]

vrts:vxlicense: INFO: Number of licenses: 1 (non-floating)

Re: Why does fsadm complain about licence when extending filesystem

You need to request a new codeword and re-install onlinejfs.

Send a email to HP licensing email address is

hplicense.na@hp.com

include SAID of system with licensing issue.

They will give you a codeword for OnlineJFS for 11.11 (if you are entitled to it).

Use cd 5013-4962

Product: B3929CA

Disk 1 of Sep 2006 11.11 Application Software
