The IBM Rational Software Development Platform(SDP) is an open, proven, complete and modular solution comprised of a comprehensive set of tools, proven best practices and professional services. This modular solution provides all the tools that individuals and teams need to successfully build, integrate, extend, modernize and deploy software and software-intensive systems.
By automating and integrating the business process of software development, the IBM Rational Software Development Platform helps organizations create software that differentiates their business performance.
Licenses for SDP products are of two types:
Activation Kit are node lock licenses. These licenses are not specific to any host IDs. These are .jar files which needs to be applied to the product using Installation Manager (IM). Even though these .jar files does not contain any "Host Details" of a client machine, you will have to use the the activation kit based on the quantities purchased.
For example, if you have purchased 2 quantities, you can use the same activation kit on two machines (Provided both the machines have the same version of the product). There are different activation kits for different versions of the application. Note: Using the activation kits on more machines other than the purchased orders will lead to compliance issues.
2) Floating Keys:
Floating keys are based on Client/Server architecture. In order to use a floating license key one needs to install "Rational License Key Server". Let us discuss how a floating key works. For example, if you have ordered 5 Floating keys and assuming that the license server is UP and serving the keys and your users are pointing to the license server and able to communicate with the server machine. Then, the first user who launches the application, will be able to check out 1 license for that application. Likewise, the second, third, fourth and fifth user will launch their applications and successfully check out a key each. Now, if the sixth user has to launch the application and check out the key, he/she needs to wait until one of the user logs out of the application and closes it. This way that license is freed and available for the next user. Having understood the working of a Floating license key, let us now proceed to know how to configure the SDP applications to pick up one.
d) Accept the agreement
h) After successful communication, navigate through the on screen instructions and hit finish

This week we bring the spotlight to Sabrina Hippert / Wimsatt. Don't let both her names fool you, Sabrina really is just one person providing all that Accelerated Value support along with the rest of her team in RCS. You may THINK she is two people, though, as she seems to have her hands in a number of projects in addition to her role in AVP. I'm not sure where she even finds the time to travel, but she does! And while you're spending the time here, don't forget to see our previous interviews with our other busy peeps in RCS!
Tell us a little about yourself: who are you, what is your role in Rational Client Support?
My name appears as both Sabrina Wimsatt and Sabrina Hippert. I am one of the Accelerated Value Leaders in Rational Client Support.
How long have you been working for IBM and Rational?
I have been with Rational since April of 2000. I started in Modeling support as a TSE for Rose, XDE, RSA, and RMC, went to a Staff TSE, team lead and then come to AVP about 2 1/2 years ago.
What are you currently working on?
I am currently focused primarily in the Requirement Management (RM) space, but I also assist in modeling and RMC. I am working with a particular client on helping them implement a short term (RM) solution.
Describe a normal day for you.
There is no normal day for me, they vary. I am generally on the phone in meetings with my clients, development, DPP /beta team, or support.
Are you a gadget person? What type of gadgets do you use?
Not really, but I can't live without my cell phone. I use it all the time and it helps me stay connected to what is going on.
What is your favorite part of working for Rational Client Support?
I love working with all the different teams in support and actually talking to them face to face.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about keeping my clients happy, being close to my family/friends and I love to bake.
What tip or trick would you like to share with the class?
It is very important to network with people both in Rational and outside, don't be afraid to reach out to them and ask for help or ask if you can help them.
How do you define success?
Success means that I don't compromise my integrity, working with people who need my help, having time to spend with my family so an equal work life balance, providing value to others, meeting my commitments, and being happy with where I am today.
In your spare time, if you have any, what hobbies or activities interest you?
I enjoy traveling, I just got back from Aruba in September and that was such a beautiful island with so many nice people. I enjoy going antiquing, collecting vintage costume jewelry. I also love to bake, and play Texas Holdem poker with my husband.
Have you worked on any projects that you feel were exceptionally exciting for you?
I have been excited about a few projects (audit / internal tooling training) and also teaching client management modules. I enjoy teaching since it allows me to share my experiences, get to know people. And also, I get excited to bake.
If you were stuck on a technology deprived island, what single technology could you not live without?
My cell phone
How do you grow your technical skills?
I learn new things by participating with clients in the Betas and DPP programs along with attending the RCS training courses.
