If we look around, there are couple of applications now a days which can make our lives easier and help us in our day-to-day activities, There are “n” number of applications, software, tools, utilities, and much more. Let's discuss these tools which could actually help people diagnosing issues related to licensing, We will discuss a few basic components and then dig deeper into the errors and the tips and tricks on how they can be resolved.
Lets start with some command line utilities which are packaged as a single executable called LMUTIL, On Windows systems, the different forms of utilities or command are available as shown below:
- lmborrow: Supports license borrowing
- lmdiag: Diagnose license checkout problems
- lmdown: Shuts down the vendor demons gracefully
- lminstall: Converts licenses to a different formats
- lmremove: Release the licenses to the free licenses pool
- lmreread: Tells License demon to re-read the license file
- lmstat: Displays the status of the license server
I have elaborated below on the necessary commands which will be of great help while troubleshooting licenses issues:
lmdiag allows you to diagnose problems when you can not check out a license
Syntax: lmdiag [-c license_file_list] [-n] [feature[:keyword=value]]
-c: Diagnose the specified files
-n: Run in non-interactive mode
feature: Diagnose this feature only
Keyword=value: If license file contains multiple lines for a feature, then using this keyword you can select a particular line, for lmdiag to report on
Self explanatory utility, allows for the graceful shutdown of the license demons (both lmgrd and vendor demons)
Syntax: lmdown -c license_file [-vendor vendor_demon] [-q] [-all] [-force]
-c license_file: use of the specified license file
-q: Don't prompt or print a header
-all: If multiple servers are specified, automatically shuts down all
-force: If licenses are borrowed, lmdown runs only from the system where the licenses server is running, and then the only if the user adds -force, -vendor vendor_demon : shuts down only this vendor demon
The reread utility will ask the license server to re-read the license file and start any new vendor demons that have been added ( if any ), In addition all other demons re-read the license file and there options file for change,
Syntax: lmreread [-c license_file] [-vendor vendor] [-all]
-c license_file : use a specified license file,
-all: If more than one lmgrd is specified, this will instruct all to re-read,
-vendor vendor: Only the vendor demon, specified by the vendor option, rereads the license file and the options file,
This lmstat utility will help you to monitor the status of all the network licensing activities, Demons are running or not, License file, Users of individuals features, Borrowed licenses, etc.
Syntax: lmstat [-a] [-c license_file] [-f [feature]] [-i [feature] [-s[server]] [-s [vendor]] [-t timeout_value]
-a: displays all the information
-c license_file: Uses the specified license files,
-f [feature]: Display users of feature,
-i [feature]: Display information from the feature definition line for the specified feature,
-s [server]: Display status of all the license file in LM_LICENSE_FILE,
-t timeout_value: Sets connection timeout to timeout_value.
Output of lmstat looks similar to:

LM TOOLS ( LICENSE TOOLS Windows only):
What do you mean by License Tools ( LM TOOLS ), License tools is an application which is used to manage licenses, or you can say that, it is a utility or a graphical user interface that allows you to administer the license server, Some of the functions this utility perform includes:
- starting, stopping, and configuring license servers
- getting system information, including hostids
- getting server status
- configuring using license file/services
NOTE: On Windows Vista run lmtools utility as an administrator.
Now the question arises that how this TOOL can help an individual to manage the licenses. In order to understand this we need to understand the entire structure of this tools and its functions.
To start with, this tool will be by default installed while installing the Rational License Key Server on windows. FLEXlm license manager LMTOOLS.exe as a service in Windows is described in the technical note (link below)
Configure Services (Config Services):
Service Name: We can specify the service name “FLEXlm”.
Figure will show you how to configure services in LMTOOLS, For instance this will have the location of different files and information on the logs as well.
- Path to the Lmgrd.exe file : Physical location of the Lmgrd.exe file.
- Path to the License file : Physical location of the license file.
- Path to the debug Logs : Physical location of the debug logs files.
Once the paths are defined we can save the services using “save service” tab ( right top corner ).
You may always view the logs for any troubleshooting prepossess by clicking on “View Logs” and close using “Close Logs”.
It's always recommended to Enable 'Use Services'; 'Start Server at Power Up', In order to maximize the output.
If in case there are issues with the licenses and you have trouble resolving them, then you can always contact support, Now an important and or helpful step would be to collect everything ( Logs, License file, hardware info, etc ) in a folder and share it with the team for further analysis.
This is no more a hectic job, of getting into each and every directory or launching different application gathering data etc etc...To make your job easier, let me introduce you to a vibrant tool which will do all this in seconds, called “IBM Support Assistant Lite”. Also known as ISALite for Rational Common Licensing, this is a small download-able package that allows you to automate data collection steps when data are requested by Rational support team. This particular package is specific to Rational Common Licensing product, as well as the products listed below. The tool will gather initial data needed for troubleshooting your problems with the product. Tool usage and what is collected would have a detailed description on our website and which can be easily located by clicking on the below given link.
Starts of the server:
When you start the license server be sure that you direct the output into a local log file where you can examine it, the log file often contains useful information.
Service which needs to be started should be selected “(Lmgrd)” in this case, If it is not the case, go to “config services” tab, select the service to be used, and then return to “Start/Stop/Re-read tab.
- Stop Server tab will stop the server once executed and will pause all the applications, Using the command line on a Windows system running the FLEXlm license server:
Stopping license server : lmutil lmdown -c
While LMTOOLS is the recommended method, However, it is also possible to start and stop the license server using the Windows services applet. To do so:
Navigate to the "Services" control window. Generally this is listed as an item under "Administrative Tools" under the "Control Panel."
Locate the "License Server" service. If you have manually created the service, locate the name of that service instead.
Double-click the service to bring up the Properties window, and use the appropriate buttons to Stop, Start, Restart, Pause, or Resume the License Server
- Start Server tab will start the server and resume all the services and start serving licenses,
- Re- reading the license file, will help incorporating any changes made to the license file and you may need them to be effective immediately,
- If we click on advance tab it will give you different boxes, which will help you:
Restrict lmdown to work only from node where lmgrd is running. Disable inremove from the license file.
Functional Check if the Server is Running:
Click on “Server Status” tab and then on “Perform Status Enquiry”
Please see the result in the below given window,
1. Port number indicates in this window corresponds to the SERVER line of the license file used to manage connections,
2. It will show you the path to the license file (Location of the License file).
3. Shows the version of FLEXlm, and indicates the state of the license manager if started or not.
If you see the screen above (and the output) it will show the status of the license server (it started detecting lmgrd process) So the “License Server Status : 27000@CYPRES”
License file(s) on CYPRES: E:\FlexLM\License (This is the physical path of the license file),
Proceeding further we have the version of the License Server (License Server UP (MASTER) v10.1).
Then it will show that the Vendor daemon status and Feature usage information (If the licenses are issued and how many are in use), Please see the output below,
Vendor daemon status (on CYPRES):
ibmratl: UP v10.1
Feature usage info: How many licenses are served/issued from the server and how many in use,
Users of Distributor: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
Users of Presenter: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
Users of DOORS: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
Users of DRL: Total of 3 licenses issued; Total of 2 licenses in use
If there is an issue with the License server or with License file it will throw an error and will not have the feature usage info as license issued. References:

No, this isn't an opinion missive or thought leadership article on how to ask for feedback. No, today is all about transparency and clarity. I'd like to take this Think Friday opportunity to beg, grovel, and blatantly outright ask for your input.
We've been running the Rational Support social spaces for well into three years now, gaining on four in some spaces. All our efforts are of course focused on providing you, our clients, with higher value and better ways of finding solutions. Over this time we've sent out a few surveys to get a sense of direction and sentiment from you directly. But today, we'd like to change our tactic and specifically ask you directly for feedback in our comments to let us know how we're doing.
If you're anything like us you know how valuable direct feedback is, which is one of the reasons we are making this call to you. We like to work in an open, transparent, and authentic fashion, so it shouldn't come as any surprise to know that, in part, this request is also coming to help with our strategy work for the next year, along with year end review cycles.
So, if you've found our efforts here and in our other social presences valuable, we'd love to hear it in the comments section below, or through any medium with which you are most comfortable. But, we'd also love to hear it if you haven't found value too! Of course if the latter is true we'd also like to hear how we can better serve and improve things for you. Your feedback here will be critical to the directions we take in the coming year as well as the level of focus, effort, and resources we devote to these spaces as well. And don't forget that feedback on specific content you find in support portal is also loved and HGIHLY valuable! Take a moment and watch the video below to see what we do with document feedback and how it helps us improve our overall support...
And here's a preemptive thank you to any and all who comment and provide feedback. Know that if you do, you will be our best friends EVER.

We are here to get some insight about the origin, functionalities and the licensing aspects of the Rational Integration Tester.
As most of us are aware, Green Hat is now an IBM Company. With the legacy products of Green Hat now integrated with the Rational brand, a new tool by name, Rational Integration Tester has its presence felt in the IBM Product list.
Green Hat portfolio’s new addition adds a whole new advantage to IBM Rational QM Portfolio:
- IBM Rational Test Workbench (RTW/RIT)
- IBM Rational Performance Test Server (RPTS)
- IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server (RTVS)
Previously named Green Hat Tester, Rational Integration Tester, now a part of Rational Test Workbench, is used to create functional and performance tests for SOA messaging systems to be run locally.
The product is used to simulate virtualization reality, which is the ability to simulate services, without the actual service being run... much like a game of virtual golf...
For example, if you have to simulate eBay, without accessing it directly (and buying things!). You would build tests using the service definitions from eBay (which are publicly available) and you could then run those tests as 'stubs' within RTW/RIT. The application that would have pointed at eBay is then pointed at the RIT stub which sends back sensible replies when called. This enables a customer to build a testing environment without all of the (expensive) systems normally required.
Features included in Rational Integration Tester are:
➢ Automatically create test plan documentation.
➢ Support for many different protocols, including JMS, IBM MQ, Sonic MQ, TIBCO, TCP/IP, UDP/IP and SmartSockets. An API let's you write your own transports.
➢ Functional component simulation.
➢ Automatic test reports created from test results.
➢ Regression testing.
➢ Record and playback messages.
➢ Integrate tests with databases.
➢ Manipulate XML documents.
➢ Edit messages using intuitive GUI, or a text editor in XML.
➢ Capture messages, edit them and republish them.
➢ E-mail messages to colleagues in remote locations.
➢ Share messages with other Green Hat, an IBM Company, products like Rational Test Virtualization Server and Rational Performance Test Server
Currently Rational Integration Tester does not have trials on ibm.com. To get an evaluation copy, please contact IBM Planet wide as per the link http://www.ibm.com/planetwide/
Overwhelmed by the features available in Rational Integration Tester, you may want to purchase the license. Wouldn't you like to know the types of licenses available and if it suits your need. Then let’s have an overview of the licensing for Rational Integration Tester.
Rational Integration Tester is a SDP (Software Development Platform) based product and hence, the legacy Activation kits and Floating licenses are available.
However, the Floating license is a bit different from the conventional IBM SDP products and are not available individually for Rational Integration Tester, instead, combined with the Rational Test Workbench.
Two types of licenses are :
➔ IBM Rational Integration Tester v8.0 Activation Kit
➔ IBM Rational Test Workbench Floating License Key
IBM Rational Performance Test Server (RPTS) and IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server (RTVS) does not require a separate license, as software download from Passport advantage gets a pre loaded license.
• Would I get only one license of Rational Integration Tester without the other inclusions of Rational Test Workbench?
• Yes, an Activation Kit would serve the cause, which is exclusive to Rational Integration Tester.
• Would I get licensing support for the Rational Integration Tester from IBM? If so, How?
• Green Hat legacy customers will continue to use their legacy Green Hat keys, until they renew their Subscription and Support with IBM. For Existing Green Hat customers there is no immediate change in regard to legacy Green Hat License Keys.
• If I have a license purchased from Green Hat for Rational Integration Tester, am I entitled for support from IBM?
• Yes. IBM provides a conversion summary of the legacy Green Hat Tester licenses to IBM Rational Integration Tester. To get more information, please contact the respective Account Manager from IBM.
• How do I get my license for Rational Integration Tester generated?
• Rational License Key Center hosts the Rational Integration Tester licenses. Rational Integration Tester does not have a separate license as it is a component of the Rational Test Workbench. Follow the blog for How to generate IBM Rational Products license keys from IBM Rational License Key Center website
You might be interested to know more about the legacy Green Hat product additions to IBM. Refer the link below for more and apt information.
At the time of configuration, you might run into an error 'The server is available, but does not serve license keys for IBM Rational Integration Tester'. Refer the tech note below for diagnosis and resolution of the error.
Configuring floating license for Rational Integration Tester results in a warning
