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

Enterprise Deployment of Rational 7.1 products using IBM Installation Manager
IBM Installation Manager is a program that helps you install, update, modify, roll-back and uninstall packages on your workstation.
This document discusses the benefits of using Installation Manager over installation methods used with 7.0 and earlier versions of Rational Products and provides instructions on how to setup an Installation Manager repository, how to create a response file and how to perform a silent installation.
