Pinned topic How do I download my DB2 license from Passport Advantage?

‏2013-06-11T20:07:09Z |

Each DB2 database product has its own license key. Starting with DB2 Version 9.1, the license file for DB2 products is shipped separately in a file called the Activation key. This is done for convenience so that downloading the license file takes less time due to its small size.

If you purchased a DB2 V10.1, V9.8, V9.7, V9.5, or V9.1 product then you can obtain license key from Passport Advantage.  The steps are completely outlined by technical article 1305417http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21305417

    Hello!  We've had a number of clients respond through feedback to our technical documents indicating that they have further questions or comments that require additional dialogue.  Unfortunately, our feedback is anonymous, so unless an email address or other contact information is included, we have no way to get back in touch with you.
     
    Within DB2 support, the management team asked if we could somehow link our documents to the forums so that we could invite more discussion - like this!   As a start, we chose about 30 technical articles and "seeded" the forum with initial entries so that we could have a starting place for conversation.  The documents have now been updated with links to the forums as well.  
     
    Hopefully, we will make DB2 support better by providing more interaction around our technical information!

    Hello,

    I followed the technote of how to download a DB2 license from Passport Advantage.

    The document was really great, everything looked good - except the fact that the PartNumber of the required DB2 10.1 Connect license was not found in the system. I sent this to a supportID, not sure whether this was the correct ID.

    So I want to ask in this forum about the missing activation key ....

    Many thanks for comments,

    Susanne

        Google db2 "activation key part numbers"

        There are a number of documents depending on your version.  Example - here's the one for 10.5:  www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21641360

        Is that what you are looking for?

    sorry but I've downloaded the  DB2 connect Client 10.5 for Windows 64bits (v10.5fp4_ntx64_client.exe)

    I've installed it. But I don't have a license.

    When I execute the command "db2licm -l" ,  here is the result:

    "D:\node_js\amar>db2licm -l
    Nom du produit : "IBM Data Server Client"
    Identificateur du produit : "db2client"
    Informations sur la version : "10.5"

    And When iI call the nodejs module IBM_DB , I have a Sql Error:

    [Error: [IBM][CLI Driver] SQL1598N  Une tentative de connexion au serveur de b
    ase de données a échoué en raison d'un problème de licence.  SQLSTATE=42968
     

    thanks for your help.
