Pinned topic I would need a 64 bits Linux FLEXlm server, installable by the latest IM

‏2013-06-24T12:26:43Z |

http://www.globes.com/support/fnp_utilities_download.htm provides for 64 bits variants of lmgrd. The only missing bit is from IBM: ibmratl

    IBM Rational License Key server(RLKS) is available only in 32 bit mode. But it works fine on a  64-bit machine. 

    I have attached  (ibmratl)[v11.8] binary for a Linux  License server.  You  can test and configure this binary in your environment/setup. 

    let me know how it goes ?

    You can refer this link to setup RLKS  with third party Vendors :-

    Please let me know if you have additional questions or concern.

    You can download  ibmratl or any other vendor daemon or lmgrd  binary  directly  from  Passport  Advantage website( http://www-01.ibm.com/software/in/howtobuy/passportadvantage/pao_customers.html ) .

    First , you would have to  download  Linux  RLKS ( Rational License key server ) package , untar the package and  then install it to get the desired binary file.

    Refer this link to know the steps :-

    Please let me know if  you need additional assistance.

    Thank you for offering your help!

    I already tried that. Even the 32 bits binaries don't work actually. They install fine with IM but the executables fail to run. It's the RLKS I got with IBM Rational Software Architect, on a supported OS for that product: Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS). And, of course, the executables don't work on the 64 bits variant either.

    So, I need a RLKS for Ubuntu, 32 and 64 bits.

     

    Thanks,

      J.

    Unfortunately, none of released version of RLKS are supported on Ubuntu 32 or 64 bit. You would have to setup RLKS on other supported Operating System.

    Refer this link to know detailed system requirements for a specific product :-

    I think that if a product is supported on a given OS, the FLEXlm server that ships with it should be supported on the same OS.

    I kind of guessed it isn't always the case. I just say it should be.

    I agree with you and completely relate to your point. I am certainly going to share your advice to concerned development  and management team. My observation is that since License server(Rational Common Licensing ) is a common application that ships with more than 60+ Rational Products and each Rational product has different system requirements( Operating System) so catering or fulfilling each one may take sometime.

    Thanks! Please let me know if you have additional questions.
