Updating a Trial license
If you downloaded the Db2® trial edition from the Db2 database software download site, and now want to update to a full license, you must update the product license certificate file.
Before you begin
You cannot use this method to update from one Db2 product to another.
If a previously licensed copy of a Db2 server product does not already exist, a single server fix pack image can be used to install any of the Db2 database server products. In this case, the license installed is a trial license.
If you installed the Db2 trial edition to try the Db2 functionality available in the Db2 add-on offerings, and now want to update to the full license for one or more Db2 offerings, you must add the license certificate file for the offering.
To update your trial license:
Get the license certificate file for the Db2 product or Db2 offering. The
license certificate file is available on the Activation CD from either:
- Passport Advantage®, or
- the physical media pack from IBM.
- Register the license certificate
file using the db2licm command. For example,
where filename is the full path name and file name for the license certificate file that corresponds to the product or Db2 offering you have purchased.
db2licm -a filename
