Switch from remote server to local

Learn how to switch from a remote license and UIM server to a local license.

A system owner has been using a remote SHK license server and UIM server. To change to a local token, the owner used the clientconfig command to change the LicenseContactServer value to localhost. This command has the following effects:
  • It effectively removes the UIMContactServer stanza from the XML file. The absence of this stanza indicates that no UIM server is to be used.
  • In this case, zPDT® looks in the local UIM database for a serial number. If one is present, it is used. If the local UIM database does not exist, or if the uimreset -l command was used, the serial number of the local token is placed in the local UIM database and then used by zPDT.
