Error description

  • You have deployed the IBM SPSS Concurrent License Manager and
    Tools 9.8 to a 3 server redundant pool.  Using a packet sniffer
    you notice the Statistics 27.0 client successfully obtain a
    license token from the Primary server in this group, then return
    it to the same server.  However, when you run jobs from command
    line via Python 3  you see the Statistics process looking to the
    Tertiary server to obtain the license and yet return it to the
    Primary server.
    

Local fix

  • This issue has been reported to IBM SPSS Statistics Developemt
    as well as to Gemalto/Safenet, makers of the Sentinel RMS
    License Manager.
    This issue will be resolved in a  future release.
