Which version of the IBM SPSS Concurrent License Manager and Tools should I use?

Question & Answer


Question

I have deployed the latest release of an IBM SPSS client product.  Now I must deploy a corresponding version of the concurrent license manager.  I have multiple IBM SPSS client products and multiple available versions of the concurrent license manager.
Which version of the IBM SPSS Concurrent License Manager and Tools should I use?

Cause

Each new release of an IBM SPSS client product will ship with the very latest versions of the client-side licensing components from the contemporary concurrent license manager.  Problems of incompatibility can arise when the client-side licensing components are newer than the deployed concurrent license manager.
- The most recent release of the IBM SPSS Concurrent License Manager and Tools will always be backward compatible with older IBM SPSS client products, and therefore the older client-side licensing components.
- Upgrading to a new release of an IBM SPSS client product should always include an upgrade to the most recent IBM SPSS Concurrent License Manager and Tools.

Answer

Always use the most recent release available.
Currently, the most recent release of the IBM SPSS Concurrent License Manager and Tools is version 9.10.
It is available on x86_64 architecture for:
Microsoft Windows
IBM SPSS Concurrent Licensing Tools 9.10 - License Manager Microsoft Windows English (M08DREN)
Red Hat or Ubuntu Linux
IBM SPSS Concurrent Licensing Tools 9.10 - License Manager Linux x86-64 English (M08DQEN)
macOS
IBM SPSS Concurrent Licensing Tools 9.10 - License Manager Mac English (M08DSEN)
