In order to use most IBM Rational software products, a specific license key is required. Product licenses are acquired through the IBM License Key Center and installed on one or more Rational License Key Servers to serve and manage licenses in the enterprise.

The Rational License Key Server includes an administration tool called License Key Administrator or LKAD (available for Windows only) to enter or import license keys, and change your license configuration. On UNIX, a set of system administration commands are available to perform similar administrative tasks. Details on LKAD and system administration commands are also available in the Rational Common Licensing Information Center.

Installation Instructions

For information on installing and configuring the IBM Rational License Key Server, review the following topics in the Rational Common Licensing Information Center.

The license server and vendor daemon versions are:
  • "lmgrd" [License Server daemon] = 11.10
  • "ibmratl" [Vendor daemon] = 11.10

Download Package

IMPORTANT: In Fix Central you can select a download mode (Download Director, FTP or HTTP). If you use Download Director to download the files, you will receive bits for all of the platforms. If you want to download specific platforms, select FTP or HTTP to download the files. You will be directed to individual links to each platform.
