This week’s posting deals with Rational licensing on the Windows platform. We are going to have a look at setting up a Windows Rational license server and how to configure it. It also turns out that with the arrival of Rational 7.1.2, a new version of the license server is required. Rational License Key Server (RLKS) 8.1.1 is now required to support the later versions of Rational tools (ClearCase, ClearQuest, etc).
Because of this new requirement, this article may be timely for you in planning and executing a license server upgrade. Additionally, we talk about the new client machine License Key Administrator (LKAD) 8.1.1 software. In addition to Rational 7.1.2 requiring RLKS 8.1.1, client machine installs of Rational 7.1.2 now install the client machine license administrator software (LKAD) as a separate software application now located in a separate package group.
