Distributed License Check Software

This section describes the data sets (files) containing this software. All licensing data sets have names starting with the characters MLC. The vrs in the names represents the version of the license check software, which is not necessarily the same as the version of your Software AG mainframe product.

For instructions on copying the data sets from the product installation medium to disk and loading the libraries contained on the data set, refer to the appropriate installation procedure for your mainframe product.

z/OS Licensing Data Sets

The following licensing data sets are provided in z/OS environments:

Data Set Name Description
MLCvrs.LOAD Mainframe license check load modules
MLCvrs.JOBS Mainframe license check sample jobs

z/VSE Licensing Data Sets

The following licensing data sets are provided in z/VSE environments:

Data Set Name Description
MLCvrs.LIBR Mainframe license check load modules
MLCvrs.LIBJ Mainframe license check sample jobs

BS2000 Licensing Data Sets

The following licensing data sets (files) are provided in BS2000 environments:

Data Set Name Description
MLCvrs.MOD Mainframe license check load modules
MLCvrs.JOBS Mainframe license check sample jobs

License File

You must install a valid license file on all mainframe platforms in which your Software AG mainframe product is installed.

In a Natural z/OS environment, additional license files are required for Natural for zIIP: NAZvrs.LICS for batch/TSO, NCIvrs.LICS for CICS, NCFvrs.LICS for Com-plete and NIIvrs.LICS for IMS.

The license file is provided as an XML document (encoding is US-ASCII). If you receive the license file as an email attachment save it directly to disk. To avoid unwarranted modification, do not save it from a browsing tool or text editor. For example, Internet Explorer might change the XML encoding tag value to its local encoding.

The XML document can be viewed using a browsing tool or text editor on a PC. It can also be viewed on the mainframe using the DISPLAY function of the license utility, LICUTIL, described later in this document. The license file contains text, which represents the licensing information and a digital signature, the license key. Among other things, it displays Software AG legal notices and environmental information.

Warning:
The license file must remain in ASCII format -- even on the mainframe. It must not be modified. Any modification of the license file will invalidate the digital signature and the license check will fail. If the check fails, please contact your Software AG technical support representative.

Delivery and Installation

Your individual product license is shipped on the product installation medium as pppvrs.LICS data set (file) or as an e-mail attachment in the file format pppvr.xml.

Once the license file is received, either copy it from the product installation medium to disk or use native FTP commands to transfer it to your mainframe host before using it during the mainframe product installation.

During the mainframe product installation process, the license file is then loaded and processed as required by your Software AG mainframe product. Refer to the appropriate installation procedure for your Software AG mainframe product for further information.

Copying a License File to Disk

For instructions on copying a pppvrs.LICS data set (file) from the product installation medium to disk, refer to the appropriate installation procedure for your Software AG mainframe product.

Transferring a License File from PC to a z/OS Host Using FTP

If a license file is supplied as an e-mail attachment, you must transfer the attached license file from the PC to the mainframe using native FTP commands provided in this section.

Warning:
Using utilities instead of native FTP commands for the license file transfer may corrupt the license key.

Important:
Make sure to switch to binary transfer and verify that the resulting data set has RECFM=FB or RECFM=F and LRECL=80.

Start of instruction setTo transfer a license file from the PC to a z/OS host, perform the following steps:

  1. Save the product license file e-mail attachment as pppvr.xml on your PC's hard disk.

  2. Start an FTP session for communication with the z/OS host using the following FTP command:

    ftp host-name

    where host-name is the name of the z/OS host.

    Enter your z/OS host login ID and password.

  3. Switch to binary data mode (the license file must retain its format as ASCII during the transfer):

    binary
  4. Specify that the data set for the license file must be written with RECFM=FB and LRECL=80:

    quote site RECFM=FB LRECL=80 BLKSIZE=4000

    RECFM=F is also supported for product license files.

  5. Write the license file as a data set on the z/OS system:

    put pppvr.xml 'hilev.pppvrs.LICS'

    where hilev is the high-level qualifier (for example, SAG) to be used for the data set.

    This command will create a data set called hilev.pppvrs.LICS with RECFM=FB, LRECL=80, and the license information stored in the data set will be in ASCII format.

Transferring a License File from PC to a z/VSE Host Using FTP

If a license file is supplied as an e-mail attachment, you must transfer the attached license file from the PC to the mainframe using native FTP commands described in this section.

The FTP sample session described in these steps loads the license file onto a member of a z/VSE library. It is possible to load the license file onto a sequential z/VSE data set instead. For more information, refer to your FTP documentation.

Warning:
Using utilities instead of native FTP commands for the license file transfer may corrupt the license key.

Important:
Make sure to switch to binary transfer and verify that the resulting data set has RECFM=FB or RECFM=F and LRECL=80.

Start of instruction setTo transfer a license file from the PC to a z/VSE host, perform the following steps:

  1. Save the product license file e-mail attachment as pppvr.xml on your PC's hard disk.

  2. Start an FTP session for communication with the z/VSE host using the following FTP command:

    ftp host-name

    where host-name is the name of the z/VSE host.

    Enter your z/VSE host login ID and password.

  3. Once the FTP session has been established, you can optionally delete the default working prefix. To determine what the default working prefix is, enter the following command:

    pwd

    To delete the default working prefix, enter the following command:

    cd ..
  4. Point to the z/VSE sublibrary for the license file, for example, USERLIB.MYSUBLIB:

    cd USERLIB.MYSUBLIB
  5. Switch to binary data mode (the license file must retain its ASCII format during the transfer):

    binary
  6. Specify that the data set for the license file must be written with RECFM=FB and LRECL=80:

    quote site recfm fb 80

    RECFM=F is also supported for product license files.

  7. Write the license as a member in the libraries on the z/VSE system you identified in Step 4:

    put pppvr.xml pppvrs.LICS

    This command will write the license file pppvr.xml to a member called pppvrs.LICS. If you requested a library and sublibrary of USERLIB and MYSUBLIB in Step 4, the pppvrs.LICS file would reside in the USERLIB.MYSUBLIB library. The data set will have RECFM=FB, LRECL=80, and the license information stored in the member will be in ASCII format.

Transferring a License File from PC to a BS2000 Host Using FTP

If a license file is supplied as an e-mail attachment, you must transfer the attached license file from the PC to the mainframe using native FTP commands described in this section.

Warning:
Using utilities instead of native FTP commands for the license file transfer may corrupt the license key.

Important:
Make sure to switch to binary transfer and verify that the resulting data set has file type SAM and RECFORM=V.

Start of instruction setTo transfer a license file from the PC to a BS2000 host, perform the following steps:

  1. Save the product license file e-mail attachment as pppvr.xml on your PC's hard disk.

  2. Start an FTP session for communication with the BS2000 host using the following FTP command:

    ftp host-name

    where host-name is the name of the BS2000 host.

    Enter your BS2000 host user ID, password and account number (if relevant).

  3. Switch to binary data mode (the license file must retain its ASCII format during the transfer):

    binary
  4. Specify that the file for the license file must be written with FCBTYPE=SAM and RECFORM=V:

    quote file pppvrs.LICS,FCBTYPE=SAM,RECFORM=V
  5. Write the license file to the BS2000 host:

    put pppvr.xml pppvrs.LICS

Product License Check FAQs

Why has Software AG introduced a license check for products on the mainframe?

Software AG wants to ensure that customers run our software products only on mainframe machines for which they have valid and sufficient product licenses. This ensures that we have better control of the use of our software products. On other platforms (UNIX, Windows), the product license check has been established for many years.

Which information is contained in a product license?

A product license is a sequential file with US-ASCII text in XML format containing the following items:

  • Software AG header

  • customer information (Name, ID)

  • encrypted license key

  • license expiration date (or unlimited)

  • product information (product code, version, name)

  • environment information, including operating system type, CPU ID, LPAR ID, system name, and capacity measured in million service units (MSUs)

What exactly is meant by the CPU ID?

IBM defines the CPU ID as the "central processing complex node descriptor sequence number". It is the unique hexadecimal machine serial number without the machine model number.

The CPU ID and other machine data can be viewed by using the DISPLAY function of the license utility, LICUTIL, described later in this document.

Natural:

When Natural is installed and runs, you can also display CPU information by issuing the following Natural system command:

NATQVS

Which Software AG mainframe products require a product license?

  • Adabas

  • Natural

  • EntireX

  • Com-plete

  • Entire Net-Work

  • Entire System Server

How is the product license file installed?

Transfer the license file from the product installation medium or PC to disk as described in the installation documentation for your Software AG mainframe product or the various Transferring a License File from PC to a xxx Host section sections respectively. Then proceed as described in the appropriate installation steps for your mainframe product.

How can I read the product license file?

  • The product license file can be read on a PC by means of an XML editor (file type .xml) or any PC text editor.

  • The license utility, LICUTIL, provided with the Software AG mainframe license check software includes a function that allows you to display the license (DISPLAY function). For more information about the license utility, read Using the License Utility: LICUTIL.

  • Natural:

    When Natural is installed and runs, the license information can be displayed by using function L (Natural License Information) of the Natural SYSTP utility (refer to the Natural Utilities documentation).

How can I display machine-specific data?

The license utility, LICUTIL, provided with the Software AG mainframe license check software includes a function that allows you to display machine-specific data (DISPLAY function). For more information about the license utility, read Using the License Utility: LICUTIL.

Natural:

When Natural is installed and runs, you can also display CPU information by issuing the following Natural system command:

NATQVS

When is the product license checked?

The product license is checked every time the product is initialized. In addition, the product license is checked once a day.

Thirty days before the license expires, license check failure messages will warn you that it is time to obtain a new license.

If a license check fails, contact your Software AG technical support representative.

Which items of a product license are checked?

Product license items are divided into three logical license groups (License Key, Product-Specific Information and Machine-Specific Information) and checked in that order. If an inconsistency in any one of these groups is detected by the license checker, the succeeding items of that logical license group are also checked. Then the check terminates with corresponding error messages. For example, if the license key expires, the license key check terminates with an error before the license checker checks any product-specific or machine-specific information.

The following table identifies the product license items comprising each logical group:

Checking
Order

Logical License
Group Name

Product License Item Included
1 License Key The encrypted license key
2 Product-Specific Information
  • The expiration date (if any)

  • The operating system (z/OS, z/VSE or BS2000)

  • The product code (for example, ADA, NAT or EXX)

  • The product version, in either v.r. or v.r.s format.

3 Machine-Specific Information
  • The machine CPU ID

  • The machine capacity measured in MSU (million service units); only in z/OS and z/VSE environments

  • The logical partition (LPAR) ID (if applicable)

Does the Software AG mainframe license check software support a disaster recovery scenario?

Yes. Please contact your Software AG sales representative to obtain a license file which is able to support disaster recovery scenarios. The parameter DisasterRecoveryCPUIDs in this license file allows you to specify one or more CPU IDs of the machines to be used when your production machine fails. If you do not have these CPU IDs available, it is possible to specify the value Unknown. In this case, the license checker issues a warning message when a disaster recovery scenario is assumed.

In a disaster recover scenario, no machine data besides the CPU ID is checked.

How do I find out when the product license expires?

Thirty days before the license expires, license check failure messages will warn you that it is time to obtain a new license.

What happens if the product license is incorrect, insufficient or not installed?

An error message is issued and the product for which the license is checked either continues to run or terminates. The message is either output as a primary message or on the system console.

Natural:

When Natural is installed, there are three possible reactions: An initialization error message is issued and the Natural session terminates (1), an initialization error message is issued, but the Natural session continues execution (2), or a warning is issued on the system console (3).

  1. An error message is issued on the user terminal and the session terminates in one of the following cases:

    • the product license module is missing or incorrect, or it has been modified

    • incorrect operating system, product code or product version

  2. An error message is issued on the user terminal, but the Natural session continues execution:

    • the license expiration date has been reached.

  3. The session starts but a warning message is issued on the system console in one of the following cases:

    • Your machine CPU ID is not defined in the license or the machine capacity is higher than the value specified in the product license.

    • The logical partition (LPAR) ID has been checked but is not defined in the license.

    • The product license will expire within the next 30 days.

    This behavior may change in a future version of Natural, that is, the Natural session will terminate after the warning message is issued.

    The warning message is not repeated on the system console for every Natural session. It is issued only once per Natural buffer pool per day.

How can I get a new product license file if the delivered license file is insufficient for my environment?

Contact your Software AG sales representative to get a correct product license file according to your contract. It can be shipped by e-mail either in ASCII format or in the converted assembler input format.

Do I need separate product licenses for different machines?

No, it is possible to have multiple CPU IDs defined in one license file.

If I use the same Natural environment-independent nucleus on different machines, how can I handle the license files?

When Natural is installed, it is possible to have multiple CPU IDs defined in one license file. If all your CPU IDs are defined in your license file, you only need one license module that you link to all environment-independent nuclei. For detailed information, contact your Software AG sales representative.

Is it possible to have the license module separate from the Natural environment-independent nucleus?

Yes. When Natural is installed, the license module can be defined to be loaded dynamically during session start by means of the profile parameters RCA and RCALIAS (described in the Natural Parameter Reference documentation). Specify the following in the Natural parameter module or dynamically:

RCA=NATLIC,RCALIAS=(NATLIC,name)

where name is the name of your separately linked license module in the Natural load library.

Using this technique causes any statically linked license module to be replaced. This can be helpful for testing.

Using the License Utility: LICUTIL

The license utility, LICUTIL, is a batch utility that is used to check the license file, convert the license file into an assembler source module and display the license file and machine data.

LICUTIL is provided with Software AG's mainframe license check software contained on the data sets MLCvrs.LOAD (z/OS), MLCvrs.MOD (BS2000) and MLCvrs.LIBR (z/VSE).

Error messages for the license utility are documented with the rest of your Software AG product messages.

This section provides detailed information of each function provided by the LICUTIL utility. The functions can be executed by using the sample JCL described later in this section. The syntax of the functions that can be supplied with the LICUTIL command is shown in the following diagram:

CHECK {ZIIP}  
DISPLAY {ALL | LICENSE | MACHINE}  
END | EXIT  
HELP  
LOADLIC module-name  
MAKE

DATE={yyyy-mm-dd | yyyymmdd}
FORMAT={FREE|LEFT|STRUCTURED}
PRODVER=pppv.r.s
RMODE={ANY|24}

graphics/cbc3b.gif

The parameters and variable values that can be supplied with each function, are described in the following section. For explanations of the syntax symbols used in the diagram, please read the documentation for your specific Software AG mainframe product.

CHECK Function: Check the Product License

The CHECK function can be used to check the license file against the product's execution environment. The original license file must be provided as input along with the product code and version. If the license file is not valid, appropriate error messages are returned. LICUTIL terminates with one of the following return codes:

Return Code Meaning
0 The license check has been successful and the product continues to run.
4 Warning message(s) are written to the job log but the product continues to run.
8 Warning message(s) are written to the user terminal (or job log) but the product continues to run.
12 Error message(s) are written to the user terminal (or job log) and the product terminates.

Important:
In order to run the CHECK function successfully, you must have previously specified the SET PRODVER function to provide the product code and version number. The parameter ZIIP must be specified if the license is for a zIIP enabling product, for example, Natural Batch for zIIP.

The following items are checked, in the following order:

  1. License key.

  2. Product-specific data, including the product code, version, operating system and expiration date.

  3. Machine-specific data, including the CPU IDs, the machine capacity (measured in MSU, million service units) on only z/OS and z/VSE systems, and the logical partition (LPAR) ID.

DISPLAY Function: Display License Items and Machine Data

Use the DISPLAY function to display the contents of the product license items (license file, product-specific information and machine-specific information) and to display machine data (CPU ID, machine type, model ID, LPAR ID, MSU) about the machine on which the utility is being run.

The parameters of this function are described in the following table. At least one parameter is required.

Parameter Description
ALL Display the product license items and machine data. ALL is the default.
LICENSE Display only the product license items.
MACHINE Display only the machine data.

END/EXIT Functions: Terminate the License Utility

Use the END or EXIT function to terminate the license utility. These functions should be used if LICUTIL is running interactively in environments other than batch (for example, TSO under z/OS).

HELP Function: View LICUTIL Help

Use the HELP function to review a list of the available LICUTIL functions and their syntax.

MAKE Function: Convert the License File to Assembler Source

Use the MAKE function to convert the license file into an assembler source. After assembling this source (and linking it), the resulting license module can be used by defined Software AG products (for example, Adabas or Natural) instead of the license files. For more information about using license modules, refer to the installation documentation provided with your Software AG product.

Sample Output

Here is some sample output from this function when run on a z/OS system:

MLC9006 License converted to assembler output. 042 records written 
        to  SYSUT2.

LOADLIC Function

This function applies only on z/OS.

Use the LOADLIC function to load the license module after you converted (MAKE function), assembled and linked the assember source. module-name denotes the name of the license module in the load library.

LOADLIC can be specified only once per LICUTIL session.

After the license module has been successfully loaded by LOADLIC, you can further process the module using other LICUTIL functions such as CHECK and DISPLAY.

SET Function: Set LICUTIL Options

Use the SET function to set options for the license utility.

The parameters of this function are described in the following table. At least one parameter is required.

Parameter Description
DATE Sets the date for the license check. The default is today. The format of the date can be either yyyy-mm-dd or yyyymondd, where yyyy is the four-character year, mm is the two-digit month, mon is the three-character month abbreviation and dd is the two-digit day.
FORMAT Sets the display format for the DISPLAY function. There are three different formats:
  • Specify FREE (the default) to produce output without XML tags.

  • Specify LEFT to produce output with each XML tag in a new line.

  • Specify STRUCTURED to produce output with each XML tag indented.

PRODVER Sets the product code and version for the CHECK function. The format in which the product code and version should be specified is pppv.r.s.

For a zIIP enabling product such as Natural Batch for zIIP, the product code can consist of up to five characters: pppppv.r.s.

RMODE Sets the RMODE for the assembler source produced by the MAKE function:
  • Specify 24 (the default) for 24-bit addressing mode.

  • Specify ANY for either 24- or 31-bit addressing mode.
