  • 1.  Missing lap license while lsfinstall

    Posted Tue June 14, 2022 09:16 AM
    I'm trying to install lsf Spectrum CE on ARM64. Hence I downloaded package named lsfsce10.2.0.12-armv8.tar.gz . While running lsfinstall, its failing with following error:

    Missing ./lap/license/LA_id
    Missing ./lap/license/LI_id
    Error: Missing one or more required license files.
    Exited with: 11
    Installation exiting ...

    1. Is lsfsce10.2.0.12-armv8.tar.gz correct package for ARM64 ?
    2. How to resolve missing lap license issue?

    The tar ball consists two parts, LSF package and LSF installation tool. You need to untar the file, then untar the LSF installation tool.  lap directory will be created.

    Checked with IBM DEV, itmay be related to the locale setting in their system. The locale "id" is not supported by LSF installer.

    Missing ./lap/license/LA_id
    Missing ./lap/license/LI_id

     

    From web search "id" locale may be from Indonesia. You can try changing their system locale to en_US to see if it will work.

    You can find out  system locale setting with command "locale".

     

    # locale

    LANG=en_GB.UTF-8

    LANGUAGE=en_GB:en

    LC_CTYPE="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_NUMERIC="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_TIME="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_COLLATE="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_MONETARY="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_MESSAGES="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_PAPER="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_NAME="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_ADDRESS="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.utf-8"

    LC_ALL=en_US.utf-8

    lsfsce10.2.0.12-armv8.tar.gz  is the correct package for ARM64.

    The issue may be related to the locale setting in the system. The locale "id" is not supported by LSF installer.

    You may run "locale" command to find locale setting. Suggest changing the system locale to en_US to see if it will work.

    I believe the root cause is due to Java 17 and newer updating language code of Indonesian to "id" from "in" as part of https://bugs.openjdk.org/browse/JDK-8267552. The installer package has "LA_in" and "LI_in" files in the license directory.

    As a workaround, try using an older version of Java on the install host.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was able to install LSF CE after downgrading java from 17.

    1. lsfsce10.2.0.12-armv8.tar.gz is the correct package for ARM64 
    2. We do not have id (Indonesian?) locale for LSF's license files. A workaround would be to set host locale to en (English)

    Thanks

    This issue was fixed in LAP for InstallAnywhere plug-in 1.5.2 version which is compatible with Java 17 version.   Need to use this LAP version to re-build the installation package. Please ask  people  who provide with you the installation package to work with LAP IBM support team to get the latest LAP IA plug-in version to re-build the installation package.  Thanks.
