  • 1.  Logs as out of license even though it is a licensed program that does not require a license key.

    Posted 26 days ago

    I have applied PTF "SI84893" but 5770JS1 (Extended Job Scheduler) is logged as out of license.
    Is there any way to resolve this issue?

    @Saori Koinuma According to IBM documentation, unfortunately there is no supported way to stop those license messages if you installed the product before applying the PTF. 

    https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/products-are-no-longer-listed-wrklicinf-show-dsplickey-or-call-qsfwinv

    *Note: If you installed the mentioned products before applying the PTF from APAR SE79942 that removes licensing, you may still receive CPI9E75 or CPI9E76 messages indicating that the Grace period expires in xx days on xx/xx/xx even if the licensing was removed. This is normal and with a license key no longer needed for the mentioned products with the PTF for APAR SE80680 applied, this will not cause any issues when the grace period expires. There is not a supported way to stop the grace period or the grace period message for only specific products, so if the PTF for APAR SE80680 is applied, then just ignore the CPI9E75 and CPI9E76 messages but for only the products whose licensing were removed. To check for remaining licensed products that will be expiring within so many days, use the SQL QSYS2.LICENSE_INFO :
    Example in STRSQL or SQL Manager for checking within 14 days of expiration:
    SELECT * FROM QSYS2.LICENSE_INFO WHERE LICENSE_EXPIRATION <= CURRENT DATE + 14 DAYS

    Thank you for telling me about it.
    I understand that SI84894 (SE79942) PTF will be applied before the Job Scheduler is installed.

    Dear Koinuma-san

    Bruno's message was about seeing Grace Period Expiration message but you mentioned in you post about "out of license".   I tend to see that Bruno's post may not be relevant to your case. Did you actually see Grace Period Expiration message in QSYSOPR ?

    Dear Satid-san

    Thank you for all your answers.

    Sorry, I did not explain correctly.
    Message ID: CPI9E75 was given and said that there was a grace period message.

    Dear Koinuma-san

    A Google search reveals that SI84893 needs 3 pre-requisite PTFs in 5770999 as well.  Please check if these pre-req PTFs are in your system or not.

    REQ  LICENSED           PTF/FIX  LEVEL

    TYPE PROGRAM  RELEASE   NUMBER   MIN/MAX  OPTION
    ---- -------- --------- -------  -------  ------
    PRE  5770999  V7R4M0    MF67721   00/00    0000
    PRE  5770999  V7R4M0    MF67863   00/00    0000
    PRE  5770999  V7R4M0    MF68035   00/00    0000
