    Unanswered: uninstalling features on udb 9.5

    we had some folks who installed udb 9.5 with DPF and storage optimization but never utilized either. to avoid chargeback for the features we want to uninstall them with no impact to the actively running databases involved. anyone out there have experience doing that? any suggestions or warnings?

    These Features are included in every Enterprise Server Installation. I doubt that you can deinstall it. You could just implement another License-File.

    What does "db2licm -l" show?
    If your license does not include these Features, you can prevent the Usage with "db2licm -e db2ese HARD".

    it looks like the installer put in a license key even though not properly purchased

    DB2 Database Partitioning: "Licensed"
    DB2 Performance Optimization ESE: "Not licensed"
    DB2 Storage Optimization: "Licensed"
    DB2 Advanced Access Control: "Not licensed"
    DB2 Geodetic Data Management: "Not licensed"
    IBM Homogeneous Federation ESE: "Licensed"
    DB2 pureXML ESE: "Not licensed"

    so I don't believe the HARD stop on the license will work. correct? uninstall is the only option?

    Hi,

    sorry, was busy.
    The License-Combination looks strange. Where do you got the License-File from? Have seen similar Lincenses on DB2s for SAP.

    Have you used any of these Features so far? I think that applying a 'normal' ESE License-File should be enough. db2licm -r and db2licm -a

    Cheers

    got that off a db2licm -l but maybe I can just do the -r and get them out of there so that they do not show up in the ILMT (ibm license management tool) from which audits are based. Thank you much!

    $ db2licm -l

    You should be able to remove the existing licenses (using db2licm), and reinstall the plain ESE license file. See the Command Reference manual for db2licm.

    Talking

    thank you. removed the offending products using the db2licm and now testing to make sure everything works. added a hard stop on unlicensed products to make sure we do not violate any license agreements. And thanks, appreciate the input!
