    Unanswered: UDB and licensed processor

    What happens when the no. of processors on the server exceed the "No. of Licensed processor",does database manager still uses the extra processors beyond the limit defined?

    Re: UDB and licensed processor

    V7 it does, you'll just keep getting message in your diag.log, On V8 we havn't run into that yet, but it looks like it would, we get the mesages all the time, and it hasn't hurt anything yet

    I am using v.8.1.4 on AIX 5.1

    The Applícation runs on all processors
    even if they're not licensed, but it continuosly
    writes error messages to the db2diag.log,
    I also have a suspicion that it logs differently

    If you have the original installation CD,
    just find the .lic file and run the db2licm
    command with the -a flag, then read the
    password and run it again with the -n option
    to set the number of processors.

    db2licm -l

    if you see 'Soft Stop' as the Enforcement policy, then you will be able to use all processors ...

    I think licm -n only needs instance ownership

    Update Licm

    Hi,

    You can go ahead and update the number of processors using the LICM command and then after the instance is restarted db2 will go ahead and use the processors.

    Regards

    option.
