Issue/Introduction

Need to have multiple DRAS license servers to allow connection to multiple LPARS that are not linked. 

Cause

This is an enhancement to the product.

Environment

Release: 12.1
Component: WBVLUW

Resolution

This enhancement has been provided in SO08781 CUMULATIVE BUILD 199 FOR WEB VIEWER 12.1 or higher. The instructions are in SI08800 HOW TO ADD MORE AUTHENTICATION OPTIONS FOR LOGIN.

The sign on page has been updated to provide a drop down list for the DRAS license server to connect to. The names of the possible DRAS server (up to 10) are configured by editing the WVprofile.properties file.

For example:
LICENSE.SystemID=SYS1                                         
LICENSE.DRASServer=DRASSVR
LICENSE.DRASServer1=SYSE:DRASSVR
LICENSE.DRASServer2=SYSB:DRASSVRA
LICENSE.DRASServer3=SYSB:DRASSVRD
LICENSE.DRASServer4=SYSS:DRASSVR
LICENSE.DRASServer5=SYSB:DRASSVRU
LICENSE.DRASServer6=SYSJ:DRASSVR
LICENSE.DRASServer7=SYSN:DRASSVR
LICENSE.DRASServer8=SYSV:DRASSVR
