CA LMP (License Management Program), a subcomponent of the Common Services for z/OS CAIRIM component, provides a standardized method of tracking licensed CA software. LMP is used to verify the CA Software executing on a specific CPU is licensed for that specific machine.
The format of each key consists of the following:
PROD(pp) DATE(ddmmmyy) CPU(tttt-mmmm/ssssss) LMPCODE(kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk)
The CPU model and serial number are included in each LMP key. Are any CA product license keys dependent upon the model number?
CA Common Services for zOS executing the License Management Program (LMP) as part of the CAIRIM (Resource Initialization Manager) on a specific CPU.
Other than verifying the licensing of the CA Solution(s) executing on a specific CPU, there is no dependency upon the CPU model itself. The serial number and model of the CPU portion of the key are generated based upon information provided by the customer.
Information about the use, format, and purpose of the License Management Program can be found in the Common Services r14.1 documentation wiki.
