Issue/Introduction

Do we need to install a license for PIM or PAMSC?
What is the ca_lic used for?

Environment

Release : 12.8

Component : CA ControlMinder

Resolution

You can safely remove the ca_lic from your system as far as PIM 12.8 SP1 and PAMSC 14.x is concerned because licensing is not utilised by these products.

To do so please follow the procedure as explained here

But you can also leave the ca_lic in place if it does not concern you.

For compatibility reasons PIM 12.8 SP1 still deploys ca_lic - even it is not utilised.
PAMSC 14.x does not deploy ca_lic at all.
