Step-by-step guide to installing your Mainframe LMP license keys.


Notice: Due to changes in our systems, the structure of our keys are changing.  The keys are no longer CPU dependent. They are now site based.  You are still governed by the terms of your paper contact and should see no impact to performance.

Product license keys with dates beyond 2025

PTF RO97307 is required if you are running CA Common Services 14.1 AND Product license key contains DATE beyond 2025.  If you are not able to install the PTF at this time, please contact us so that we may generate a key valid through 2025.

Refer to CAS9125E - Invalid data: Key tampering detected or transcription error

There are changes required in the CALMP control cards. The attachment contains YOUR SITEID control card that will be required to process CALMP execution keys, which use the SITEID processing option.

The SITEID control card must be the first non-commented record in the KEYS dd. The rest of the records in the KEYS dd may be any mixture of Product Execution keys and optionally one EKG control card. If more than one Product Execution Key for the same product is found and they are valid then the one with the greatest expiration date is used.


For z/os, the company name must always be defined exactly how it was generated. It cannot be shortened or modified. Some company names are longer than others. In this instance, the company name can be moved to the next line (see example below), however the first line must contain a dash - in column 72.

SITEID(12345678) SITECODE(QS0YSHKWERJQKMP0AFLRU)                                                                              DASH (-) in column 72
