Guide for installing your Mainframe LMP license keys.


Site 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 the performance of your product(s).

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.


Sites that are running older versions of these products must take the following action to use
license keys with expiration dates beyond December 31, 2025:

  • If you are running CCS for z/OS 15.0, no further action is needed. All fixes required for keys beyond the year 2025 are included in the GA version of CCS 15.0
  • If you are running CCS for z/OS 14.1, install CCS 15.0. CCS 14.1 is end-of-service. If you cannot upgrade yet, apply RO97307
  • If you are running CCS for z/OS 14.0 or earlier, install CCS 15.0. These earlier versions are End-Of-Service and do not support license keys beyond December 31,
