License Installation for Relational Architects Intl

Resolution

Prior to installing any RAI product, please follow the instructions below to define product keys and to startup the RAI Server Address Space. 

 

NOTE 1:  RAI Server is not an independent product but a component that provides common services to various RAI products. 

Unlike program products, it does not require license keys.

 

NOTE 2:  If RAI Server is up and running you can skip the following four steps and proceed directly to step (5).  

 

  1. Download and install the RAI Server software.  
  2. Authorize the RAI Server load library (the dataset whose low level qualifier is RSVLOAD).  
  3. Customize the JCL in member RAI0 of the RSVCNTL library.  Then copy the customized startup procedure for RAI Server into one of your installation's catalogued procedure libraries.  
  4. Start the RAI Server Address Space on each z/OS system where RAI software products requiring authorized services may run with the following MVS Console command:  

 /START RAI0

 

You should see the following messages in the JES message log associated with the RAI0 address space:

RSV263I - RAI Server parameters being read from member PARMS of DDNAME RSVCNTL

RSV500I - RAI Server Version v Release r Modification m Level A1             

RSV501I - (c) Relational Architects Intl - All rights reserved.              

 

*** AT THIS POINT RAI SERVER SHOULD BE UP AND RUNNING  ***

  

  1. Copy the product keys and paste them to the end of the PASSWORD member of the RAI Server control library 

(the dataset whose low level qualifier is RSVCNTL): 

 

  1. Refresh the RAI product passwords within the RAI Server Address Space with the following MVS Console command on each z/OS system where RAI Server is active:

 

/F RAI0,PASSWORD REFRESH

 

  1. Check whether the product keys are installed correctly by issuing the following MVS console command on each z/OS system where RAI Server is active:

 /F RAI0,PASSWORD DISPLAY

 

RAI Server should respond with the following messages:

RAI226I - Active Relational Architects Products                        

RAI227I - Product: SRS - SMART/RESTART Version: C10 - Status: VERIFIED  

 

NOTE:  Within the context of these instructions the terms z/OS system, system image and LPAR are synonymous.
