Issue/Introduction

License information is showing as blank for CA XCOM for Linux PC 11.6 SP01. When looking at the /opt/CA/ca_lic/ca.olf and lic98.dat neither file shows that it contains any information.  File transfers still appear to be working, but we want to make sure the software is licensed properly.

Cause

CA Technologies is discontinuing the use of ALPKEYs and is phasing them out. There is no replacement for the license keys in the product. In 11.6 SP01, the license messages have been suppressed. 

Environment

Release: XCOM..01300-11.6-XCOM Data Transport-for AIX
Component:

Resolution

There is no need to do anything.  The ALPKEYS have been removed and no other physical license keys are required for the product.
