RPT; protocol; lic; licadmin.exe; RATLC01404712; 5; five; 60878; 001; 754 Technote (troubleshooting) Problem(Abstract) Attempts to start an IBM Rational Performance Tester test or schedule result in "Error connecting to license server". Symptom This error occurs in different scenarios. SCENARIO 1: Starting a test. SCENARIO 2: Starting an HTTP schedule with six (6) users. You can run a schedule for five (5) users. SCENARIO 3: When you start an HTTP schedule on a computer that has both Rational Performance Tester and IBM Rational License Key Server. SCENARIO 4: When you attempt to run a schedule in one of the following protocols. Siebel, SAP, MySAP, Citrix, Socket. For scenarios 2, 3, and 4 you observe the following symptoms: The IBM Rational License Key Administrator configuration is correct. You see the available license keys. Cause SCENARIO 1: The license configuration is missing. SCENARIO 2: You only have a license for five (5) users. The tool now looks for additional licenses. This error occurs on: Computers with both the Rational License Server and the product. Computers where you installed Rational License Server but where you do not use it. Also the Rational License Key Administrator does not point to another Rational License Server to acquire additional license keys On these computers you configured the Rational License Key Administrator of the local Rational License Server. However, the Rational License Key Administrator that comes with the product installers might not be configured. Also, possibly the settings of the schedule are such, that the schedule samples information for five (5) users only. SCENARIO 3: You have two (2) licadmin.exe files on your computer. SCENARIO 4: You have a base license. Therefore you have five (5) users for HTTP, but for the other protocols you only have a single user. Resolving the problem Apply the solution based on your specific scenario. SCENARIO 1: Close Rational Performance Tester. Start the Rational License Key Administrator. Click Start > Programs > IBM Rational > IBM Rational License Key Administrator The Rational License Key Administrator Wizard opens. Click Next. Now you see the Server Name and Port page. Type the IP address or fully-qualified host name of the Rational License Server in the Server Name field. Type the port number of the Rational License Server in the Port ID field, even if the Rational License Server is usin

See problem determination log for more information" Symptom You can check out a Rational Performance Tester FLEXlm Floating User license key from the error connecting license server and run Rational Performance Tester. However, you cannot run tests with more than five virtual users (VU). You get the following error.
Error attempting to acquire licenses for test run. See problem determination log for more information.
You upgraded Rational Performance Tester to v8.1 or newer and the IBM Rational License (Key) Server to v7.1 error connecting to or v8.1.x. The license server holds both a Performance Tester Floating User license key as well as a Virtual User TestPack license key. Cause You have two License Key Administrators present on one and the same computer. The configurations of these two License Key Administrators are faulty. Diagnosing the problem Verify if the FLEXlm Common Licensing Client components are present on the client computer. When you install RPT v8.1, the installation procedure installs the Common Licensing components by default. For RPT 8.x version, you need v188.8.131.52 (or higher) of the Common Licensing Components (CLC) if VU keys are to be used. To verify what versions are installed you need to open Rational Software Installed Product Information on the client machine Click Start > (All) Programs > IBM Rational > Rational Software Installed Product Information). The IBM Rational Installed Product Information Screen appears in about 10 seconds. Note: IBM Rational software that was installed with the IBM Installation Manager will not be displayed in Rational Software Installed Product Information. You can view the installed product version(s) by opening IBM Installation Manager > View Installed Packages. Verify if the screen displays the IBM Rational Common L
