Introduction:

New z/OS system  startup, CA Allocate gets LMP key violation at startup.

Background:

When you have the below messages in VAM started task

VAM0003 LICENSE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (LMP) REQUIRES CAIRIM WHICH HAS NOT BEEN INSTALLED FROM THE CA COMMON SERVICES TAPE

VAM0003 PLEASE CONTACT TOTAL LICENSE CARE (TLC) TO SECURE CAIRIM AND YOUR LMP CODES

VAM000I LMP CODE KEY CHECK *** NOT POSSIBLE***

that means something probably goes wrong during the IPL sequence initialization.

Environment:
z/OS
Instructions:

In such case, you need to check when CAIRIM (CAS9) initialized the LMP keys for the CA Products and when CA Allocate here starts.

You will probably notice that CAS9 was in process to install the LMP keys and unfortunately CA Allocate starts before its corresponding LMP keys were loaded in memory.

The best solution to avoid this problem with CA products in general is to use the CAIRIM AUTOCMD way to start the CA products at the end of CAIRIM processes. So you will be never get any LMP key initialization problems.

Additional Information:

If you any questions, please contact CA technical support.
