Introduction:

CA TPX uses CA Common Services LMP keys to activate the various components of CA TPX.

Question:

We are planning to remove the LMP key O5 for the TPX Windows option. How can we verify whether we are using this option or not?

Answer:

With Windows LMP key active, you will see this messages in the TPX startup:

TPX9925 OPTION WINDOWS OF UNICENTER CA-TPX IS AUTHORIZED

When you remove the LMP keys, these messages will disappear after the next IPL.

You can display how many Windows sessions are active via TPXOPER: D APPL. Then select the Windows applid (as below).
