With release 12.0 and 12.1 of Web Viewer and above, the license key is an LMPKEY installed on the LPAR where the primary DRAS is running.


The keys are read in through the Common Services CAS9 proc found in your CAW0PROC library. The proc executes PGM=CAIRIM which reads in the LMP keys from the Common Services CAW0OPTN dataset which contains a member name of KEYS. The KEYS member contains the LMP codes for all CA products that require a key. 


  1. Put the DRAS license key into the KEYS file on the LPAR where the primary DRAS (the one you chose during the configuration of Web Viewer) is running.
  2. The KEYS files location is specified by the KEYS DDNAME in the CAS9 PROC on each LPAR.
  3. Many sites choose to execute the CAS9 proc as a started task during an IPL,  but it can be run at any time that you need to update or refresh LMP keys between IPLs.
  4. You can create a separate PROC to be used when LMP keys need to be refreshed, for example CAS9LMP:
     //KEYS DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your-parmfile(KEYS)

      So whenever you need to refresh LMP keys, update the KEYS member and issue the command S CAS9LMP.
