Question:

How can I tell if CA Datacom/AD or CA Datacom/DB product is licensed? I believe we only have CA Datacom/AD.
How can I confirm that we only have a license for CA Datacom/AD and not for CA Datacom/DB?

Environment:
z/OS
Answer:
Look at the LMPKEYs employed in the Lpar to see what licensed products are actually available for use. 

All of your site's LMP keys can be found in CA Licensing page on Support.ca.com.

The Click for more details link under "LMP License Keys" has your site's LMP keys.

Notice LMP product code for CA Datacom/DB is "Prod(BD)" while the LMP product code for CA Datacom/AD is Prod(AX)"

Without a CA Datacom/DB LMP key license, you would not be able to execute CA Datacom/DB.
 
Additional Information:
You can also see the list of CA products' LMP Codes and product names via the Click for more details link under "LMP Product Code LIsting" on that same CA Licensing page.
