Issue:
We are seeing this message:-
CAS9180E - CPU xxxxxx Requires a LMP key to run Prod (GT)
Product GT is the CA-IDMS SQL Option which we don't use.
Environment:
CA-IDMS r18.5.
Cause:
CA-IDMS r18.5 has a feature called Web-Connect which means that a client can use up to two simultaneous SQL or Server sessions of CA-IDMS on the same LPAR even without having a valid licence for the SQL Option.
A CONNECT statement at the start of the input of a CA-IDMS utility execution will initiate an SQL session, even if none of the remainder of the input has anything to do with SQL.
For example, clients often think they need a CONNECT TO SYSTEM; as the first statement in a utility such as ARCHIVE LOG; or PRINT SPACE;.
The CONNECT statement is unnecessary but will cause no problem, unless more than two of them run concurrently, in which case the CAS9180E message will be issued.
Resolution:
Remove any superfluous CONNECT statements from the input of non-SQL related CA-IDMS batch utilities.
