This section describes how to update the license file to enable Adaptive Server features.

To add features for which you have licenses:

  1. Enable the new feature. See “Starting Adaptive Server with optional features”.

  2. Shut down Adaptive Server. See Chapter 7, “Starting and Stopping Servers.”

  3. Verify that the license manager software is running. See “SySAM administration”.

  4. Log on to the machine where the license manager is installed (license host).

  8. From a command-line prompt, enter:

    %SYBASE%\SYSAM-1_0\bin\lmutil lmreread

    If you encounter problems with new licenses, check the lmgrd.log file in the %SYBASE%\%SYBASE_SYSAM%\bin\ directory to see that they were properly appended to the license file.
