Each Precisely product for System i is shipped with default values for notifying you when license keys are about to expire on the local system. These warnings can be enabled for a product or feature. When enabled, a product or feature will begin issuing warnings the specified number of days before its license key expiration. When the product version supports maintenance warnings and the license checks the maintenance expiration date, warnings are also sent when license maintenance is about to expire. Dates for license key expiration and maintenance expiration are evaluated independently.

Multiple forms of warnings can occur. License expiration messages are sent to the specified message queues. If the product has a portal application that supports licensing in the Assure Unified Interface, a warning status will also be displayed for the license key in the License Summary window in the Assure UI portal. If the portal application provides subscription events for license key and maintenance expiration, the events are triggered and users who have subscribed to those events will be notified.

To display or change the current warning settings for license expiration messages on the local system, do the following:

  1. Type LAKEVIEW/WRKLICKEY and press Enter to access the Work with License Keys display.

  2. Locate the correct license key, system, and Serial-LPAR, type 12 (Change messaging) next to it and press Enter.

  3. Additional fields appear. The values displayed are the current settings for the product or feature license.

  4. To change when license warnings begin for all instances that use the specified license key, do the following:

    1. Warnings are initially enabled. To disable warning messages in both user interfaces and warning statuses and subscription events in the Assure Unified Interface, specify *NO for the Enable messages prompt.

    2. To change when warnings begin, specify the number of days before expiration to begin sending warning messages in the Days before expiration prompt.

  5. To change the message queues to which warnings will be sent, do the following:

    1. The primary message queue is initially set to QSYSOPR. You can specify a different value for the Primary message queue prompt, or prevent messages from being sent to this queue by specifying *NONE.

      Note: Specifying *NONE for either message queue only affects messages being sent to message queues. Status and subscriptions in the Assure Unified Interface are not affected.
    2. To have messages sent to a secondary message queue, specify a value for the Secondary message queue prompt.
  6. Press Enter.
