User interface is required to find out license usage throughout all partitions on a server
It sometimes happens that the license usage (e.g. for Web Query Developer licenses) on a server with several partitions cannot be tracked correctly by the user. So licenses are used on a different partition but the customer doesn't know which partition. This is likely to occur with flash copies. As of today a non-disruptive Hypervisor Resource Dump has to be taken through HMC and sent in to IBM to analyze it to get a list of license usage throughout a server. It would be very beneficial, if the list of license usages throughout a server could be either retrieved by - a CL command RTVLICUSG with output to *, *RPTINT or *OUTFILE. Input parm would be product and feature. - an API - an HMC function
Systems with product usage spread over several partitions especially when flash copies are taking place.
