DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition license question

Its been a while since I have done it, but, I think the following is still
true.

You can configure DB2 Connect for either hard or soft stop. If you configure
for hard stop, excess connections will be rejected. Soft stop will allow the
users to get thru, but, a message will be written to DB2DIAG.LOG. If you
check this file, you should see the messages.

HTH,

Subject: DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition license question



We have DB2 Connect 7.2 Enterprise Edition on a gateway server (NT), which
we use for access to DB2 6.1 on OS/390. We're licensed for 5 concurrent
users on our test gateway. We have a new application being developed in
java and they want to test and code for exceeding the maximum concurrent
users. We got 5 users connected, and then another person started up the
java application. The "license center" function of Control Center noted
that there were 6 concurrent users and 1 license infraction. However, the
java application ran normally. Is this the way it's supposed to work? I
can't imagine that IBM wants to let customers exceed their licensed quota.

Thanks,
