Updating the product license
Usually, the product license is granted for a full year, and is renewed until the end of the contract or a mainframe upgrade. Upgrading to a newer Model9 release does not require a new license. Changing the CPU serial number or model of the mainframe server does require a new license.
The license should be updated in the license file of each active z/OS agent and the management server, see the installation guide for more details.
The license is enforced by every action that is performed under the z/OS agent, the z/OS CLI and the management server web UI. When the license expires, only data retrieval actions are allowed. The following table lists the return code and messages for every action in accordance with the license status:
