    Apply Release 6.x Single-Tier License Files on Unix

    1. For best results, quit all ODBC client applications and administrative tools to start this process, and do not relaunch any of them until instructed to test your connection.

    2. Use the bash or sh command to open a bash or Bourne shell. (Other shells may be used, but vary widely, so any or all of the following steps may need adjustment.)

    3. Retrieve your new OpenLink license file from an email or ODS briefcase.

    4. Use binary ftp to transfer the new license to the Unix box, if required.

    5. Replace any existing license file with the new, or place the new license in your desired location. We generally recommend this location be the bin sub-directory of the OpenLink installation, or /etc/oplmgr/.

    6. cd into the root of your OpenLink installation.

    7. Check the openlink.sh and openlink.csh scripts, for their setting of the OPL_LICENSE_DIR environment variable. If necessary, adjust this to include the directory holding the new license file.
    8. Execute this command:

      . ./openlink.sh

    9. cd into the bin sub-directory of the OpenLink installation.

    10. Execute these commands:

      ./oplmgr +stop ./oplmgr +start

    11. Test your connection with iodbctest, the HTTP-based OpenLink ODBC Administrator, or any other ODBC client application.

      1. If license errors come up, reboot, and test again.

      2. If errors persist, please log a Support Case.
