Greetings,

We are licensed to use V8 DB2 Workgroup Server both 'limited' and
unlimited editions on Windows platform.

I have no trouble executing 'db2licm -n password 4' to update number
of licensed processors on W2K running UNLIMITED edition.

However, I do have problem issuing the same command on W2K running DB2
Workgroup Server edition (not UNLIMITED) to update from 2 to 4
processors. It returned:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
DBI1420N This product does not support this type of license policy.
Explanation:

The license policy specified does not apply to this product or
is not supported.

User Response:

Please enter a valid license policy.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Could someone please confirm the command does NOT apply to Workgroup
(limited) edition? Which file is license policy?

Also, if I have to switch to unlimited edition (from Workgroup Server
edition), do I have to un-install the Workgroup Server edition and
install the UNLIMITED edition? Or issue 'db2licm -a
license-policy-file' with the license policy obtained from UNLIMITED
edition?

Thanks!

Workgroup Server Edition is licensed by number of users (either
registered or concurrent), not CPUs. So, you need to update the
number of users according to what you've purchased.
Also, if I have to switch to unlimited edition (from Workgroup Server

You can just add the new license file.
