Licensing Issue

P: n/a
Hi All
As I have already posted in this forum, my db2diag.log always shows this
message.
"SQL8017W The number of processors on this machine exceeds the defined
entitlement of "1" for the product "DB2 Enterprise Server Edition". The
number of processors on this machine is "2". You should purchase
additional
processor based entitlements from your IBM representative or authorized
dealer
and update your license using the License Center or the db2licm command
line
utility. For more information on updating processor based licenses, refer
to
the Quick Beginnings manual for your platform. For more information on
the
db2licm utility, refer to the DB2 Command Reference."

Please tell me how to find out the no. of processors for which the product
is licensed.
Also I tried the following command
db2licm -n "Product Password" "No. of processors"

and it successfully updated the information which I see in db2licm -l .

before issuing the command it showed me folowing entries

Number of processors = "2"
Number of licensed processors = "1"

After the command it shows me this information
Number of processors = "2"
Number of licensed processors = "2"

My question is ,if the product is not licensed for 2 processors on my
machine it should not update it and if it is already licensed for 2
processors why it was showing there "1" as "Number of licensed
processors".
Please advise

Have you restarted DB2 after you corrected the settings for the number of
licensed processors?
