As I see it, your TSM Server version is 5.5.1, right? What type of license are you trying to register? Be aware that there were changes on how licenses are applied from version 5.3 and up.

try reinstalling the license pack from 5.5.0.0
if this does not help try to register the license with following command:

reg lic file=*lic (without the ".") and check that you have the currect tsm variable defind, otherwise you have to add the complete path where the .lic files are located; like: reg lic file=/usr/tivoli/tsm/server/bin/*lic

this was a problem on our AIX server when we made an update to 5.5.2.1

Thanx for the replies.
After lots of searching i found that the problem was
"Try-Buy Days Remaining: -1" setting and that a restart of the server didn't reset this setting.
My solution was.
1. replace the adsmlicn.dll
I copied this from another TSM server on the same version.
2. restart TSM
3. Voila! "Try-Buy Days Remaining: -1" setting gone.
4. run the reg lic file=*.lic

And the server is valid again.

Thanks pj1! Your solution worked well. The only difference was that I extracted the adsmlicn.dll from the install package (.exe) vs. copying it from another server. The rest of the steps worked fine.

hello,

I recently faced this issue on windows 2k , TSM 5.5.4.2 and for me copying files do not worked at all.So tried a other way.

1) Un-installed the TSM server
2) renamed the "server" directory under "c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\server" to "server_old"
3) re-installed the TSM server a new server directory will be automatically created with lic files

After this I'll be able to register the licences and new my server is working fine.
