    AIK: Failed to install the COBOL (server express 4.0/5.0) development license

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Description:
    I'm getting errors with v20 AIK step 2_7, installing COBOL as root.

    Wed Feb 23 14:48:26 EST 2011 Step cob_dev_lic
    Install COBOL dev. license as root user

    ==================================================
    Installing COBOL (server express 5.0) development license
    Error: Failed to install the COBOL (server express 4.0/5.0) development license
    step cob_dev_lic -> Failed
    Error: Failed to install Cobol Development license
    Wed Feb 23 14:48:28 EST 2011 Step ikit_2_7 [ Failed ]

    I'm not seeing any more detail than this in other log files.

    Resolution:
    Try these steps (from the internal the http://swami/wiki/COBOL_License_Installation page):

    rm -rf /opt/microfocus /var/mfaslmf /var/old_mfaslmf
    cd /exlibris/product/cobol5
    rm install_cob_rt_lic.tar exlibris64.int autoinstall64 install_cob_rt_lic64_readme
    ps -ef |grep mf # Then kill mflm_manager
    ipcs -m | grep root | awk '{print $2}' | xargs -t -i{} ipcrm -m {}

    Then ... re-run the AIK install of the license...
    <end paragraph>

    That worked -- but it's unclear as to just why this was necessary.
