Question

What should a valid Aleph license look like? What lines should it contain?

Answer

An Aleph license should have the following lines (e.g.):

JJYUUK996D
D8JM5VE20K
KSLO8787ND
8T4VN41UCO
LOP06TN934
ALEPH-VERSION 22
MAX-WEB-USERS 999
MAX-GUI-USERS 999
MAX-Z39-USERS 999
MAX-NO-LIBS 999
MAX-DOC-NUMBER 9999999
MAX-WWW-X-USERS 999
ISSUE-DATE YYYYMM
EXPIRATION-DATE YYYYMM
MAX-SLNP-SERVERS 999
MAX-SC-SERVERS 999
MAX-OCLC-SERVERS 999
MAX-NCIP-SERVERS 999
IP-ADDRESS 111.222.333.444
IP-ADDRESS 111.222.333.555
GUI-ALL Y


Note: The first five lines are unique checksums per license.

There can be up to nine IP addresses in an Aleph license.

For a full description of each variable within the license, refer to Additional Info section below.


The license.www_x looks as follows (e.g.):
JJYUUK996D
D8JM5VE20K
KSLO8787ND
8T4VN41UCO
LOP06TN934
ALEPH-VERSION 22
ISSUE-DATE YYYYMM
EXPIRATION-DATE YYYYMM
IP-ADDRESS 111.222.333.444
IP-ADDRESS 111.222.333.555
ALL-SERVICES Y

Again, five checksum lines appear at the top of the x-license.
These checksums are different from the checksums in the Aleph license, and are unique to each license.
In an x-license, up to 20 IP addresses can be included.
For a full description of each variable within the license, refer to Additional Info section below.

NOTE - customers who have upgraded from v19 Aleph or lower:
In v19 and lower there was an additional "license.www_x.SERVICES".
In v20 and higher the "ALL_SERVICES" variable in the x-license covers all license.www_x functions, including ILL.
Only license and license_www.x are relevant.
