Re: Installing MAPICs on your shopfloor AS/400



fixed

Thanks Jeff. 

I had a brief conversation with my Infor rep recently who said that with 
concurrent licensing it did not matter how many separate AS/400s you were 
running MAPICS on. He would just split up the users among the different 
machines. Of course, he could have been mistaken. 

Also, currently I am running a test environment of MAPICS on an LPAR that 
it separate from the LPAR for the production environment. It shares the 
licensing just as your setup does. But I want my shop floor systems to 
have separate servers so that production is not interrupted if the AS/400 
on which the main MAPICS environment resides goes down.

Re: [MAPICS-L] Installing MAPICs on your shopfloor AS/400






Hi. Hopefully I am answering your question. My understanding of Mapics 
licensing is runs under the system hardware serial #. So if you are 
running 
it on an AS/400 that is LPARed no problem. This is the scenario I am 
running 
and I have 3 LPAR's running Mapics without incuring any additional 
Licensing 
problems. This is because all of the LPAR's share the same hardware serial 

#. But if you want to run Mapics on 2 different machines contain 2 
different 
system hardware serial #'s then you need to purchase an additional 
licenses 
to use Mapics and purchase Mapics again. 

I dont think the type of license you own matters. I think that just 
matters 
when the users are acutally signed into Mapics.

I know there is some license breaks if you are running Mapics on a high 
availbility server. But I dont know that much about that. 

Sorry but I do not have any experience with Enterprise Integrator. Thanks

Has anyone installed MAPICS on an AS/400  separate from their main 
AS/400(which is running MAPICS) in order to use Enterprise 
Integrator to create a custom shopfloor system that would interface 
with their main installation of MAPICS? Did MAPICS envision us using 
Enterprise Integrator for all of our application development 
including shopfloor systems on remote AS/400s? Is this a crazy idea? 
My understanding is that since I am using concurrent users I could 
have MAPICS installed on as many AS/400s as I want. It would be nice 
if we just had one tool for all our development needs.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
