We just went through the whole key issue. We had a user based license but we dropped maintenance a couple years ago. We upgraded our AS400 but then could not get a key - kept getting temp keys. Got a lawyer involved - bottom line - we had to reinstate a maint contract. SSA will not issue a key unless you have maint no matter what kind of license you have - tier or user based. ----- Original Message ----- From: <DAsmussen@xxxxxxx> To: <bpcs-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Tuesday, April 22, 2003 12:25 AM Subject: Re: AS/SET Key > Dan, > > Well, it has been my experience that SSA/GT has been much better at issuing > keys than was the old SSA.
