I think that is a remnant of old. At one time there was a software edition
you could buy that was for application servers that did not need DB/2,
Domino was a great example at that time.

It's likely that Rob's systems have been upgraded and kept that software
edition hanging on in the records. I don't think it's sold any longer.

Rob,

Never knew there was IBM I license subset.
Or is this new with V7R2?
We have an 8205 8 core, but only 3 licensed for i5/OS.
The other 5 are active, but idle.
These licenses go way back via MES upgrades, etc, The original was a P30,
but anything new is a P20.

On our 8286-42A we are licensed for 9 processors of IBM i. Two of them are
supposed to be the non DB2 part of IBM i and seven are DB2 IBM i.

I understand the "Application Server entitlement" is targeted for lpars
like:
- Dedicated hosts
- Straight Domino or WAS lpars
Of these, we have a few.

I am under the belief that a very limited amount of DB2 is permitted.

Trying to think what the technical aspects of that are.
- How do I flag a lpar with this "Application Server entitlement"? Is there
a process to convert an existing lpar from DB2 to "Application Server
entitlement"?
- Is it bad form to load 5770-ST1 also so that you can use STRSQL for
occasional stuff like qsys2.user_info, qsys2.group_ptf_currency, querying a
small table of backup history, etc?

Something about a 5770-SSV comes to mind but I can't get any hits searching
for that.
