So, some of you may recall my adventures of attempting to apply a permanent
license. My current shop purchased RDi before I got here last March, but
no one ever used it before me. Ergo, there was no impetus to install a
license server. Ergo, poor Mike Hockings has been sending me trial
extensions for the past year to keep me working on RDi.

Once we added a new local IT manager with IBM midrange experience, as well
as another developer (a Power i newbie who looks at SEU and asks "Why?")
familiar with provisioning and setting up servers, it finally appeared that
we were on our way to being able to apply permanent licenses.

So, today, our sysadmin found out that we have the wrong type of license to
use a license server, and that the activation kit that we have has to be
applied on each workstation. (Two of us have done so, and I now have a
permanent license.) Our sysadmin says we're supposed to have the type of
license (floating?) that requires a license server, but I'd be surprised if
IBM will make any adjustments for that now. We'll see.

Sorry Mike!
