Rational Rose Enterprise Edition License Key
Rational Rose Enterprise Edition is a software engineering tool that supports object-oriented analysis and design, component-based development, and visual modeling. It is part of the IBM Rational Suite of products, which also includes Rational ClearQuest, Rational RequisitePro, Rational TestManager, and Rational Unified Process. Rational Rose Enterprise Edition helps developers create high-quality software applications by providing a graphical notation for expressing software designs, a code generator for translating designs into executable code, and a reverse engineering feature for recovering designs from existing code.
To use Rational Rose Enterprise Edition, you need a license key that matches the variant of the product that you have installed. A license key is a string of alphanumeric characters that activates the product and enables its features. You can obtain a license key from the IBM Rational License Key Center, a web application that allows you to generate and manage your license keys. You can access the License Key Center by logging in with your IBM ID and password, or by creating a new member ID and password if you don't have an IBM ID. You also need to provide your IBM site number or your old Rational account number, and your sales order number if you have it.
There are two types of license keys for Rational Rose Enterprise Edition: node-locked and floating. A node-locked license key is tied to a specific computer and can only be used on that computer. A floating license key is shared among multiple computers and can be used by any computer that connects to a license server. A license server is a computer that runs the IBM Rational License Key Administrator, a software program that manages the distribution of floating license keys. You can install the License Key Administrator on any computer that has network access to the computers that run Rational Rose Enterprise Edition.
A typical node-locked license key for Rational Rose Enterprise Edition has the following format:

To install a node-locked license key, you need to copy the license key file to the Rational Rose installation directory on your computer. To install a floating license key, you need to copy the license key file to the License Key Administrator installation directory on the license server computer. You also need to configure the License Key Administrator to specify the port number and the host name or IP address of the license server. You can use the License Key Administrator user interface or edit the rational_server_temp.dat file to do this. Then, you need to set the environment variable LM_LICENSE_FILE on each computer that runs Rational Rose Enterprise Edition to point to the port number and host name or IP address of the license server.
