SHOW, LICENSE, Qualifiers
*Conan The Librarian
1 - /BEFORE
Use with /TERMINATION_DATE and /RELEASE_DATE qualifiers. Selects only those licenses whose times are before the time specified with the other qualifiers. The /BEFORE qualifier cannot be used with the /SINCE qualifier.
2 - /BRIEF
/BRIEF (default) Displays a summary of information about the specified active product licenses. Use the /FULL qualifier to obtain a complete product license listing.
3 - /CHARGE_TABLE
Synonym for the /UNIT_REQUIREMENTS qualifier.
4 - /CLUSTER
Use with the /UNIT_REQUIREMENTS qualifier to display the license unit requirements for every node in an OpenVMS Cluster.
5 - /EXACT
Use with the /PAGE=SAVE and /SEARCH qualifiers to specify a search string that must match the search string exactly and must be enclosed with quotation marks (" "). If you specify the /EXACT qualifier without the /SEARCH qualifier, exact search mode is enabled when you set the search string with the Find (E1) key.
6 - /FULL
Displays a summary of information about the specified active product licenses, including Product Authorization Key (PAK) options and the reserve list (if any). On I64 systems, lists the products included in the operating environment currently active on the system.
7 - /HIERARCHY
/HIERARCHY (I64 only) Displays the hierarchy of licenses for operating environments active on the current node.
8 - /HIGHLIGHT
/HIGHLIGHT[=keyword] Use with the /PAGE=SAVE and /SEARCH qualifiers to specify the type of highlighting you want when a search string is found. When a string is found, the entire line is highlighted. You can use the following keywords: BOLD, BLINK, REVERSE, and UNDERLINE. BOLD is the default highlighting.
9 - /OE
/OE[=OE name] (I64 only) When OE name is specified, displays the settings for the named operating environment currently active on the node. Valid OE names are FOE, EOE, and MCOE. When no OE name is specified, displays the operating environment currently active on the node.
10 - /OUTPUT
/OUTPUT[=filespec] /NOOUTPUT Controls where the output of the SHOW LICENSE command is sent. By default, the output of the SHOW LICENSE command is sent to the current SYS$OUTPUT device (usually your terminal). To send the output to a file, use the /OUTPUT qualifier followed by a file specification. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are not allowed in the file specification. If you enter a partial file specification (for example, specifying only a directory), SHOW is the default file name and .LIS is the default file type. If you enter the /NOOUTPUT qualifier, output is suppressed.
11 - /PAGE
/PAGE[=keyword] /NOPAGE (default) Controls the display of license information on the screen. You can use the following keywords with the /PAGE qualifier: CLEAR_SCREEN Clears the screen before each page is displayed. SCROLL Displays information one line at a time. SAVE[=n] Enables screen navigation of information, where n is the number of pages to store. The /PAGE=SAVE qualifier allows you to navigate through screens of information. The /PAGE=SAVE qualifier stores up to 5 screens of up to 255 columns of information. When you use the /PAGE=SAVE qualifier, you can use the following keys to navigate through the information: Key Sequence Description Up arrow key, Scroll up one line. Ctrl/B Down arrow key Scroll down one line. Left arrow key Scroll left one column. Right arrow key Scroll right one column. Find (E1) Specify a string to find when the information is displayed. Insert Here (E2) Scroll right one half screen. Remove (E3) Scroll left one half screen. Select (E4) Toggle 80/132 column mode. Prev Screen (E5) Get the previous page of information. Next Screen (E6), Get the next page of information. Return, Enter, Space F10, Ctrl/Z Exit. (Some utilities define these differently.) Help (F15) Display utility help text. Do (F16) Toggle the display to oldest/newest page. Ctrl/W Refresh the display. The /PAGE qualifier is not compatible with the /OUTPUT qualifier.
12 - /PRODUCER
/PRODUCER=producer-name Displays software product licenses active on the current node and supplied by the specified producer. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are allowed for the producer-name parameter. You cannot use the /PRODUCER qualifier with the /UNIT_REQUIREMENTS qualifier. NOTE On OpenVMS VAX and Alpha systems, the producer is shown as DEC. On OpenVMS I64 systems, the producer displays as HP.
13 - /RELEASE_DATE
/RELEASE_DATE=[date_time] Allows listing licenses using release dates as selection criteria.
14 - /SEARCH
/SEARCH="string" Use with the /PAGE=SAVE qualifier to specify a string that you want to find in the information being displayed. Quotation marks are required for the /SEARCH qualifier, if you include spaces in the text string. You can also dynamically change the search string by pressing the Find key (E1) while the information is being displayed. Quotation marks are not required for a dynamic search.
15 - /SINCE
/SINCE (default) Use with the /TERMINATION_DATE and /RELEASE_DATE qualifiers. Selects only those licenses whose times are on or after the time specified with the other qualifiers. The /SINCE qualifier cannot be used with the /BEFORE qualifier.
16 - /TERMINATION_DATE
/TERMINATION_DATE=date_time Allows listing licenses using termination dates as selection criteria.
17 - /UNIT_REQUIREMENTS
On Alpha and VAX systems, displays information in the License Unit Requirement Table (LURT). On Integrity server systems, displays information about the type of system, the number of active cores, and the number of sockets. The /UNIT_REQUIREMENTS qualifier is incompatible with the product-name parameter and with the /BRIEF and /PRODUCER qualifiers.
18 - /USAGE
Tells you how many license units are loaded, how many are currently allocated, and how many are currently available, as well as the license type for each product on the system. Use with the /FULL qualifier to display complete information-including the PID, process name, node, or user name-for each instance of use of the product. You need group privilege to see the list of users in your group who have allocated license units; you need world privilege to see the list of users in all groups. In an OpenVMS Cluster, if you own multiple license types for a single product, you are limited to viewing the usage information for the license type loaded on the node from which you are executing the SHOW LICENSE/USAGE command. To find out the usage of the other license type loaded on another node, issue the command on that node. You can also use the System Management (SYSMAN) utility to do this. In an OpenVMS Cluster, usage information is limited to the local license type. For example, VAX and Alpha availability licenses are considered by LMF to be different license types. If you are running both VAX and Alpha systems in a cluster, usage information for availability licenses is limited to the local system type. For example, if you have DEC C installed on all nodes in your OpenVMS Cluster, you can display DEC C license allocation on all the VAX nodes in the cluster from any VAX node with DEC C installed, but you cannot display the DEC C license allocation on the Alpha nodes. Usage information is not available for unlimited licenses (a license with 0 units). Clusterwide usage information is not available for personal use or NO_SHARE licenses. See the HP OpenVMS License Management Utility Manual for more information on license types.
19 - /WARNING_INTERVAL
/WARNING_INTERVAL=n NOWARNING_INTERVAL Displays a warning stating the number of licenses that will terminate in n days. The default is 30 days.
20 - /WRAP
/WRAP /NOWRAP (default) Use with the /PAGE=SAVE qualifier to limit the number of columns to the width of the screen and to wrap lines that extend beyond the width of the screen to the next line. The /NOWRAP qualifier extends lines beyond the width of the screen and can be seen when you use the scrolling (left and right) features provided by the /PAGE=SAVE qualifier.
