Registration Tips for Starteam 5.1 and Higher.
Information in this Brief applies to:
When receiving your Starteam Server License keys, whether they are brand new keys or additional keys for a current Starteam Server installation, you will be required to apply the new keys into the Starteam Server to make them active. This document addresses some common issues encountered by our users when applying news License keys.
When you receive the new Serial Numbers and Activation Keys from "email@example.com", Borland Support or your Account Manager you are required to input the keys into the Starteam Server for activation.
Windows and Solaris Platform Starteam Servers: You can either add the keys through the GUI or the StarteamServer.exe command line.
In the situation where you are adding a replacement key that will add new fixed user licenses or have upgraded to a higher version of Starteam Server, for example from "Enterprise" to "Enterprise Advantage", when you cut and paste your new Serial Number and Activation Key into the dialogue, the old key will be replaced. A restart of Starteam Server is necessary for these licenses to be activated.
In the situation that you have added additional licenses via the Concurrent or Floating license scheme, you only have to add the new Serial Number and Activation Key to the list. The Concurrent license must be for same version and level of the Starteam Server as the fixed licenses are for. You cannot add Enterprise Concurrent licenses to a Starteam Server that is registered to run as an Enterprise Advantage server. Standard Concurrent licensing is currently not available. A restart of Starteam Server is necessary for these licenses to be activated.
Using the Starbaseserver.exe command line utility adding a new key must be done following the same basic premise. The new license will replace the old one of the same kind, concurrent keys will append the list of licenses for the server.
From the Starteam Server Administrators Guide, Appendix D:
After adding new Fixed licenses to Starteam Server you must open the Starteam Servers User Manager, available through either the Client"s "Tools", "Server Administration" menu, and add "Anchors" to the users that have been named as the new holders of the new licenses to allow those users to sign into Starteam.
