(PPM) Support tip: Autopass Licenses for PPM
PPM 9.30 implemented Autopass integration to replace PPM Center's original licensing mechanism with HP's Autopass licensing mechanism.
The new Autopass licensing solution simplifies the license generation and validation process, supports more product license types,
offers flexible license installation options, and simplifies product license management.
When installing an Autopass license key file, PPM validates the IP address of the PPM Server against that assigned in the license file.
For a clustered environment, IP address assigned in the license file shall match that of the primary node in the cluster,
otherwise you may receive a "0 license key(s) installed successfully" message.
Invalid licenses (expired license, or a license with IP address not matching that of the machine where you plan to install the license) will not be installed.
