As more and more of you may be discovering since the Teamcenter 10.1 release a few weeks ago, Siemens PLM has changed many licensed feature names in Teamcenter 10.1 which do not work with older versions of Teamcenter. Also, the new Tc10.1 license file does not yet contain entries for some licensed features that exist in your pre-Tc10 license file.
This is type of thing causes us customers a lot of frustration since we need to install newer versions of license files to support development and upgrade testing of the newer versions while at the same time having to continue supporting the current production environment. This leaves customers in a bind since they (or at least I) do not plan to buy duplicate licenses of everything just for testing purposes.
There is a workaround to this problem that I have used over the years: combine the old and new license files into one file that serves both Teamcenter versions at the same time. I have successfully done this to support Tc10.1 development while still maintaining our Teamcenter 8.3 production environment.
To do this,
1) Copy the problematic or missing feature entries from your pre-Tc10 license file to your new Tc10 license file.
2) Install the latest version of the Flexlm licensing software.
3) Use the newly merged license file.
4) Reread license file using ‘lmreread’, or restart your license service.
I did this and am now to able to plan our next upgrade again while at the same time continuing to support our current Teamcenter environment.
