Article ID: KB32425 KB Last Updated: 04 Jan 2021Version: 2.0
Summary:

This article explains how to interpret a WANDL IP/MPLSView license.

Solution:

There are various fields within a IP/MPLSView license that are important to understanding the following:

  • The validity of the license

  • The operating system where the license is applied to

  • Other functionalities pertaining to the network where the license is installed
     

A license file should always be named npatpw and should be placed under /u/wandl/db/sys. The file should be owned by the same user which is configured while installing wandl and should have 644 privilege. Please refer to the example below. In the following case, the file is owned by 'wandl' user.

[wandl@jtac-wandl ~]# ls -l /u/wandl/db/sys/
total 12
-rw-r--r-- 1 wandl staff  150 Sep 26 09:00 npatpw
[wandl@jtac-wandl ~]#
 

The two most important fields of wandl/ipmplsview license are 'expire_date' and 'maintenance'.

  • Expire date indicates the date when the license expires, which means wandl/ipmplsview will cease to function properly. Most permanent licenses have an expire date of 0 which means IP/MPLSview will always be running. Most temporary licenses have a set expire date. It should be updated to a permanent license before it expires.

  • Maintenance indicates the date where all support agreements are finished. IP/MPLSview will continue to keep running but any issues coming post maintenance date will NOT be supported by Juniper. Also note that if IP/MPLSview is upgraded when maintenance is expired; java GUI will not be accessible post upgrade. It is important to keep maintenance up to date in order to receive support OR be able to upgrade.
     

Other fields with wandl license include 'hostid', 'card', 'MAC', 'node_limit'

  • 'hostid' is applicable to Solaris servers and indicates license can only be applied to the corresponding Solaris server indicated by hostid of the server.

  • 'card' and 'MAC' are applicable to Linux servers and indicates license can only be applied to the corresponding Linux server indicated by the MAC of the server as well as the management interface of the Linux server.

  • 'node_limit' indicates maximum number of nodes that can be used with IP/MPLSview. You may see multiple entries of node_limit, but that depends on the type of nodes that will be managed by IP/MPLSview (i.e MPLS)

Fields like 'usercount', 'viewercount', 'webviewer' are generic to wandl, indicating the number of users that can access the respective user interfaces.

Some license may be long (i.e number of lines) and some licenses may have less number of lines. It depends on what functionalities customer has purchased for wandl/ipmplaview to manage in their network.
