SUMMARY: Solaris 2.3 Compiler licenses/license manager

From: Steve Dickson (

        Host configured with Flexlm license manager and one license for
        SPARCompiler C 2.0.1. When we installed SPARCompiler C 3.0.1,
        running lmstat on the combined license file indicates that we
        have a total of two C licenses available as expected. However,
        'cc' indicates that only one of the licenses seems to be available.

        I had assumed that 'cc' would run both 2.0.1 and 3.0.1, dependent
        upon which one was available/not in use. However, it turns out that
        the SPARCompiler C 3.0.1 installation creates a new cc-3.0.1 binary
        in /opt/SUNWspro/bin. Running the 'cc' binary ties up the 2.0.1
        license. The license manager DOES distinguish between 2.0.1 licenses
        and 3.0.1 licenses. To use the 3.0.1 license, you need to explicitly
        call the cc-3.0.1 binary.

        One reply suggested upgrading the 2.0.1 license to 3.0.1 which is
        apparently done free of charge under the maintenance agreement. This
        sounds like the best solution as it does away with the two separate
        versions, meaning that ALL users can use 'cc'.
