"User-License" in HP machine is wrong

The results of a uname -a command in my HP box render the following:

HP-UX msphnyc1 B.10.20 A 9000/889 1601445741 two-user license

This is one of four machines, with the other three reporting that I have a "16-user" license. I know that my company bought 16-user licenses for all four machines, but this one reports two-user.

Where does uname derive it's information? Is there a file I can change so that uname -a will report the correct license?

I am running HPUX 10.20 and rebooting is the last of my options.

Thanks in advance,

-Chris D.

The normal way to configure user licenses is to add a codeword through swinstall. I can only guess you installed a wrong codeword. I have no idea where the information is stored but I'd say it would not be easy to hack it Smilie
Why not just the correct codeword if your company did buy the licenses?

I have never played around with codewords. Can you kinda point me in the right direction? Not sure what they are, nor how to manipulate them.

What you need are:

* your original HP-UX installation CD's (core OS + application)

* your HP certificates with codewords.

Then fire up an interactive swinstall session. Browse through the menu to find an option add codeword. By putting a correct codeword or key you will 'unlock' hidden install packages on the mounted CD. With the right key you will get a package with description 'H-UX 16-user license'. Then you can select the package and install it.

Mind you, I don't know on which CD you should be looking for so you'll have to try them all Smilie
