Issue 31797  —   DLM Grace period does not work consistent

Status:   Planned for resolution in 10.4.01

Solution available in patch(es):


 DLM supports a 3 days grace period for concurrent license features.

 When there is no connection between Uniface and the DLM license manager,
 Uniface will try to use the grace (with information from the cache file).
 When the end-user had a connection with the license manager, within the last 72
 hours, it can use the features listed in the cache file.

 However, this does not work anymore.

 +DLM Version  :
 +Operating System : OS independent

 Reproduction scenario:
 1. setup a DLM license server with concurrent features and grace enabled
 2. start Uniface application (idf.exe/uniface.exe) and let it checkout features
 3. close Uniface application
 4. stop / disconnect the license server from network
 5. start Uniface application

 Actual Result:
 Uniface application will fail to start due to license not available

 Expected Result:
 Uniface application should start normal for a grace period of 72 hours (3 days).


 There is no known workaround for this problem.
