The TAALICENSE data area in TAATOOL will contain the information about
your license agreement.

When you call for support of the TAA Productivity Tools, you will be
asked for some of the information in the TAALICENSE data area or to
use the DSPTAALIC command.

The information in the data area includes:

-   Your IBM customer number.

-   Your name and address.

-   Serial number of the current system. If you have a demonstration
    license, the serial number may be *NONE.

-   Licensed software group.

    The software group (tier) is based on your system Model number and
    Feature Code.

-   Expiration date.

    If you have a normal license, the expiration date will be

    If a date is specified, you have a demonstration license. A
    demonstration license allows you to use most of the tools prior to
    the expiration date. You will not be able to copy any of the
    source from the TAA Archive or use CRTTAATOOL. When the expiration
    date is passed, you will not be able to use the tools.

-   Version/Release/Modification. This is the release the tools were
    installed on or the release that an update media was installed on.

    The license agreement allows you to run a release of the TAA
    Productivity Tools that is down level from the release of i5/OS.
    However, if you do this, you will not be able to receive support
    from the TAA Productivity Tools owner.

    To receive support of the TAA Productivity Tools, you must have a
    matching release between i5/OS and the TAA Productivity Tools.

-   The TAA Tools, Inc. name, support address, and phone number are
    included in the data area.

-   The last two lines of the data area contain your software key.
    This is a unique key for your serial number and license agreement.


It is possible to change the TAALICENSE data area with the CHGTAAKEY
command. Prior to executing this command, you must have received a
software key from the TAA Productivity Tools owner. The CHGTAAKEY
processing will prompt you for the information.

You should not use CHGTAAKEY unless you have received a valid software
key that is unique to your system from the TAA Tools Productivity
