I have been installing QNX for several years using the same two license
floppies - but making sure that 2 new licenses are bought for each new
site - when I noticed a problem. (My system uses a QNX two node network
isolated from everyone.)
When using the floppy labeled ‘Bootable Install License disk’ that came
with the Dec99 CD the new purchased licenses floppies labeled ‘QNX O.S.
ALL MODULES Version 4.25 New License’ are not understood by the install
process. When the Product Installer screen comes up and you press F9
then F4 to add Licenses with the new floppies the installer doesn’t
recognize the licensees. This is noticed by the red box next to the QNX
Operating System entry staying red.
Who can explain this and offer a new install program that will work now
and when I buy more QNX 4.2x licenses?
Item two - the license floppies I have may be corrupted - I’m assuming
they are a special breed since they won’t mount. How can I back these
up before sending them to my clients who will use them once and then
Thanks for the help.
If this is too sensitive or someone from QNX requires validation of the
licenses (I’ll not post that information in public) please e-mail me
with a name and I will call QNX asking for you.
