AIX Tip of the Week: Using "chlicense" to Remove Limit on User Logins

Audience: AIX Administrators

Date: October 14, 2000

The "smit chlicense" command can be used to change the maximum number of allowed AIX logins. The default AIX installation allows two concurrent logins. This is a historical artifact of AIX being sold by number of users. AIX is now sold with an unlimited user license, but it still may be necessary to remove the restriction.
