Checking RPE license consumption
Checking how many RPE licenses are consumed and by whom can be done on Windows with this script:
set RKL_HOME=D:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalRLKS\common "%RKL_HOME%\lmutil" lmstat -c 19353@LICENSE_SERVER -f rpe_publish
Adjust the values of RKL_HOME, LICENSE_PORT and LICENSE_SERVER to match your installation.
Disabling the License Finder dialog
When RPE does not find a license because the license server is unaccesible the license finder dialog is displayed to help you correct the error. This is a nice tool in general but there are scenarios where it is hindering, such as for unattended document generations where having the process fail can be preferable to having it hanging waiting for some user feedback that will not come.
Disabling the license finder dialog can be done by defining the FLEXLM_BATCH environment variable. Do note that defining this variable globally ( as a system variable) will affect all products using FLEXLM for licensing so try to define this in a way to affect only RPE. If you are using RPE in unattended mode through batch scripts I suggest defining the variable there.
