Tools Release 8.4x
Application Release Financials/SCM
Oracle Enterprise Edition v10.2.0.3
Applicable to Compiler version Server Express 1.x, 2.x, 4.x , 5.x ( which are past and currently certified versions )

The site has moved the production environment's application and web server domain from Solaris 8 server to Solaris 10 server. When installing and testing the environment, one of the steps is to compile and link cobol programs. When attempting to compile cobol programs using pscbl.mak script, none of the cobols will compile and the following error is received:  " Micro Focus LMF - 010: Unable to contact license manager. This product has been unable to contact the License Manager".  See below for full error message.

Other process types like SQR and AE are not affected.

pscbl.mak : Compiling CEPCRLUP.cbl
Micro Focus LMF - 010: Unable to contact license manager. This product has been unable to contact the License Manager. Execution of this product has been terminated.This product cannot execute without the License Manager. Contact your license administrator or refer to the 'Information Messages' chapter of the License Management Facility Administrator's Guide.

The the issue can be reproduced by running the pscbl.mak compile script from $PS_HOME/setup directory

PeopleSoft Financials applications deliver core functionality like journal generation, journal edit etc through cobol processes. None of the cobol processes can be run without compiling them. So this can have a major impact on application functionality for a site if the site only has one process scheduler and it is not able to run cobols.
