SAP Licensing Issue

One of customer purchased SAP licenses from one authorised vendor and getting implementation done from other authorised vendor.

The vendor from whom licenses were purchased didnot pay full payment to SAP but collected payment from the customer and utilized for his need. As a result, temporary license has expired and the customer is heldup. The implementation team cannot do any work at present.

What if the vendor is unable to pay to SAP. Is there any liability on SAP. Whom to contact in SAP?

What is alternative left to customer now.

    You can use the temporary license to extend the expiration date by 4

    If you are gone live you are registered your system with sap ,sap will conduct you further activities like sap license and end user license etc. or you can call sap


    At the operating system level, log on as <sapsid>adm (Unix and Windows) or <SID>OFR (iSeries) to the computer running the central SAP instance.

    2. Enter saplicense -temp (iSeries: saplicense '-temp').

    Enter the SAP System ID

    The following message indicates that you have successfully installed the temporary license:

    saplicense: Temporary license successfully installed

    In some cases, you might not be able to install a temporary license

    In some cases, you cannot install a temporary license.

    A temporary license can only be set up if a valid license was applied for recently (in the last month).
