DB2 licensing queries


I have two sap system (different products)...

SAP PI with db2 v5 standalone (central instance & dbserver on same host) & SAP ECC with db2v10 distributed installation (dbserver on z/os & client on aix)

I am installing db2 license for my PI ... and I can see following files supplied by SAP (db2so.lic, db2ese_c.lic,db2dpf.lic,db2poese.lic,sam22.lic,sam23.lic,sam31.lic,sam32.lic).

1) I have added db2so db2ese_c db2poese and db2dpf files. Can someone please suggest what are the sam* files for ?

2) this is my db2licm -l output... Is there anything I need to do about the DB2 connect server for PI system or ECC system?

Product name: "DB2 Enterprise Server Edition" License type: "CPU Option" Expiry date: "Permanent" Product identifier: "db2ese" Version information: "9.5" Enforcement policy: "Soft Stop"


DB2 Database Partitioning: "Licensed"

DB2 Performance Optimization ESE: "Licensed"

DB2 Storage Optimization: "Licensed" DB2 Advanced Access Control: "Not licensed" DB2 Geodetic Data Management: "Not licensed"

IBM Homogeneous Replication ESE: "Not licensed"

Product name: "DB2 Connect Server" License type: "Trial" Expiry date: "06/04/2012" Product identifier: "db2consv" Version information: "9.5"

3) I understand that db2ese_c.lic file allows you to setup the cpu license. How do I find as to how many CPU is my db2 licensed for.
