  If the following information is insufficient to determine the cause,

  assistance in resolving this.
 EXCEEDED,  attempted usage exceeds active license limits
  Facility:     LICENSE, License Management Utility
  Explanation:  A license exists for the product, but one of the following
                problems occurred:
                o An attempt was made to activate a license on a processor
                  that requires more license units to provide availability
                  than the units currently registered for the product.
                  This message can be generated at system startup or when
                  a LICENSE LOAD command is entered.
                o An attempt was made to access a product with an activity
                  license. The product license specifies activity
                  authorization, and there were insufficient units on your
                  system to permit another concurrent user of the product.
  User Action:  For the first problem, see your system manager. For the second
                problem, access the product when other users have finished
                using it.
