Open Reporting Server Console and go to the Adapters. Under Options there's a drop down for Adapters License Count. That'll tell you how many you're allowed and how many you've already configured.

BabakNYC,

Thanks for info but I cannot see Options as a tab or anywhere else on the Reporting Server console - Adapters tab anywhere.

You must not be an administrator

Chuck,

Many thanks, I am surprised at that because WF was installed using my signin and that signin is shown under Access Control as a Server Administrator but fair enough.

For further info, we do not currently use any adapters on this particular WF installation, I want to check if they are available to us and am not sure how to.
I have checked a WF server which does use an Oracle adapter and the only difference I can see between the adapter tabs regarding the two installations is that the one that uses an Oracle adapter has a "Troubleshooting Tips" selection available whereas the adapter tab with no adapter used doesnt have that selection available.

Hi Otto,

If you are able to navigate to the Workspace tab on your WebFOCUS Server Console, and open the License option. You should see the WebFOCUS License code in the format of abc-def-ghij-kl

Let us know what the 2 numbers represented by "kl" above are and I can check the number of adapters that server is licensed for.

28 is not a valid value for the adapter code. That could be the problem.

Chuck,

One of our servers that uses license ending in 28 uses Oracle adapters. I guess if there isnt a simple way to see which adapters you can use I will contact our local IBI, just thought there might be a simple way. Thanks anyway.
