Generating a NetApp license file

If you prefer not to enter your NetApp Support Site credentials and the SnapCenter license serial number in the SnapCenter GUI, or if you do not have internet access to the NetApp Support Site from SnapCenter, you can generate a NetApp license file, and then download and store the file in a location accessible from the SnapCenter host.

Before you begin


  1. Navigate to the NetApp License File Generator.
  2. Enter the required information.
  3. In the Product Line field, select SnapCenter Standard (capacity-based) from the pull-down menu.
  4. In the Product Serial Number field, enter the SnapCenter license serial number
  5. Read and accept the NetApp Data Privacy Policy, and then click Submit.
  6. Save the license file, and then record the file location.
