Viewing SnapManager Suite storage controller license installation status using the SnapCenter GUI

You can use the SnapCenter GUI to view whether a SnapManager Suite license is installed on FAS or AFF primary storage systems, and to identify which storage systems might require SnapManager Suite licenses. SnapManager Suite licenses apply only to FAS and AFF SVMs or clusters on primary storage systems.

Steps

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Storage Systems.
  2. On the Storage Systems page, from the Type drop-down, select whether to view all the SVMs or clusters that were added:
    • To view all of the SVMs that were added, select ONTAP SVMs.
    • To view all of the clusters that were added, select ONTAP Clusters.

      When you click the cluster name, all of the SVMs that are part of the cluster are displayed in the Storage Virtual Machines section.

  3. In the Storage Connections list, locate the Controller License column.
    The Controller License column displays the following statuses:

    Indicates that a SnapManager Suite license is installed on a FAS or AFF primary storage system.

    Indicates that a SnapManager Suite license is not installed on a FAS or AFF primary storage system.

    Not applicable

    Indicates that a SnapManager Suite license is not applicable for this controller. This message is displayed for the following platforms:

    • Cloud Volumes ONTAP
    • ONTAP Select
    • Secondary storage
    • MetroCluster
