Installing the license for using array LUNs in a MetroCluster configuration

Download PDF of this page

You must install the V_StorageAttach license on each MetroCluster node that you want to use with array LUNs. You cannot use array LUNs in an aggregate until the license is installed.

  • The cluster must be installed.

  • You must have the license key for the V_StorageAttach license.

You must use a separate license key for each node on which you want to install the V_StorageAttach license.

Steps
  1. Use the system license add command to install the V_StorageAttach license.

    Repeat this step for each cluster node on which you want to install the license.

  2. Use the system license show command to verify that the V_StorageAttach license is installed on all required nodes in a cluster.

    The following sample output shows that the V_StorageAttach license is installed on the nodes of cluster_A:

    cluster_A::> system license show
