Acquire a capacity pool license

Contributors dmp-netapp netapp-pcarriga

You must acquire a license file for each capacity pool used by the ONTAP Select nodes. The license file defines the storage capacity and expiration for the pool. It is locked to the License Manager through a combination of the unique license serial number assigned by NetApp and the License Lock ID associated with the Deploy instance.

Before you begin

You must have the nine-digit license serial number assigned to the capacity pool by NetApp. Before attempting to acquire a license file, you should wait at least twenty four hours after the shipped date of your purchase order.
