You must know your controller serial number before you can retrieve your SnapCenter controller-based license. You can retrieve the controller serial number using the ONTAP command line.

You must be a cluster administrator on the FAS or AFF system.

Steps

  1. Log in to the controller using the ONTAP command line.

  2. Enter the system show -instance command, and then review the output to locate the controller serial number.
