How to export license files?

We bought a used FAS2040 and would like to backup the license keys before reconfiguring.  I know that Netapps have FTP functionality, but I have no idea how to export these files.

 

Is there a way to do that?

Re: How to export license files?

hello, they need a NetApp Support access and serial number, you can obtain the licenses of NetApp support. Alternatively, you can read the licenses of the autosupport. mail (c & p).

Use "license" command to list installed license keys.

Right, but that doesn't back up the key anywhere.  I want to back up the keys to an external drive, in case I ever need to reinstall them.

So there's no way to actually copy them off of the filer through FTP?  I don't have a support contract and want to make a backup of them.

use a putty session, then call the command to license, then copy and paste and ready is the backup. with license add after a reinstallation again -> recovery license

Everything marked as EBABLED does not require license key. See https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=3013159 for details.
