License problem with iscsi and fcp


Recently i updated my FAS2040 controller to version 8.1.3

Then i added licence code for isci and fcp.

Command "licence add" return me:

license add: "iscsi" is included and no license code is necessary.

license add: "fcp" is included and no license code is necessary.

Command "license" return me:

But i cant configure iscsi and fcp

netapp02> iscsi status

iscsi: service is not licensed

netapp02> fcp status

fcp: FCP is not licensed.

How i can fix problem with iscsi and fcp?

Re: License problem with iscsi and fcp


Did you consider removing the license and adding it again?



Re: License problem with iscsi and fcp

Hi, Arun!


Yes, of course i tryed to delete license, but i couldn't do it:

netapp02> license delete iscsi

license delete: "iscsi" is an included feature and cannot be deleted.

Re: License problem with iscsi and fcp

Strange, what license for iscsi and fcp was ENABLED by default after update to OnTap 8.1.3.

But if iscsi and fcp enabled, why i can't configure them?

Re: License problem with iscsi and fcp

Thank you for support!

I found answer for my question here:

Re: License problem with iscsi and fcp

As he says in the thread, for embeded licensed features you might have to use system manager to manage them. can you check whether you can start the iscsi through cli. "iscsi start". But however, you should be able to manage through system manager.
