Issue : After I add the VSIM Licenses [ 8.2.1RC1 licenses 7-Mode ] to DataOntap. I run the command “snaplock clock initialize”, but the error said requires a snaplock or snaplock enterprise license.

Secure clock initialization requires a snaplock or snaplock enterprise license.

As per my knowledge SnapLock is not supported in any Data ONTAP 8.0.x release. So even if you have license you cant use the feature .
