I've bought from different sellers on a popular auction site a FAS3050, a DS14MK2 and five 146 Gb disks. I have configured the disks for ownership by the FAS. I intend to configure fibre channel and connect to my two VMWare servers. I notice that I have no licenses installed.
Will I be able to use ths setup or will I need to get licenses. Do I just have pile of tin at the moment?
Thanks, The seller of the FAS3050 is an IT recycler. Without starting the FCP does this mean I won't be able to present fibre channel LUN's to my ESXi hosts? I assume the FAS had licenses but when I added the disk shelf and init the disks this has destroyed my licenses?
