SnapLock Enterprise License invalid for simulator on ESX

HCSchulte

Hi,

 

the simulator 9.0 is running on VMware ESX and accepted all licenses with the exception of SnapLock_Enterprise "QLXEEQKBFDUFZGABGAAAAAAAAAAA".

 

SnapLock::> system license add -license-code QLXEEQKBFDUFZGABGAAAAAAAAAAA

Error: "QLXEEQKBFDUFZGABGAAAAAAAAAAA" is an invalid value for field "-license-code <License Code V2>", ...

SnapLock::>

 

Any help is wellcome!

In 7-mode there were two keys required, and in ONTAP9 there is only one.  The one key activates both features.

 

From the Data Protection and Disaster Recovery Guide:

"A SnapLock license entitles you to use both SnapLock Compliance mode and SnapLock Enterprise mode. SnapLock licenses are issued on a per-node basis. You must install a license for each node that hosts a SnapLock aggregate."

 

The extra key is still useful if you were to build a 7mode simulator on 8.2.x using that serial number.

 

 

If this post resolved your issue, help others by selecting ACCEPT AS SOLUTION or adding a KUDO.

In NetApp OnCommand System Manager, there is only one SnapLock license - no difference between Compliance and Enterprise:

For whatever reason there are two different licenses

 

SnapLock                         xxxxxxxxxxxxxxAAAAAAAAAAA   SnapLock Compliance
SnapLock_Enterprise       xxxxxxxxxxxxxxAAAAAAAAAAA   SnapLock Enterprise

 

in the CMode_licenses_9.0.txt when downloading the simulator 9.0. That's slightly confusing.

Thank you for your quick answer!
