Introduction 15

About this guide This guide describes the licensing options available in NetWorker 18.1 that you can use to permanently license the NetWorker software. You can download the software from https://support.emc.com. NetWorker 18.1 has extended the license-free trial period without requiring a license to 90 days. NetWorker enters evaluation mode for 90 days and a grace period of 30 days is activated automatically ( a total of 120 days). NetWorker 18.1 allows you to use a served or unserved license.

The information in this guide assumes that the NetWorker software is installed and that all of the software and hardware requirements have been met on the computer that accesses the NetWorker Management Console (NMC) interface, known as the Console. These requirements are described in the NetWorker Installation Guide.

Differences between served and unserved licenses NetWorker 18.1 allows you to use a served or unserved license. A served license requires installation and configuration of the Dell EMC License Server, also known as the CLP License Server. An unserved license does not require you to install the License Server or open any associated firewall ports to enable communication with the License Server.

The following table demonstrates the differences between served and unserved licenses.

Table 3 Differences between served and unserved licenses

Served license Unserved license

License Server required License Server not required

Port/firewall dependency No port/firewall dependency

extra cost. The customer should work with their Dell/EMC sales account team to start the process.

Installing the Dell EMC license server (served licenses only) After you install the NetWorker software, if using a served license you must install the Dell EMC License Server to enable the Dell EMC Licensing Solution. Installation packages for the License Server are available from the same download location as the NetWorker software.

Before you begin

Ensure that you install the License Server on a system that is accessible to all datazones that will require access to the License Server.

If you do not install the License Server during the NetWorker software installation, you can install this server later. If NetWorker does not detect the license and an nsrd check does not discover any licenses, NetWorker enters evaluation mode for 90 days and grace period of 30 days is activated automatically. You can install the License Server at any time during the evaluation period to enable the Dell EMC Licensing Solution.

Review this section for basic instructions about how to install the License Server on a Windows or Linux 64-bit platform. Use the License Server Installation and Administration Guide for complete License Server installation and setup instructions.

Note

Installation of the License Server on a NetWorker Virtual Edition (NVE) appliance is not supported.

Install the license server (Windows 64-bit platform) After you complete the NetWorker 18.1 installation, install the License Server from the 64-bit Windows package. The License Server package name for Windows is EMC_LicenseServer_3.4.0_x64 installer.msi.

Before you begin

During the NetWorker installation, do not select the option to install the NetWorker License Manager software. To use the Dell EMC Licensing Solution, the NetWorker License Manager is not required.

If using a served license, the License Server is required for new and upgraded installations of NetWorker 18.1, even if you plan on using traditional enabler-based licensing.

Procedure

1. Download the Windows 64-bit installation package from the same location that you downloaded the NetWorker software from.

2. To start the Dell EMC License Server Setup wizard, open the EMC_LicenseServer_3.4.0_x64 installer.msi file.

The following figure displays the Dell EMC License Server Setup Wizard.

3. Click Next to review and accept the License agreement.

4. Leave the destination folder for the installation of the Dell EMC License Server software as \EMC License Server.

5. Click Next, and then click Finish to complete the wizard.

Results

When the installation completes, a shortcut for the LMTOOLS utility appears on your desktop. LMTOOLS allows you to manage the License Server. To complete the setup and configuration, perform the steps in the sections Set up the served license file and LMTOOLS configuration on Windows.

Install the license server (Linux 64-bit platform) After you complete the NetWorker 18.1 installation, install the License Server from the 64-bit Linux package. The License Server package name on Linux for Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 5 and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server version 11 is emclicenseserver-3.4.1-2.x86_64_lsb.rpm . The package name for Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6 and 7 and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server version 12 is emclicenseserver-3.5.0-1.x86_64_lsb.rpm. If using a served license, the License Server is required for new and upgraded installations of NetWorker 18.1, even if you plan on using the traditional enabler-based licensing model.

Before you begin

On the License Server, create a folder called /opt/emc/licenses, and copy the license file that you obtain from Dell EMC Licensing to this folder.

Note

During the NetWorker 18.1 installation, do not install the NetWorker License Manage package, lgtolicm. The NetWorker License Manager is not required to use the Dell EMC Licensing Solution.

Licensing the NetWorker Server

28 NetWorker 18.1 Licensing Guide

Procedure

1. Download the Linux 64-bit installation package from the same location that you downloaded the NetWorker software from.

2. Log in to Linux as root or as a user with sudo privileges.

3. At the command prompt, type the following command to install the package, using the appropriate package version. For example:

/opt/emc # rpm -v -i /tmp/ emclicenseserver-3.5.0-1.x86_64_lsb.rpm

4. To confirm that the installation was successful perform the following steps:

a. Type ls /opt/emc/emclicenseserver/

b. In the directory listing output, verify that the following files were extracted:

l EMCLM l lmgrd l lmutil l Readme.txt

Note

After you install the License Server software on a Linux platform, the following error might appear: "-bash: ./lmgrd: No such file or directory". This error occurs because a library file is missing, typically the ld-lsb-x86-64.so.3 library file. If the library file does not exist on your system or, the incorrect version is installed, you must install the correct package. To verify which package the library file belongs to, you can run an rpm query if rpm packages are on your system. For example, type rpm - qf /lib64/ld-lsb-x86-64.so.3 lsb-4.0-22.3.1.x86_64. After you install the package that contains the required library file, the License Server should start.

Set up the served license file The license file that you obtain from Dell EMC Licensing contains information about the license entitlement type (a Capacity or Update Entitlement), whether the license is served, and, if applicable, the License Server configuration. Dell EMC Licensing populates the file with this information after you provide the details and requirements for your environment. It is recommended that you do not edit the license file. Doing so can corrupt the file, which makes it unusable by the License Server and the NetWorker Server.

Before you begin

It is recommended that you obtain the license file before you install the License Server. When using a served license and you install the License Server before obtaining the license file, record the server hostname/IP and port number because you must provide this information to Dell EMC Licensing to populate the file with these details. If the default port 27000 is unavailable, select an open port that can be used for communication between the License Server and the NetWorker software. It is recommended that, at a minimum, you keep ports 27000 and 27001 open.

Licensing the NetWorker Server

Set up the served license file 29

Procedure

1. If you have not already obtained the license file from Dell EMC Licensing, contact Dell EMC Licensing to obtain the file.

A license file with a Capacity Entitlement looks similar to the following example for a served license.

Figure 7 Sample license file with Capacity Entitlement

2. When using a served license, create a directory in the location where you installed the License Server.

For example, on the License Server, create the following directories:

l On Windows: C:\Program Files\EMC License Server\elms \licenses

l On Linux: /opt/emc/licenses

Note

On Linux, you might be required to complete this step before you install the License Server package.

3. Copy the license file to the License Server directory that you previously created. Do not rename the license file. To apply the license in the NetWorker server, follow the steps in the section NetWorker 18.1 new installation with served license.

Note

Manage the License Server (Linux) On Linux, you can manage and start the License Server with the lmgrd command.

Before you begin

Before you run the lmgrd command, ensure that you complete the following tasks:

l Create the/opt/emc/licenses for the license file and the /opt/emc/ emclicenseserver/logs directory for the log files.

l Add the license file that you received from Dell EMC Licensing to the /opt/emc/ licenses directory.

Procedure

1. To start the License Server, at the command prompt, type lmgrd.

# ./lmgrd -l /opt/emc/emclicenseserver/logs/lmgrd.log - c /opt/emc/licenses

2. To manage the License Server, type the lmgrd command with the following arguments:

lmgrd [-c license_file_list] [-l [+]debug_log_path] [-2 -p] [- local] [-x lmdown] [-x lmremove] [-z] [-v] [-help]

The following table provides information about the arguments that you can use with the lmgrd command. The section Lmutil application provides more information on available arguments.

Table 6 lmgrd arguments

Argument Description

-c license_file_list Directs use of the specified license files.

-l [+]debug_log_path Writes debugging information to file debug_log_path. This

option uses the letter l, not the numeral 1. Prefixing

debug_log_path with the + character appends logging

entries. Use the -l option before other options to log all

debugging information to debug_log_path.

-2 -p Restricts use of the lmdown, lmreread, lmremove,

lmswitch, lmswitchr, and lmnewlog utilities, to a license

administrator who is, by default, root. If there is a UNIX group called lmadmin, use is restricted to members only of that

group. If root is not a member of this group, root does not have permission to use any of the mentioned utilities. If -2 -p is used

Licensing the NetWorker Server

Table 6 lmgrd arguments (continued)

Argument Description

when starting lmgrd, no Windows user can shut down the

License Server with lmdownor use the lmswitch, lmswitchr,

and lmnewlog utilities.

-local Restricts the lmdown and lmreread commands so they can

run only from the same system where lmgrd is running.

-x lmdown Disables the lmdown command so no user can run lmdown. If

lmdown is disabled, stop lmgrd with the kill pid command,

or stop the lmgrd and vendor daemon processes through the

Windows Task Manager or Windows service. On Linux, ensure that the kill command does not have a -9 argument.

-x lmremove Disables the lmremove command (no user can run lmremove).

-z Run in foreground. The default behavior is to run in the background. If you specify-l debug_log_path, no windows

are used. If you do not specify the -l argument, separate

windows are used for lmgrd and each vendor daemon.

-v Displays the lmgrd version number and copyright, and then

exits.

-help Displays usage information, and then exits.

-reuseaddr Allows the server to explicitly bind to a same port, which remains in TIME_WAIT state after the server restarts or crashes.

Start the License Server without a license file If you have not obtained a license file, you can start the License Server by using the lmgrd command. When you add a license file, you can also run a command to re-read the file.

Procedure

1. To start the License Server without copying a license file to the license directory, from a command prompt, type the following command:

#./lmgrd -l /opt/emc/emclicenseserver/logs/lmgrd.log -c

/opt/emc/licenses

2. To view the log file, type the following command:

/opt/emc/emclicenseserver # cat /opt/emc/emclicenseserver/ logs/lmgrd.log

3. To view what is running as the License Server, type the following command:

/opt/emc/emclicenseserver # ps -aef | grep lmgrd 4. After you obtain a license file, copy the file to the license directory, /opt/emc/

licenses.

5. To reread the license file, type the following command:

#lmutil lmstat -a -c /opt/emc/licenses

Licensing the NetWorker Server

Manage the License Server (Linux) 33

#lmutil lmreread -c /opt/emc/licenses

lmutil application In addition to lmgrd, you can use the lmutil application to manage some aspects of the License Server. This application is available on all platforms.

lmutil application arguments The following table provides a list of the valid arguments for most lmutil utilities.

Table 7 lmutil arguments

Argument Description

-c

Most lmutil utilities need the path to the license file. This is specified with

the -c license_file_path argument.

-help Displays usage information and exits.

-v Displays the version of the utility and exits.

-verbose Displays a longer description for errors that are found.

For the first argument of a lmutil command, you can specify one of the following utilities:

l lmdowngracefully stops a license server system (manager and vendor daemon)

l lmhostidcalculates a hostid to identify a system or user

l lmrereadinstructs the license server system to reread license and option files, and start new vendor daemons

l lmstatdisplays the status of a license server system

l lmswitchcontrols license server log location and size

l lmverdisplays the version of a FLEXnet executable

The following table provides more information about the most common or useful commands that are helpful for troubleshooting License Server issues.

Table 8 Useful lmutil commands

Command Purpose

lmutil lmhostid Obtains the MAC address system information from the current system. A MAC address is a valid node-locking choice (HOSTID=) and can also be used in the SERVER line of a license file to identify the License Server. If multiple MAC addresses are listed by the command, use the first one. For example:

lmutil lmhostid

Verify the MAC address with its use in any license files. If the MAC address does not match any of the relevant uses, a mistake might have been made when the system information was entered for license activation.

Licensing the NetWorker Server

34 NetWorker 18.1 Licensing Guide

Table 8 Useful lmutil commands (continued)

Command Purpose

lmutil lmreread Forces the License Server to instruct the Dell EMC vendor daemon to reread the license file for changes. Use this command if new or changed license files are made available. This command allows the License Server and the Dell EMC vendor daemon to continue to run and to update the internal cache of the license features from newly updated license files. For example:

lmutil lmreread -vendor EMCLM

lmutil lmstat Use this command to determine the running status of the License Server lmgrd. For

example:

lmutil lmstat -a

lmutil lmdown When you provide the name of the license file that you used to start the License Server, this command gracefully shuts down the License Server and Dell EMC vendor daemon. To ensure that the proper processes are terminated, specify the license file name. You might be asked to confirm the shutdown before proceeding. For example:

Additional Information About NetWorker Licensing

The Appendix includes the following topics:

l About the traditional enabler-based licensing model.......................................... 42 l The evaluation process.......................................................................................43 l License process flow..........................................................................................46 l Permanently license the NetWorker software.................................................... 47 l Product licenses.................................................................................................53

Additional Information About NetWorker Licensing 41

About the traditional enabler-based licensing model You can download and evaluate NetWorker software and added features, such as modules, from the Dell EMC Online Support website at https://support.emc.com. The software can be evaluated for 90 days without an enabler code or license. The evaluation process on page 43 provides information.

To permanently use the NetWorker software with the traditional enabler-based licensing model, you must license the software on the Dell EMC Licensing website and apply the supplied licensing key to the NetWorker server. The license key includes permanent enabler codes and corresponding authorization (auth) codes. Permanently license the NetWorker software on page 47 provides information. Additionally, theDell EMC Software Price Guide: Open Storage Software provides more details.

Base enabler Each installation of NetWorker server software must be licensed with a server enabler, called a base enabler. This enabler activates the software and validates the use of a particular bundle of features, such as a specified number of clients and devices. All license keys are entered and stored on the NetWorker server, which enforces the licensing.

Base enablers come in different editions that enable varying degrees of functionality. Add-on enablers allow a broad scope of additional features.

NOTICE

You cannot delete the base enabler. You can use the nsrcap command-line utility to upgrade or downgrade the base enabler. However, after you upgrade or downgrade a base enabler, you cannot restore to the original lower function base enabler. You must obtain a new base enabler from Dell EMC Licensing. For example, if you upgrade from Work Edition to Power Edition but then regress to Work Edition, the original Work Edition base enabler is invalid. You must obtain a new Work Edition base enabler from Dell EMC Licensing.

The following tips apply to the base enabler:

l As soon as the base enabler is entered, the evaluation mode ends. A function that was available during a 90-day evaluation mode must be specifically enabled with either an evaluation or permanent enabler.

l When entering a group of enablers, always type the base enabler last to avoid disabling features that require a license that is separate from the base enabler.

Evaluation enabler Evaluation enablers are free and must be applied on the NetWorker server. An evaluation enabler extends the evaluation period for an additional 45 days. The evaluation enabler cannot be extended or permanently enabled. It must be removed from the production environment before or on its expiry date.

Evaluation enabler provides more information.

Additional Information About NetWorker Licensing

42 NetWorker 18.1 Licensing Guide

Update enabler An update enabler is necessary to move from an existing major NetWorker release to a newer major NetWorker release.

Updating within a minor release, for example, from NetWorker 8.2 SP1 to NetWorker 8.2 SP2, does not require an update enabler.

If an update enabler is required, the NetWorker software automatically adds the required update enabler code to its configuration. The update enabler expires after 90 days. You must contact Dell EMC Licensing within 90 days to permanently authorize the update enabler.

NOTICE

If the authorization (auth) code for the update enabler code is not applied within 90 days, the NetWorker server software is disabled. Entering an auth code enables the software even if the update enabler code has expired.

View the update enabler alert An alert message is generated 45 days before a NetWorker update enabler code expires. This alert remains until the NetWorker update enabler is authorized.

To view the license alert, use one of the following methods:

l In the NetWorker Administration window:

1. Click Monitoring.

2. Select the Alert tab.

l In the Console window, click Events.

l At the command prompt, type nsrwatch.

A colored icon within the alert message indicates that the update enabler will expire within 45 days. The message appears daily up to and including the day of the update enabler code expires.

Before the end of the evaluation period, contact your authorized reseller, or the Dell EMC sales team to obtain your update authorization code.

By the end of the evaluation period, you must permanently license the software to continue using modules or features that you have evaluated. If you do not permanently authorize the update enabler before its expiry, your backups might be impacted. Permanently license the NetWorker software on page 47 provides information.

The evaluation process Dell EMC NetWorker software and added features, such as modules, can be downloaded and evaluated for free from the Dell EMC support website or the media kit.

You can evaluate NetWorker software in two ways:

l Evaluating a new installation of NetWorker software

l Evaluating features of an existing NetWorker installation

By the end of the evaluation period, you must permanently license the NetWorker software to continue using modules or features that you have evaluated. Permanently license the NetWorker software on page 47 provides information.

Additional Information About NetWorker Licensing

Update enabler 43

Evaluate a new installation of NetWorker software When you first install the NetWorker software, you can evaluate the software with all the modules and features for 90 days without entering any enabler codes or licenses.

Obtain evaluation enabler extensions on page 44 provides information about extending the evaluation period for an additional 30 days.

Evaluating features of an existing NetWorker installation If you are evaluating one or more NetWorker modules or features on an edition of NetWorker software that has already been installed and licensed, perform the following steps:

Procedure

1. Contact your Dell EMC sales representative or your authorized reseller who will place an EVAL order on your behalf. As a result of the activation of your Eval License Authorization Code (LAC) number, you will obtain a temporary license key.

2. On the NetWorker server, type an evaluation enabler code for each module or feature to be evaluated. Apply an evaluation enabler code on page 44 provides information.

Obtain evaluation enabler extensions Evaluation enablers are free and must be applied on the NetWorker server. A grace period allows you to extend the evaluation period for an additional 15 days. The grace period cannot be extended or permanently enabled. After the evaluation period and the grace period, the enabler must be removed from the production environment before or on its expiry date.

To obtain entitlement extensions and the resulting evaluation enablers, do one of the following:

l Contact your Dell EMC sales representative or your authorized reseller who will place an EVAL order on your behalf.

l Refer to the media kit for Dell EMC Information Protection and Availability Product Families.

License process flow To permanently use the NetWorker software to back up and recover data, you must license the software. The licensing process is the same for all NetWorker software editions, and for the individual modules and features.

The following figure illustrates the licensing process flow.

Figure 10 NetWorker license process flow

During the NetWorker licensing process:

1. Dell EMC verifies the customer purchase order. The SysAdmin downloads the NetWorker software from the Dell EMC Online Support Site.

2. Dell EMC generates a License Authorization Code (LAC) letter and emails it to the customer. SysAdmin installs the NetWorker software in evaluation mode.

3. The SysAdmin receives an email with the LAC and obtains the host ID of the NetWorker server.

4. The SysAdmin applies the host ID and LAC to activate certificates.

5. Dell EMC Licensing generates the certificates and allows you to save a copy of the certificate or sends it as an email to the address of your choice.

6. The SysAdmin receives an email that includes the enablers and authorization codes.

7. The SysAdmin applies the enablers and authorization codes for permanent NetWorker licensing.

The NetWorker license process consists of the following basic steps:

1. Download and install the software for evaluation.

2. Purchase the required NetWorker product, options, and modules from Dell EMC or an authorized partner. The purchase order for the software lists the requested NetWorker product, options, and modules. Dell EMC sends a LAC certificate by email in response to the valid purchase order.

Upgrade or downgrade the base enabler, if required If a base enabler is already installed on a NetWorker server for extended evaluation, an error message appears when you attempt to install a new base enabler.

While you cannot uninstall the base enabler, you can upgrade or downgrade it.

Use the following procedure to upgrade or downgrade the base enabler.

Procedure

1. On the NetWorker server, open a command prompt.

2. At the command prompt, type the following at the command:

nsrcap -u base_enabler_code -a authorization_code

Apply the license key on the NetWorker server Apply the license key on the NetWorker server to complete the licensing process. The product license activation email provides license keys, which consists of permanent enablers and authorization codes.

NOTICE

If you installed evaluation enablers that are not yet expired, to license the NetWorker software permanently you must apply the license key. The recommended way to install NetWorker license keys is to automatically import and install them from the license key file, which is provided by Dell EMC Licensing.

If you cannot automatically import and install the license keys, you can manually install them.

Use the following procedure to import and apply the NetWorker license keys from Dell EMC Licensing directly to a NetWorker server or a NetWorker License Manager system.

2. Download the license key files.

3. Ensure that no NetWorker backups are running.

4. Run the following nsradmin commands from a comand prompt, in the directory where the license key file is located. You can run the nsradmin command from any NetWorker client, storage node, or server:

l To install the NetWorker license keys on a local NetWorker server, type:

nsradmin -i license_key_file > output_file

l To install the NetWorker license keys on a remote NetWorker server, type:

nsradmin -i license_key_file -s server_name > output_file

l To install the NetWorker license keys on a NetWorker License Manager system, type:

nsradmin -i license_key_file -s server_name -p 390115 > output_file

5. Open and review the output_file for success or failure messages to ensure that the NetWorker licenses have been properly installed:

l Successful entry message:

If the first attempt to load a license was successful, an entry similar to the following one appears in the output file:

C:\PROGRA~1\Legato\nsr\bin\std>nsradmin -i infile created resource id 25.0.0.20.96.108.23.72.137.69.168.135(1) Current query set updated resource id 25.0.0.20.96.108.23.72.137.69.168.135(2)

l Failed entry message:

n This entry in the output file indicates that the license already exists in NetWorker and you can ignore the message:

To work around this issue, start the NetWorker processes on the NetWorker server.

Product licenses NetWorker software and added features, such as modules, can be downloaded and evaluated for free from the Dell EMC Online Support website or the media kit. The software can be evaluated for 90 days without an enabler code or license. A grace period allows you to extend the evaluation period for an additional 10 days for each added feature.

To permanently use the NetWorker software, you must license the software on the Dell EMC Licensing site and apply the supplied licensing key on the NetWorker server. The license key includes permanent enabler codes and corresponding authorization (auth) codes.

The Dell EMC Software Price Guide: Open Storage Software provides additional detailed licensing information.

NetWorker 45-Day evaluation enabler codes The following table lists the 45-day temporary evaluation enabler codes for NetWorker products. These codes can be used to extend the evaluation period on NetWorker server products.

These codes can be used to extend the evaluation period on NetWorker server products for customers that wish to evaluate the NetWorker software and available modules and features. These codes can also be used for Dell EMC field internal testing and demonstration purposes.

If your NetWorker software is purchased and licensed, you can use these codes to evaluate the rest of the Dell EMC family of products. If more than one enabler code is listed for a part number, any of the codes can be used.

Consider the following points:

l These enabler codes cannot be permanently authorized. To permanently authorize NetWorker products, you must purchase new enabler codes, which can then be authorized.

l Each evaluation enabler code can be entered on only one computer on the network. If a code is entered on more than one computer on the same network, a copy violation error occurs and the NetWorker server software is disabled.

l Case is important when entering enabler codes.

Troubleshooting and Best Practices 75

License Conformance Summary In the course of using NetWorker software to protect enterprise data, users add clients, modules, and devices as needed. A summary report of the current license information for any given NetWorker server can be helpful.

A summary report enables users to determine several things. For example:

l Which or how many products or features have been enabled

l Which or how many licenses have been purchased and authorized

l Which or how many of the licenses have been used and how many are still available

l How many additional licenses might be needed

l Whether the number of licenses conforms to the number of licenses in use

From the Console, you can request a License Conformance Summary report that shows relevant information about the NetWorker-related product licenses that have been purchased or are being evaluated.

In NetWorker 9.0.1 and later, capacity entitlement is manually assigned. The License Conformance report will show only the capacity entitlements that the administrator has assigned to the individual NetWorker server.

The information is presented in a tabular form that displays installed products, licenses that are in conformance, and which additional licenses, if any, must be obtained to close conformance gaps.

In addition to product and license information, the summary displays certain details about the environment and the software version that the NetWorker server is running.

Displaying the License Conformance Summary Follow this procedure to display the License Conformance Summary and review licensing information.

Procedure

1. In the main Console window, on the taskbar, click Enterprise.

2. In the navigation tree, highlight a host and in the right pane, right-click NetWorker, and then select Launch Application.

The NetWorker Administration window appears.

3. On the taskbar, click the Configuration.

4. On the toolbar, select Configuration > License Conformance Summary .

The License Conformance Summary appears.

5. Click OK or Cancel to exit the summary.

6. You can also display the License Conformance Summary in the servers navigation tree. Right-click Registrations and select License Conformance Summary.

License Conformance Summary details The License Conformance Summary provides the following information:

l Server and environment information:

76 NetWorker 18.1 Licensing Guide

n NetWorker Server: Name of the NetWorker server.

n Version: NetWorker software release and build number.

n Full Conformance: Possible values are Yes, No, or, if in evaluation mode, Eval.

n Base License: Possible values include:

The NetWorker edition that is installed

Eval indicates evaluation mode.

Yes or No indicates whether an authorization code has been applied to the license.

Disabled indications that the server has been disabled.

n Operating System: Operating system installed on the NetWorker server.

n Report Date: Date and time when the summary was created.

l License related information is displayed in the following columns:

n License: Type of license. For example, Storage Node, Client, module name.

n Number Used: How many licenses of this type have been used.

n Number of Licenses: How many licenses of this type are installed and not expired on the server. While the license is in evaluation mode, the number displayed is the maximum number possible for the license type.

n % Conformance: Degree to which the number of licenses purchased is less than or equal to the number used. For DiskBackup Option and Virtual Tape Library, this might be blank, because more than one device can be created for each license of these license types.

n Notes: Additional information, specific to the license type, provided by the system. For example, the capacity of a DiskBackup license.

n A checksum (five groups of generated alphanumeric characters) is listed at the bottom of the summary if the summary contents are valid. Users may ignore this line.

l For the DiskBackup Option (DBO) and the Virtual Tape Library (VTL) frames license types, the Number Used is the number of DBO devices or VTL jukeboxes that the user has created. The Number of Licenses is the number of DBO licenses or VTL frame licenses that are installed. DBO and VTL are the only license types for which the Number Used can exceed the Number of Licenses. This is because more than one device can be created for each license of this type.

l The License Conformance Summary is not available for use with the NetWorker License Manager software.

l The License Conformance Summary supports the standard Console table functions, such as Print and Export.

l A time-stamped snapshot License Conformance Summary is sent to the /nsr/logs directory at the start of each quarter.

l The NetWorker server updates license information only once daily, at noon. Changes made after noon will be reflected in the next days update.

l License Conformance is a new attribute for the server (nsr) resource.

l License Conformance Checksum is a new attribute used by the system to maintain the integrity of the summary.

When viewing the License Conformance Summary, consider the following:
