Re: OVSOM EVA3000 licenses

OVSOM (OpenView Storage Operations Manager) is a bundle of CV-EVA and HP OpenView Storage Area Manager (OVSAM), although only the Storage Node Manager (SNM) component is included in the OVSAM part.

A quick lookup via Google suggests that one part number is V1.0 while the other is V1.2.

Good luck if you try to upgrade to an unbundled CV license .....

Re: OVSOM EVA3000 licenses

Re: OVSOM EVA3000 licenses

No, it is not equivalent. The license includes two products:
- what is today known as CV-EVA
- a component of HP's old Storage Area Manager product
-- the replacement is Storage Essentials, but, honestly, you don't need to bother with OVSAM or SE because they are enterprise management products and simply overkill to monitor a single EVA3000.


Well, I feel that the transition to CV-7 with the new licensing was not handled well by HP when the product became available (I try not to sound too negative and won't go into detail - I have better things to do ;-).
