Hi

I thought the license is for the total number of disks.

The whole array.

If you're losing nodes or PDs, you have more serious problems.

thanks Dennis

 

Q1 : as i know depend on array model it differs , for 7400c up to 164 disk must have license and higher are free for copy/optimization services , so when i have only 48 disk licence what will happen to rest of new 10 disks ?

 

Q2 : license applies to whole array means where? on controller ? on disk ? i have enough spare parts so on controller or disk changing should license be apllied again ?

 

Thanks

You won't be able to admit them.

 

>Q2: license applies to whole array means where?

 

Whole means everything.

They apply to the array and are attached to the array serial number.
