Command View EVA Trial License -What happens after trial license expires?

Hi.
I upgraded command view from 3.11 to 9.3 and it automatically gave me 2 months trial license. Since my existing license only covered 4 TB while I have 6 TB SAN, I could not use existing license.

I am working on getting the correct license, process is dragging because of admin issues.

Question:
What will happen to SAN if trial license expires and I do not have the right license in my hand?

Thanks

1st of all please note that CV EVA 3.x version used FlexLM version of license and CV EVA 9.x version used Autopas license.

You can not use FlexLM version license for CV EVA 9.x version.

Whatever your SAN is 4TB or 6TB you need to contact licensing team to get the license for CV EVA 9.x version.

Please find the following,

The EVA stays up and running, you just cannot make any changes to it. I think RSM jobs will stop also.

> you just cannot make any changes to it.

And that implies the unability to regroup replacement disk drives !!

Good point Uwe. I think you can get an emergency license for a short time but I would escalate this before you to that point.
