CommandView Upgrade...

I have an EVA 3000 which is under current support. It is currently running CV 6 and I would like to move it to CV7. What do I need to do in order to convert the existing license to a CV 7 license?

Hi There,

As I guess you know ?? your existing licences will not be valid with CV7. Therefore you will need to get your licences "sorted out" by going to:

https://webware.hp.com/welcome.asp

NOTE: With CV7 and above you will also require a Command View licence as well, equal to or greater than the total TB's of storage you already have. EG 21.5TB total storage = 22TB CV licence or unlimited.

If you do convert to CV7 prior to sorting out your licences then you will have 180 days instance/unlimited CV/BC/CA. Once your time is up you will not be able to create vdisks, snapshots, snapclones etc [but "delete" will still work !] until you have installed your new licences.
CV8 has 60 days unlimited.

Good luck.

Yes, I am aware of the license changes between 6 and 7. I guess my question is more in terms of process.

I know what when I register a CV7 license I need to generate a new key do I need to do generate a new key when going from 6 to 7? Do I need to migrate the key? What information do I need to actually do the upgrade (Sales Order ? ) etc.

Hi,

Take a look at the following site, if you haven't already:

http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storage/software/cmdvieweva/licensing.html

If you have a support contract, then you should have received the licences in the mail...

Cheers,

Rob
