EVA4000 licensing issues

I have EVA4000 disk array and i have purchased 1TB LTU, currently i have about 860GB total but when i installed my license it giver error that Licensed capacity exceeded.

I cant create or present Vdisks to any other hosts and i know i have not yet reached the 1TB upper limit.
I also have CA license 1TB ltu but no matter what license i get from webware.hp.com or hp password delivery center nothing works,

I am running Command View EVA6 is there somethingl ike a patch i need to install to work around this???

Please assist

Kind regards,

Re: EVA4000 licensing issues

Hi James,

Command View EVA6 doesn't enforce the EVA LTU... in fact I don't recall anywhere to actually install licenses on that version...

Maybe something's getting confused in CA.

Re: EVA4000 licensing issues

sorry my bad,

the commandview EVA version is 7

the issue is 1TB licence(1024GB) but my total raw capacity is 1093GB so i am not able to create or present vdisks to any hosts

is there a way round it or i have to add another 1TB ltu??

Re: EVA4000 licensing issues

You have to add another CV-EVA 1TB LTU at least. CV-EVA counts against the complete physical disk space unlike CA + BC which count against source virtual disk space.
