Re: how to check which licnese is Installed in Command View EVA

IIRC it depends on the cv version. Select the eva and you will see a licence tab at the top.

Hope this helps!

Command view version 6 it displays nothing any other way to find out which license is installed.

CV-EVA V6 and previous versions use a 'paper license' and simply did not have an electronic key. You do need to find the delivery receipt from when you received the license.

What about the new versions of CV EVA. IF electronic key has already been entered how can we check which license type is it.

Re: how to check which licnese is Installed in Command View EVA

- login to CV-EVA
- 'click' the EVA in the left tree and you will see the 'Initialized Storage System Properties' page
- below the buttons, there is a |Licensing| tab

- click this tab and you will get a summary of all licensed features (CV, BC, CA) and their licensed/used capacity.
Below that you will the a list of all license keys, whether they are permanent or temporary and when they will expire.

If you want to upgrade CV-EVA, you get a 60-day 'instant-on' (evaluation license). But: unless there is an urgent need to upgrade I strongly recommend that one gets hold of the keys first. There is always a chance that 'something goes wrong' and in the end you might end up with a system you cannot manage because the 'instant-on' license has expired.

I do not make fun! You cannot even add a failed disk to a disk group. We had this problem at one customer site when somebody else did upgrade to CV-EVA V7 and then said 'good bye'. This version offered 180 days of 'free management', but because several things, well, 'went wrong', he ended up with an unmanageable system.

Thanks for the the good information so lets talk about the CV EVA 6 that is in our case the receipts have been misplaced by the customer and need to find out the type of license installed.

Is there any other way.

Re: how to check which licnese is Installed in Command View EVA

The problem is that this information is not stored anywhere on the EVA or management server unless somebody has written it down.

On the other hand: somebody must have delivered the system - either a partner of HP (maybe via a distributor) or HP itself.
It is a good idea to start asking there.

Even if you cannot get the product number you might get another 'magic thing' called a "HP ordernumber". With this information somebody could look up the details.
