A performance tier license is requiered to complete the operation - Add new Disk Group

Hello I've one MSA 1050 with one cage the last FW version.

6 x SSD 400GB

I create DG DGA01:

10 x MDL 4TB (RAID6) Pool A

but When I try create this other DG: 

DGB01

6 x SSD 400GB (RAID6) Pool A

Show me this error:

A performance tier license is requiered to complete the operation - Add new Disk Group (picture)

 

Is it license mandatory? I only need two DG with diferent technologic without tier perfomance.

Thanks!

Yes, a performance tiering license is necessary if configuring both SSDs and HDDs as Virtual Disk Groups within the same system, not necessarily Pool. Without this license the system can be configured to use SSDs as either an all flash array or as Read Cache.

This license is sold as part of the Advanced Data Service Suite.

You ar not alone.

I have a lot of Customers who fall into the trap of "Tiering License",

Because you need it in this Case, if you do Tiering or not.

This is definitely the wrong name for this license.
