HAFM licensing changes?

The HAFM quickspecs (http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12024_na/12024_na.html) state that Performance Monitoring and Event Management are now included: "With version 8.02 of HAFM and later, there will be three complimentary software modules offered. They are Performance Monitoring, Event Management and SAN Planning.". My sales rep, however, is saying that the modules still need to be purchased and they're *VERY* pricey.

Can somebody please clarify whether they're really included or not?

Thanks,
.../Ed

Re: HAFM licensing changes?

Your initial statement is correct. Starting at the 8.X several there are license requirement for additional functionality. Some licenses are tied to the total number of ports managed by HAFM. The Planning license is independent of how many ports are managed, the rest are tied to how many ports are being managed by the HAFM, the initial license is for 512 ports, and can be incremented by 64 ports. The last two are combinations of Performance and Event Manager licenses. Open Fabric Management and LUN Management Option are not offered by HP. You should plan on purchasing those optional features which you will use.
