Try the below command,

#restore defaults factory

Keep in mind that it will remove everything including installed License.

Re: how make san storage emtpy

how i can back up license 

Re: how make san storage emtpy

check the output,

#show license

If you see any valure under "License Key" then there was license installed otherwise nothing was there.

You can copy the same to notepad and save it.

You should always refer the below guide to get commands,

Re: how make san storage emtpy

if i set restore defaults factory  on san storage  then  i can  install vms and host and other thing on it later?

Re: how make san storage emtpy

Yes it will be just like new system as it was in factory

You can again reconfigure everything and can install VMs and other things as it is

Re: how make san storage emtpy

why we use license on san storage?

Solution

Re: how make san storage emtpy

In order to understand about product, features and licensing you need to go through the Quickspec document as below,

https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/getdocument.aspx?docname=c04168365

For example, from the output you have shared you can see this system capable of handling 512 maximum Snapshots but with current condition you can only take 64 Snapshots which is bydefault. Apart from that you can see Replication is disabled. It will get enabled as well if you buy Replication license.

#show license 
License Key: 00000000000000000000000000000000

Maximum Licensable Snapshots: 512 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Maximum Snapshot capable
Base Maximum Snapshots: 64
Licensed Snapshots: 64 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> right now capable of taking snapshot
In-Use Snapshots: 0
Volume Copy: Enabled
Replication: Disabled >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Replication can be enabled
VDS: Enabled
VSS: Enabled

Hope this helps!

Re: how make san storage emtpy

what differ  between restore default factory and local-only and prompt?

Re: how make san storage emtpy

Please refer the P2000 Command Line Reference (CLI) guide which I have shared earlier and look for section "Settings changed by restore defaults" - this will give you idea about what all will get change in normal restore defaults or local only and factory defaults

 

Hope this helps!
