Position of the disk, relative to its container type. It sometimes happens with conversions, rushed installs etc, that the cluster base license key is unavailable, and a well known temporary key is used which corresponds to serial 180000099, so you will sometimes see customers with multiple clusters with the serial 180000099. If there are license keys installed that do not match a Controller Serial Number, error messages will be displayed. If sanitizing is interrupted while target disks are being formatted, the disks must be reformatted before sanitizing can finish. The default pattern is three passes, using 0x55 for the first pass, 0xaa for the second pass, and 0x3c for the third pass. The grace period ends after the 24-hour period, and all previously installed licenses that were associated with the original system serial number will be removed from the new controller.
The maximum value is seven cycles. You migrate data using the ndmpcopy command. Type of overlying disk container. . Then, permanent license keys for the new controller will be posted to Support site and an email will be sent to the contact on file and, if necessary, support will be available to walk the customer through the license key installation. The Cluster Uniformity policy is a business policy that is different than the license enforcement implementation. The rental agreement is proof of the entitlement.
To exit the grace period, install permanent license keys for the features. Note that the business and sales policy requires that all features being used in a cluster must be entitled on all nodes in the cluster, and best practices recommend that valid license keys be installed for all deployed features on all the nodes of a cluster, which ensures maximum protection for a head failure situation. How selective disk sanitization works Disk sanitization is the process of physically obliterating data by overwriting disks with specified byte patterns or random data so that recovery of the original data becomes impossible. You can extend an eval by requesting and installing a new eval key with a later expiration date. The customer contact will also receive an automated e-mail reminder 75 days after the head swap to remind them of the need to install permanent keys.
The cluster serial number can be changed if necessary. The default value is one cycle. Yes, motherboard change-outs require the transfer of entitlements, generation of new license keys, and installation of those keys. A list of disks owned by a storage system, or unowned disks. DescriptionThe storage port show command displays information about the storage ports in the cluster. This entitlement is represented by a purchase order and license agreement.
To list the values in use for a particular field, include the -fields parameter. A node can be designated as Epsilon to add weight to its voting in a cluster with an even number of nodes. Contact your Support representative to complete the Entitlement Transfer process and obtain your new license keys. When a head swap occurs, a part request case and a non-technical case must be opened with NetApp Support. The license details 'usage rights'; how the customer can use and should not use the entitlement, while the purchase order is proof the license was legally acquired. They will then provide support, but they will not provide a permanent license key for the feature however, they might provide a temporary license key.
We only hand them out to a single customer, but it isn't node-locked and can be used in multiple clusters. The license cleanup or license remove can be used to remove unnecessary demo licenses. The cluster serial is set based on the cluster base license key entered. This document and the information contained herein may be used solely in connection with the NetApp products discussed in this document. If a customer wants to join existing systems to an existing cluster, they must submit a license key request through their sales or support representative.
A License is then granted, and in most cases a License Key is provided to enable the licensed software to operate. Entitlements are recorded in NetApp business systems through the sales process.

These keys will typically be generated as part of the order for the new systems assuming new systems are being purchased to add to the cluster. Only with this information can NetApp provide the new license keys for the replacement controller. The disk sanitize command uses three successive default or user-specified byte overwrite patterns for up to seven cycles per operation. Hardware upgrades also require new license keys, but those keys will typically be purchased and available with the new hardware.
The support team will check to see if the customer is entitled to support and then check to see if the controller in question is entitled to the software feature with the issue. For example, consider the rental car model. You can start, stop, and display the status of the sanitization process. If a storage port is specified, then this parameter displays detailed information for that port only. If the specified disks are undergoing the disk formatting phase of sanitization, the abort will not occur until the disk formatting is complete.
