All DS8870 licensed functions are enabled, authorized, managed, activated, and enforced based upon the physical capacity contained in a 242x system. In the context of licensed functions, these terms are defined as follows:

For Multiple Target PPRC functionality, there is no requirement to activate this licensed function as long as the required license size for Metro Mirror, Global Mirror, and Metro/Global Mirror are ordered and activated.

Enablement refers to the selection of a 242x licensed function indicator feature number to technically activate the associated licensed function.

Authorization refers to the acquisition of a DS8000 series Function Authorization (IBM 239x) feature number to establish the extent of IBM authorization (license size in terms of physical capacity) for use of an associated licensed function. This is also referred to as the authorization level.

Management refers to client use of the Disk Storage Feature Activation (DSFA) application to select the license scope, assign the license value, and deactivate a licensed function.

Activation refers to the client retrieval and installation of the feature activation code into the 242x system. The feature activation code is made available by IBM and obtained using the DSFA application.

Enforcement refers to logic and other technology within the 242x's Licensed Machine Code to maintain compliance with established IBM authorization levels.

Enablement

Each licensed function is enabled for a 242x system through the selection of the appropriate licensed function indicator feature number on the 242x base unit.

Each licensed function indicator feature selected on a 242x base unit enables that function at the system level. These features are not selected on any attached 242x expansion units.

Authorization

The extent of IBM authorization for the use of a licensed function on a 242x system is established by acquiring 239x function authorization models and feature numbers for the 242x base unit.

Each function authorization acquired for a 242x base unit establishes the authorization level for the 242x system. For example, a system with Model 961 and two Model 96E expansion units requires only one operating environment (239x Model LFA feature numbers 70xx) function authorization. The authorization levels established by acquiring one or more function authorizations for the Model 961 must also cover the physical capacity of the attached Model 96E expansion units.

The authorization level provided by each feature number is stated within the feature number description. The unit represents physical capacity, where a terabyte (TB) equals one trillion bytes. A 242x system's total authorization level for a given licensed function is the sum of the units (TB) associated with all the acquired feature numbers.

Management

Licensed functions are managed using the DSFA application at

http://www.ibm.com/storage/dsfa

To access DSFA, you will be required to enter information about your 242x machine. You can find this information on the Storage Unit General Properties page in the IBM System Storage DS8000 Storage Manager application.

Management activities include:

License scope: Licensed functions are activated and enforced within a defined license scope. License scope refers to the type of storage, and therefore the type of servers, that the function can be used with.

Selected licensed functions have multiple license scope options, while other functions have only a single license scope.

Licensed function                 License scope options
 
Encrypted Drive Activation        ALL
Operating Environment             ALL
Thin Provisioning                 FB

If a licensed function has multiple license scope options, you will be required to select a license scope during the initial retrieval of the feature activation code. This activity is performed using the DSFA application.

The license scope is not selected while ordering function authorization feature numbers. The feature numbers only establish the extent of IBM authorization in terms of physical capacity, regardless of the storage type.

You can also change the license scope using the DSFA application after a licensed function has been activated. A new feature activation code will be generated and when you install it into the machine, the function will be activated and enforced using the newly selected license scope. Only an increase in the license scope (changing FB or CKD to ALL) is a nondisruptive activity. A lateral change (changing FB to CKD or changing CKD to FB) or a reduction of the license scope (changing ALL to FB or CKD) is a disruptive activity and requires a machine IML.

License value: Licensed functions are activated and enforced based upon an assigned license value.

License value refers to extent of IBM authorization and is referenced as physical capacity (TB).

On Model 961, license value assignment is an optional activity that can be perform using the DSFA application.

On these models, the feature activation codes will always be generated using the total license value for each licensed function, unless a license value of zero (0.0 TB) has been assigned.

Deactivation: Assigning a license value of zero (0.0 TB) provides the ability to deactivate (disable) a licensed function. A new feature activation code will be generated and when installed into the machine, the function will be deactivated during the next IML of the machine.

A deactivated licensed function can be reactivated by changing the license value to a nonzero value. A new feature activation code will be generated and when installed into the machine, the function will be activated. Reactivation is a nondisruptive activity.

When a licensed function is deactivated using the DSFA application, the installed function authorization feature numbers remain on the machine record. The function authorization feature numbers do not need to be reacquired to reactivate the licensed function at a future date.

Activation

Licensed functions are activated by the installation of feature activation codes into the 242x system. The feature activation codes are made available by IBM and are obtained using the DSFA application.

Enforcement

The 242x Licensed Machine Code contains logic and other technology to maintain compliance with established authorization levels. The physical capacity for each storage type can be logically configured up to the given authorization level. If there are multiple licensed functions with the same license scope, the extent of IBM authorization is defined by the licensed function with the lowest license value.

For a 242x machine with Standby Capacity on Demand (CoD) disk drives (#5xx9 features), activation (logical configuration) of CoD disk drives may exceed the extent of IBM authorization for a licensed function, in which case an increased authorization level must be acquired.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

Each DS8000 series Function Authorization (IBM 239x) establishes the extent of IBM authorization for one or more licensed functions acquired for an IBM DS8870 (IBM 242x). Each 239x function authorization is applicable only for the specific 242x machine (by serial number) for which it was acquired and is not transferable to another serial numbered 242x machine.

Each 239x function authorization requires a corequisite licensed function indicator feature number on the 242x machine for which it was acquired:

Operating environment

A per TB unit operating environment license and a value unit operating environment license are required on every 242x base unit (Model 961). The extent of IBM authorization acquired through the 239x Model LFA feature numbers must cover the physical capacity and the value units required for each acquired drive set of the 242x system, where system is defined as the base unit and all physically attached expansion units (excluding Standby CoD capacity).

The value unit operating environment licenses (Model LFA 7050-7065) are required in addition to the per TB unit operating environment licenses (feature numbers 7030-7045). For each drive set listed above, the corresponding number of value units must be purchased. This is required for the operating environment and for a valid system configuration.

The per TB unit operating environment license feature activation code can be retrieved and activated by using the DSFA application. The value unit operating environment licenses are mainly a pricing mechanism, so there will not be any feature activation code to be retrieved and activated by using the DSFA application.

If the operating environment license has not been acquired and activated on the machine, disk drives installed within the 242x system cannot be logically configured for use. Upon activation of the operating environment, disk drives can be logically configured up to the extent of IBM authorization.

As additional disk drives are installed, the extent of IBM authorization must be increased by acquiring additional 239x Model LFA feature numbers. Otherwise, the additional disk drives cannot be logically configured for use.

For a 242x system with Standby CoD disk drives (feature numbers 5xx9), activation (logical configuration) of CoD disk drives may exceed the extent of IBM authorization for the operating environment, in which case an increased authorization level must be acquired.

Customer responsibilities

Determining the required extent of IBM authorization

You are responsible for determining the extent of IBM authorization required for each licensed function. Your disk marketing specialist can help you with this activity. Below are some general guidelines:

Licensed function management and activation

Licensed function management and activation activities responsibilities:

These activities are your responsibility during the initial activation of a licensed function and when you increase the extent of IBM authorization.

DSFA application

To access DSFA, you will be required to enter information about your 242x machine. You can find this information on the Storage Unit General Properties page in the IBM System Storage DS8000 Storage Manager application.

The DSFA application is available at

http://www.ibm.com/storage/dsfa

You are responsible for downloading or obtaining from IBM, and installing designated Machine Code (microcode, basic input/output system code (called BIOS), utility programs, device drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM machine) and other software updates in a timely manner from an IBM Internet website or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides. You may request IBM to install Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Cable orders

No cables required.

Security, auditability, and control

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX® 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent, refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support Web site at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledge base. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.
