The following licensed functions are available on IBM DS8880 (Machine type 5331, 5332, 5333, and 5334):

Licensed function Description
Base Function (BF) IBM DS8000 Base function
Copy Services (CS) IBM DS8000 Copy Services
z-synergy Services (zsS) IBM DS8000 z-synergy Services
Copy Services Manager on HMC (CSM on HMC) IBM DS8000 Copy Services Manager on HMC

All DS8880 licensed functions are enabled, authorized, managed, activated, and enforced based upon the physical capacity contained in a 533x system. In the context of licensed functions, these terms are defined as follows:

  • "533x system" refers to the 533x base unit and all physically attached 533x expansion units:
    • A 533x base unit refers to the Models 984, 985, 986, and 988
    • A 533x expansion unit refers to the Models 85E, 86E, and 88E

Enablement refers to the selection of a 533x licensed function indicator feature number to technically activate the associated licensed function.

Authorization refers to the acquisition of a DS8000 series Function Authorization (IBM 904x) 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 533x 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 Licensed Machine Code of the 904x to maintain compliance with established IBM authorization levels.


Note: For Copy Services Manager on HMC entitlement, an order of IBM Copy Services Manager 6.x.x (5725-Z54) is required before you can configure Copy Services Manager on HMC on MT 533x on the required capacity. Ensure the number of years for software support and maintenance is purchased is tied to the warranty of the MT 533x.


Enablement

Each licensed function is enabled for a 533x system through the selection of the appropriate licensed function indicator feature number on the 533x base unit.

Licensed function Licensed function indicator
Base Function (BF) 904x feature numbers 81xx
Copy Services (CS) 904x feature numbers 82xx
z-synergy Services (zsS) 904x feature numbers 83xx
Copy Services Manager on HMC (CSM on HMC) 904x feature numbers 84xx

Each licensed function indicator feature selected on a 533x base unit enables that function at the system level. These features are not selected on any attached 533x expansion units.

Authorization

The extent of IBM authorization for the use of a licensed function on a 533x system is established by acquiring 904x function authorization models and feature numbers for the 533x base unit.

Licensed function Function authorization
Base Function (BF) 904x Model FF8 feature number 8151-8160
Copy Services (CS) 904x Model FF8 feature number 8250-8260
z-synergy Services (zsS) 904x Model FF8 feature number 8350-8360
Copy Services Manager on HMC (CSM on HMC) 904x Model LF8 feature number 8450-8460

Each function authorization acquired for a 533x base unit establishes the authorization level for the 533x system. For example, a system with models 985 and 85E expansion units requires only one Base Function (BF) (904x Model FF8 feature numbers 8xxx) function authorization. The authorization levels established by acquiring one or more function authorizations for the Models 98x must also cover the physical capacity of the attached Model 8xE 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 904x system's total authorization level for a given licensed function is the sum of the units (TB) associated with all the acquired feature numbers.

The function authorization are based on the capacity range and tier as shown below:

Tier Min. (TB) Max. (TB) Tier TB granularity Feature Quantity (max.) Range delta (TB) Feature number
1 1 100 10 10 100 8x51
2 101 250 15 10 150 8x52
3 251 500 25 10 250 8x53
4 501 1250 75 10 750 8x54
5 1251 3000 175 10 1750 8x55
6 3001 6000 300 10 3000 8x56
7 6001 10000* 500 8 4000 8x60

* The maximum (TB) for Copy Services Manager on HMC is 100,000

Management

Licensed functions are managed using the DSFA application.

To access DSFA, you will be required to enter information about your 533x machine. You can find this information on the Storage Unit General Properties page in the IBM DS8000 Storage Manager application.

Management activities include:

  • Selection of a license scope
  • Assignment of a license value
  • Deactivation of a licensed function

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.

  • Fixed Block (FB): This function can be used only with data from Fibre Channel-attached servers.
  • Count Key Data (CKD): The function can be used only with data from FICON-attached servers.
  • Both FB and CKD (ALL): The function can be used with data from all attached servers.

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

Licensed function License scope options
Base Function (BF) FB, ALL
Copy Services (CS) FB, ALL
z-synergy Services (zsS) CKD
Copy Services Manager on HMC (CSM on HMC) FB, ALL

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 concurrent 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 Models 98x, 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 non-zero value. A new feature activation code will be generated and when installed into the machine, the function will be activated. Reactivation is a concurrent 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 533x system. The feature activation codes are made available by IBM and are obtained using the DSFA application.

Enforcement

The 533x 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.

Sub-capacity licensing requires capacity monitoring and remote connection.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

Each DS8000 series Function Authorization (IBM 904x) establishes the extent of IBM authorization for one or more licensed functions acquired for an IBM DS8880 (IBM 533x). Each 904x function authorization is applicable only for the specific 533x machine (by serial number) for which it was acquired and is not transferable to another serial numbered 533x machine.

Each 904x function authorization requires a corequisite licensed function indicator feature number on the 533x machine for which it was acquired:

Licensed function IBM 533x Indicator Feature number IBM 904x Function Authorization Models and feature numbers
Base Function (BF) 81xx Model FF8 feature number 8151-8160
Copy Services (CS) 82xx Model FF8 feature number 8250-8260
z-synergy Services (zsS) 83xx Model FF8 feature number 8350-8360
Copy Services Manager on HMC (CSM on HMC) 84xx 904x Model LF8 feature number 8450-8460
Base Function (BF)

A minimum of 10 TB unit Base Function (BF) license is required on every 533x base unit (Model 98x). The extent of IBM authorization acquired through the 904x Model FF8 feature numbers must cover the physical capacity for each acquired drive set of the 533x system, where system is defined as the base unit and all physically attached expansion units.

Feature Description Corequisite
8151 BF - Up to 100 TB capacity Model FF8 feature #8151
8152 BF - 100.1 TB to 250 TB capacity Model FF8 feature #8152
8153 BF - 250.1 TB to 500 TB capacity Model FF8 feature #8153
8154 BF - 500.1 TB to 1250 TB capacity Model FF8 feature #8154
8155 BF - 1250.1 TB to 3000 TB capacity Model FF8 feature #8155
8156 BF - 3000.1 TB to 6000 TB capacity Model FF8 feature #8156
8160 BF - 6000.1 TB to 10000 TB Model FF8 feature #8160

The physical capacity for base function licenses (Model FF8 feature numbers 8151-8160) are required. This is required for the base function and for a valid system configuration.

The number of TB unit base function license feature activation code can be retrieved and activated by using the DSFA application. The capacity of the storage system for base function 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 base function license has not been acquired and activated on the machine, disk drives installed within the 533x system cannot be logically configured for use. Upon activation of the base function, 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 904x Model FF8 feature numbers. Otherwise, the additional disk drives cannot be logically configured for use.

Limitations
  • Conversion between machine types is not supported.
  • The intermix of models and features between machine types is not supported. For example, intermixing of machine type 9046 Model FF8 and machine type 9048 Model FF8 is not supported.
  • The amount of physical capacity within a 533x system that can be logically configured for use will be enforced by the 533x Licensed Machine Code to maintain compliance with the extent of IBM authorization established for licensed functions activated on the machine. The 533x Licensed Machine Code will not allow the logical configuration of physical capacity beyond the extent of IBM authorization.
  • A lateral change or reduction in the license scope is a disruptive activity and requires a machine IML (Model 98x).
    • A lateral change is defined as changing the license scope from FB to CKD or from CKD to FB.
    • A reduction is defined as changing the license scope from ALL to FB or from ALL to CKD.
    • The deactivation of an activated licensed function occurs at the next machine IML (Model 98x).

Planning information

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:

  • The required authorization level depends upon the license scope:
    • If the license scope is FB, the authorization level must be equal to or greater than the total amount of physical capacity within the system that will be logically configured as FB.
    • If the license scope is CKD, the authorization level must be equal to or greater than the total amount of physical capacity within the system that will be logically configured as CKD.
    • If the license scope is ALL, the authorization level must be equal to or greater than the total system physical capacity.
  • The required authorization level stated above could be applicable to the base function license only.
  • Refer to IBM DS8880 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC27-8525) for physical capacity calculation guidelines.

Licensed function management and activation

Licensed function management and activation activities responsibilities:

  • Management refers to use of the DSFA application to select the license scope and assign the license value.
  • Activation refers to the retrieval and installation of the feature activation code into the 533x system. The feature activation code is made available by IBM and obtained using the DSFA application.

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 533x machine. You can find this information on the Storage Unit General Properties page in the IBM DS8000 Storage Manager application.

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.

Direct customer support

Direct customer support for the DS8000 series is provided by IBM Operational Support Services - Support Line. This fee service can enhance your productivity by providing voice and electronic access into the IBM support organization. IBM Operational Support Services - Support Line will help answer questions pertaining to product and feature usage (how to), configuration, and product compatibility for eligible products. For a list of supported products, go to the Support Line website.

For more information on services, call 800-IBM-4YOU (426-4968).
