All DS8000 series 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:

"242x system" refers to the 242x base unit and all physically attached 242x expansion units:

  • A 242x base unit refers to the Model 931, 932, and 9B2.
  • A 242x expansion unit refers to the Model 92E and 9AE.

"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.

Licensed function         Licensed function indicator
 
Operating environment     242x feature numbers 70xx and 0700
FICON/ESCON attachment    242x feature numbers 7090 and 0702
Point in time copy        242x feature numbers 72xx and 0720
Metro/Global mirror       242x feature numbers 74xx and 0742
Metro mirror              242x feature numbers 74xx and 0744
Global mirror             242x feature numbers 74xx and 0746
Metro mirror add on       242x feature numbers 75xx and 0754
Global mirror add on      242x feature numbers 75xx and 0756
Remote mirror for z/OS    242x feature numbers 76xx and 0760
Parallel access volumes   242x feature numbers 78xx and 0780
HyperPAV                  242x feature numbers 7899 and 0782

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:

Licensed function         Function authorization
 
Operating environment     239x Model LFA feature number 70xx
FICON/ESCON attachment    239x Model LFA feature number 7090
Point in time copy        239x Model LFA feature number 72xx
Metro/Global mirror       239x Model LFA feature number 74xx
Metro mirror              239x Model LFA feature number 74xx
Global mirror             239x Model LFA feature number 74xx
Metro mirror add on       239x Model LFA feature number 75xx
Global mirror add on      239x Model LFA feature number 75xx
Remote mirror for z/OS    239x Model LFA feature number 76xx
Parallel access volumes   239x Model LFA feature number 78xx
HyperPAV                  239x Model LFA feature number 7899

Each Function Authorization acquired for a 242x base unit establishes the authorization level for the 242x system. For example, a system with a Model 932 and two Model 92E expansion units requires only one operating environment (239x Model LFA feature numbers 70xx) Function Authorization. Therefore, the authorization levels established by acquiring one or more Function Authorizations for the Model 932 must also cover the physical capacity of the attached Model 92E expansion units.

Each Function Authorization acquired for the Model 9B2 establishes the authorization level for all System Storage LPARs within the machine. For example, a Model 9B2 with two System Storage LPARs requires only one operating environment (239x Model LFA feature numbers 70xx) Function Authorization. However, licensed functions are managed and activated at the System Storage LPAR level; therefore, the total authorization level established by acquiring Function Authorizations for the Model 9B2 may not need to cover the physical capacity of the entire 242x system.

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

Management

Licensed functions are managed using the Disk Storage Feature Activation (DSFA) application at

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:

  • 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)
    • The 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.

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

Licensed function                      License scope options
 
Operating environment                  ALL
FICON/ESCON attachment                 CKD
Point in time copy                     FB, CKD, or ALL
Metro mirror                           FB, CKD, or ALL
Global mirror                          FB, CKD, or ALL
Metro mirror add on                    FB, CKD, or ALL
Global mirror add on                   FB, CKD, or ALL
Remote mirror for z/OS                 CKD
Parallel access volumes                CKD
HyperPAV                               CKD

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.

On the Model 9B2, the license scope does not need to be the same for each System Storage LPAR. For example, for the point in time copy licensed function, you can select a license scope of FB for System Storage LPAR 1 and a license scope of ALL for System Storage LPAR 2. You can also change the license scope on a System Storage LPAR basis and if the change is disruptive, you will only need to reboot the affected System Storage LPAR.

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 terabytes (TB) of physical capacity.

On the Models 931 and 932, license value assignment is an optional activity you can 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 you assign a license value of zero (0.0 TB).

On the Model 9A2, license value assignment is a required activity that you perform using the DSFA application.

On this model, the license value does not need to be the same for each System Storage LPAR. For example, if you have a 15 TB total authorization level for the point in time copy licensed function, you can assign a license value of 9.1 TB to System Storage LPAR 1 and a license value of 5.9 TB to System Storage LPAR 2.

You can also change the license value on a System Storage LPAR basis. If the change is a reduction in the license value, you may need to reboot the affected System Storage LPAR.

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 you install it into the machine, the function will be deactivated during the next IML of the machine.

You can also reactivate a deactivated licensed function by changing the license value to a non-zero value. A new feature activation code will be generated and when you install it into the machine, the function will be activated. Reactivation is a nondisruptive activity.

When you deactivate a licensed function using the DSFA application, the installed Function Authorization feature numbers remain on the machine record. This means that you do not need to reacquire your Function Authorization feature numbers if you want 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. For each storage type, you will be allowed to logically configure physical capacity (that is, disk drives) only up to the extent of your authorization level for that storage type. If you have multiple licensed functions with the same license scope, the extent of IBM authorization is defined by the licensed function with the lowest license value.

On the Model 9B2, this enforcement is done on a System Storage LPAR level.

For a 242x machine with Standby CoD disk drives (#2xx7 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.

Technical information

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 System Storage™ DS8000 series (IBM 242x). Each 239x Function Authorization is applicable only for the specific 242x (by serial number) for which it was acquired and is not transferable to another serial numbered 242x.

Each 239x Function Authorization requires a corequisite licensed function indicator feature number on the 242x for which is was acquired:

Operating environment: An operating environment license is required on every 242x base unit (Models 931, 932, and 9B2). The extent of IBM authorization acquired through the 239x Model LFA feature numbers must cover the physical capacity of the 242x system, where system is defined as the base unit and all physically attached expansion units (excluding Standby CoD capacity).

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 (#2xx7 features), 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.

Limitations

  • Conversions between machine types is not supported.
  • The intermix of models and features between machine types (M/T) is not supported (that is, intermix of M/T 2396 Model LFA and a M/T 2398 Model LFA is not supported).
  • The amount of physical capacity within a 242x system that can be logically configured for use will be enforced by the 242x Licensed Machine Code to maintain compliance with the extent of IBM authorization established for licensed functions activated on the machine. The 242x Licensed Machine Code will not allow the logical configuration of physical capacity beyond the extent of IBM authorization (except when activating Standby CoD capacity).
  • The deactivation of an activated licensed function, or a lateral change or reduction in the license scope, is a disruptive activity and requires a machine IML (Model 931 and Model 932) or reboot of the affected System Storage LPAR (Model 9B2).
    • 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.

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.
  • For the Model 9B2, the required authorization level depends not only upon the license scope, but also the physical capacity of the System Storage LPARs that you want to activate the function on. For example, if you want to:
    • Activate a licensed function on only System Storage LPAR 1 with a license scope of FB:
      • The authorization level must be equal to or greater than the total amount of physical capacity within System Storage LPAR 1 that will be logically configured as FB.
    • Activate a licensed function on System Storage LPAR 1 and LPAR 2, both with a license scope of CKD:
      • The authorization level must be equal to or greater than the total amount of physical capacity within both System Storage LPAR 1 and LPAR 2 that will be logically configured as CKD.
    • Activate a licensed function on System Storage LPAR 1 with a license scope of FB and on LPAR 2 with a license scope of ALL:
      • The authorization level must be equal to or greater than the total amount of physical capacity within System Storage LPAR 1 that will be logically configured as FB and the total physical capacity within LPAR 2.
  • You can exclude Standby CoD disk drives (#2xx7 features) from your authorization level calculation. However, you must increase your authorization levels as Standby CoD disk drives are activated (logically configured for use).
  • Refer to the IBM System Storage DS8000 Introduction and Planning Guide (GC35-0515) for physical capacity calculation guidelines.

Licensed function management and activation: You are responsible for licensed function management and activation activities:

  • Management refers to use of the Disk Storage Feature Activation (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 242x 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 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

Cable orders: No cables are required.
