All DS8000 series licensed functions are enabled, authorized, managed, activated, and enforced based upon the physical capacity contained in a 2107 system. In the context of licensed functions, these terms are defined as follows:

  • "2107 system" refers to the 2107 base unit and all physically attached 2107 expansion units:
    • A 2107 base unit refers to the Models 921, 922, 931, 932, 9A2, and 9B2.
    • A 2107 expansion unit refers to the Model 92E or 9AE.
  • "Enablement" refers to the selection of a 2107 licensed function indicator feature number to technically activate the associated licensed function.
  • "Authorization" refers to the acquisition of a DS8000 Series Function Authorization (IBM 2244) 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 2107 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 2107's Licensed Machine Code to maintain compliance with established IBM authorization levels.

Enablement

Each licensed function is enabled for a 2107 system through the selection of the appropriate licensed function indicator feature number on the 2107 base unit.

Each licensed function indicator feature selected on a 2107 base unit enables that function at the system level. These features are not selected on any attached 2107 expansion units.

Authorization

The extent of IBM authorization for the use of a licensed function on a 2107 system is established by acquiring 2244 function authorization models and feature numbers for the 2107 base unit:

2107 Models 92X/9AX

Licensed function        Function authorization
 
Operating environment    2244 Model OEL feature number 70xx
Point in time copy       2244 Model PTC feature number 72xx
Metro/Global Mirror      2244 Model RMC feature number 74xx
Remote mirror and copy   2244 Model RMC feature number 74xx
Remote mirror for z/OS   2244 Model RMZ feature number 76xx
Parallel access volumes  2244 Model PAV feature number 78xx

2107 Models 93X/9BX

Licensed function        Function authorization
 
Operating environment    2244 Model OEL feature numbers 70xx
FICON/ESCON Attachment   2244 Model OEL feature number  7090
Point in time copy       2244 Model PTC feature numbers 72xx
Metro/Global Mirror      2244 Model RMC feature numbers 74xx
Metro Mirror             2244 Model RMC feature numbers 74xx
Global Mirror            2244 Model RMC feature numbers 74xx
Metro Mirror Add         2244 Model RMC feature numbers 75xx
Global Mirror Add        2244 Model RMC feature numbers 75xx
Remote mirror for z/OS   2244 Model RMZ feature numbers 76xx
Parallel access volumes  2244 Model PAV feature numbers 78xx

Each function authorization acquired for a 2107 base unit establishes the authorization level for the 2107 system. For example, a system with a Model 922/932 and two Model 92E expansion units requires only one operating environment (2244 Model OEL) function authorization. Therefore, the authorization levels established by acquiring one or more function authorizations for the Model 922/932 must also cover the physical capacity of the attached Model 92E expansion units.

Each function authorization acquired for the Models 9A2 and 9B2 establishes the authorization level for all Storage System LPARs within the machine. For example, a Model 9A2/9B2 with two Storage System LPARs requires only one operating environment (2244 Model OEL) function authorization. However, licensed functions are managed and activated at the Storage System LPAR level; therefore, the total authorization level established by acquiring function authorizations for the Model 9A2/9B2 may not need to cover the physical capacity of the entire 2107 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 2107 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 2107 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.

2107 Models 92X/9AX

Licensed function                      License scope options
 
Operating environment                  ALL
Point in time copy                     FB, CKD, or 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 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 9A2/9B2, the license scope does not need to be the same for each Storage System LPAR. For example, for the point in time copy licensed function, you can select a license scope of FB for Storage System LPAR 1 and a license scope of ALL for Storage System LPAR 2. You can also change the license scope on a Storage System LPAR basis and if the change is disruptive, you will only need to reboot the affected Storage System 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 921, 922, 931, and 932, license value assignment is an optional activity you can perform it 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 Models 9A2 and 9B2, license value assignment is a required activity that you perform using the DSFA application.

On these models, the license value does not need to be the same for each Storage System 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 Storage System LPAR 1 and a license value of 5.9 TB to Storage System LPAR 2.

You can also change the license value on a Storage System LPAR basis. If the change is a reduction in the license value, you may need to reboot the affected Storage System 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 2107 system. The feature activation codes are made available by IBM and are obtained using the DSFA application.

Enforcement

The 2107 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 9A2/9B2, this enforcement is done on a Storage System LPAR level.

For a 2107 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 2244) establishes the extent of IBM authorization for one or more licensed functions acquired for an IBM System Storage™ DS8000 series (IBM 2107). Each 2244 function authorization is applicable only for the specific 2107 (by serial number) for which it was acquired and is not transferable to another serial numbered 2107.

Each 2244 function authorization requires a corequisite licensed function indicator feature number on the 2107 for which it was acquired:

Operating environment: An operating environment license is required on every 2107 base unit (Models 921, 922, 931, 932, 9A2, and 9B2.) The extent of IBM authorization acquired through the 2244 Model OEL feature numbers must cover the physical capacity of the 2107 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 2107 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 2244 Model OEL feature numbers. Otherwise, the additional disk drives cannot be logically configured for use.

For a 2107 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.

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 Models 9A2/9B2, the required authorization level depends not only upon the license scope, but also the physical capacity of the Storage System LPARs that you want to activate the function on. For example, if you want to:
    • Activate a licensed function on only Storage System 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 Storage System LPAR 1 that will be logically configured as FB.
    • Activate a licensed function on Storage System 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 Storage System LPAR 1 and LPAR 2 that will be logically configured as CKD.
    • Activate a licensed function on Storage System 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 Storage System 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 2107 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 2107 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.

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.
