All N6270 licensed functions are enabled, authorized, and activated at the 2858 system level. The following terms are defined in the context of licensed functions.

2858 system refers to the 2858 Model C22, Model E12, and Model E22.

Enablement refers to the selection of a 2858 licensed function indicator feature number to technically activate a licensed function.

Authorization refers to an acquisition of an N series function authorization (IBM 2870) feature to establish authorization for use of a licensed function.

Activation refers to the installation of an activation code into the 2858 system. The activation code is made available by IBM.

Enablement: Each licensed function is enabled for a 2858 system when you select the appropriate licensed function indicator feature on the 2858 system. These features cannot be selected on any attached expansion units.

Authorization: Authorization for the use of a licensed function on a 2858 system is established when you acquire 2870 function authorization feature numbers for the 2858 system.

Each function authorization that you acquire for a 2858 system establishes the authorization level for the 2858 system. For example, a 2858 system with a Model C22 requires only one Data ONTAP (2870 Model 58F #5810) function authorization.

When you initially acquire 2870 function authorization feature numbers with a 2858 system (plant order), your 2870 function authorization is assigned an IBM serial number. To acquire additional function authorizations for that system, you must order function authorization features using the 2870 serial number associated with that system.

Each system can have only one associated 2870 function authorization serial number.

Activation: Licensed functions are activated when you install activation codes into the 2858 system. The activation codes are made available by IBM.

The installation of activation codes is a client responsibility; however, IBM may choose to factory-install the activation codes on new machine orders.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

The N series function authorization (IBM 2870) establishes authorization for the use of licensed functions acquired for IBM System Storage N series hardware. Each 2870 function authorization is applicable only for the specific N series hardware machine (by serial number) for which it was acquired and is not transferable to another serial-numbered N series hardware machine.

Each 2870 function authorization feature number requires a corequisite licensed function indicator feature number on the N series hardware machine for which it was acquired.

Current license terms for the machine code provided with this product prohibit transfer of the machine code without approval from NetApp.
