Description

All N series licensed functions are enabled, authorized, and activated at the 2863, 2864, 2865, 2866, 2867, 2878, or 2869 system level. The following terms are defined in the context of licensed functions.

286x system refers to the following 286x storage controller or gateway:

  • A 2863 storage controller unit refers to the Model A10 or A20.
  • A 2864 storage controller unit refers to the Model A10 or A20.
  • A 2864 gateway unit refers to the Model G10 or G20.
  • A 2865 storage controller unit refers to the Model A10 or A20.
  • A 2865 gateway unit refers to the Model G10 or G20.
  • A 2866 storage controller unit refers to the Model A10 or A20.
  • A 2866 gateway unit refers to the Model G10 or G20.
  • A 2867 storage controller unit refers to the Model A10 or A20.
  • A 2867 gateway unit refers to the Model G10 or G20.
  • A 2868 storage controller unit refers to the Model A10 or A20.
  • A 2868 gateway unit refers to the Model G10 or G20.
  • A 2869 storage controller unit refers to the Model A10 or A20.
  • A 2869 gateway unit refers to the Model G10 or G20.
  • A 286x unit and N series unit refer to any of the units.

Enablement refers to the selection of a 2863, 2864, 2865, 2866, 2867, 2868, or 2869 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 number to establish authorization for use of a licensed function.

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

Enablement: Each licensed function is enabled for a N series system through the selection of the appropriate licensed function indicator feature number on the 286x storage controller unit or on the 286x gateway unit.

Each licensed function indicator feature selected on a 286x gateway unit enables that function at the system level. These features are not selected on any attached expansion units.

Authorization: Authorization for the use of a licensed function on an N series system is established by acquiring 2870 function authorization feature numbers for the N series unit.

Each function authorization acquired for a 286x unit establishes the authorization level for the N series system. For example, a 2866 system with a Model G20 requires only one Data ONTAP (2870 Model 666 #7750) function authorization.

When 2870 function authorization feature numbers are initially acquired with a 286x system (plant order), your 2870 function authorization will be assigned an IBM serial number. If you want to acquire additional function authorizations for that system, function authorization feature numbers must be ordered against the 2870 serial number associated with that system.

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

Activation: Licensed functions are activated by the installation of activation codes into the N series 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.

Technical information

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

The N series function authorization (IBM 2870) establishes authorization for the use of licensed functions acquired for an IBM TotalStorage® N series hardware machine. 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 is was acquired.

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

Limitations: Current license terms for the machine code, provided with this product, prohibit transfer of the machine code without approval from Network Appliance.

Planning information

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.
