Overview

Every component in the system (MediaAgents, libraries, and agents), and certain CommCell features, require a product license or feature license for use.

During the installation of the CommServe, the install program prompts for the location of the license file. From this file, the license information for the entire CommCell is updated. The following types of licenses are available:

Evaluation License A temporary license provided in the software installation discs that can be used to initially install a CommCell and use CommCell features. You can continue to use the software for evaluation purposes for the duration of this license.
Permanent License A permanent license used for new CommCell installations and CommCell features that require this type of license for use. Permanent licenses are applied to every configured entity within the CommCell.

Evaluation and permanent licenses for the same license type can co-exist within the same CommCell. When components are initially installed, the software will first consume any available permanent licenses before consuming evaluation licenses. The License Summary Report and License Administration dialog box will show the numbers of evaluation and permanent licenses available and consumed within the CommCell. See View All Licenses for step-by-step instructions.

 

Permanent License Expiration

When a permanent license for the CommServe is bought or activated, depending on the type of license purchased, an expiry date will be set by your software provider. If necessary, the expiry date for a permanent CommServe license can be extended by purchasing new licenses. Contact your software provider for more information.

The License Administration dialog box provides information on the CommServe expiry date. See View the License Expiry Date for the CommServe for step-by-step instructions.

 

Evaluation License Expiration

For evaluation licenses, the expiration clock begins from the moment the license is consumed, not the time the CommServe is installed or the evaluation license is generated. The expiration period for evaluation licenses is usually 60 days following the date the license was consumed, although the expiration period may vary depending on the license purchased.

Evaluation licenses that were consumed on different days will have different expiration dates. For example, a license consumed on the 20th of October will expire on the 19th of December, whereas a license consumed on the 30th of October will expire on the 29th of December.

The License Administration dialog box provides two methods of viewing evaluation license usage:

 

Permanent License Release

Permanent licenses can be released when any of the following operations are performed:

When a permanent license is released, the license will remain available for use at a later time should the component be reinstalled or reconfigured.

 

Licensing and Disaster Recovery

The CommServe license can have two IP addresses, a primary IP address for a CommServe host computer, and an IP address for a CommServe hosted in the disaster recovery site. This provides the system with the capability to automatically identify the appropriate CommServe when the CommServe meta data is restored in the disaster recovery site. See Planning for CommCell Disaster Recovery Using a Hot-Site for an overview of planning for disaster recovery.

Contact your software provider to obtain a copy of the Dual IP License before building the disaster recovery site.

 


License Administration

The License Administration dialog box in the CommCell Console allows you to examine and update the existing licenses in your entire CommCell. When a component is installed or uninstalled, the license type count is updated to reflect the new configuration. Note that the CommServe component does not contain a separate license type and count; it is automatically included in the CommCell configuration. This dialog box displays:

 

Activate Permanent Licenses

Permanent licenses can be activated from the License Administration dialog box. Licenses must be activated in the following situations:

To obtain additional licenses, contact your software provider.

See Activate Licenses for step-by-step instructions on how to activate permanent licenses.

 

Extend the Expiry Date for CommServe Licenses

If you wish to extend the expiry date of the CommServe you must obtain a new license file and then extend the expiry date by applying the new license on the CommServe. Contact your software provider for more information.

The expiry date of the CommServe license can be extended using the License Administration dialog box. This enables all operations to continue uninterrupted beyond the expiration date. See Activate Licenses for step-by-step instructions on how to extend the expiry date of the CommServe license.

 

Convert Evaluation Licenses to Permanent Licenses

Evaluation licenses may be converted to permanent licenses using the License Administration dialog box. This enables all operations to continue uninterrupted beyond the expiration date of the evaluation license.

When converting permanent licenses for a given product or feature, all evaluation licenses of that type are automatically converted without further user intervention required as long as the number obtained is equal to or greater than the number of existing evaluation licenses.

If the total number of permanent licenses available is less than the total number of consumed evaluation licenses, you must manually convert each evaluation license individually. You may convert as many consumed evaluation licenses to permanent licenses as you wish, provided you have sufficient permanent licenses available. See Convert Evaluation Licenses to Permanent Licenses for step-by-step instructions on how to convert evaluation licenses to permanent licenses.

When an evaluation license is converted to a permanent license, the following changes can be observed in the License Administration dialog box:

To obtain additional permanent licenses, contact your software provider.

 

Validate License After Changing the CommServe IP Address

After installing the software, if you change the CommServe’s IP address, the existing CommCell license becomes invalid. This may render the software inoperable until you update the license with the new IP address. To update the license you must obtain an IP Address Change license from your software provider.

 

Anticipate License Expiration

If you have not converted the CommCell evaluation license to a permanent license, and you are concerned as to when the evaluation license will expire, you can check the expiration date from the CommCell Console as follows:

 

Respond to License Expiration

When your license expires, you may have to either purchase a new license or extend the existing license. Contact your software provider for more information.

 


What Happens When a License Expires

CommServe or Agent Licenses

The following list identifies some common problems that may be encountered when the CommServe or an Agent license expires. You can determine whether these specific problems are caused by license expiration by checking the messages in the Event Viewer or the appropriate log file as indicated in the following sections. (Log files are found in the <software installation path>\Log Files folder.)

 

Data Protection Operations Do Not Run

Check the license information of the associated agent. Data protection operations may not run if the license for the associated agent has expired. You will also see the following error messages:

Check this...

For the following:

Event Viewer Failed to initialize backup request Invalid or No license for application type <app_type> Application name: <app_name>
JobManager.log file The application license evaluation date has expired.

 

MediaAgent Will Not Restart

Check the license information of the associated MediaAgent. A MediaAgent that is installed on the same computer as the CommServe may not restart if the license for the MediaAgent has expired. You will also see the following error messages:

Check this...

For the following:

Event Viewer The application license evaluation date has expired Application name: <MediaAgent_name>
cvd.log file The application license evaluation date has expired.

 

You Cannot Perform Data Protection and Recovery Operations

All data protection and recovery operations will become unavailable when the CommServe license expires.

Certain data protection and recovery operations will become unavailable if the corresponding evaluation license for that feature or product has expired.

In this situation, you must obtain the necessary permanent license for that feature or product by contacting your software provider. You must then activate the license using the License Administration dialog box.

See Activate Licenses for step-by-step instructions on how to activate permanent licenses.

 

New Components cannot be installed

You cannot install new components in the CommCell when the CommServe license expires.
