Re: Download EMC PowerPath/VE

Just a slight update with regard to creating the Service Request in step 3.  As of December 8, 2012, Service Requests need to be submitted via https://support.emc.com/.  Powerlink will provide a redirect link when following the above instructions.  Thanks again for the great post.

Regards,

Chris

Re: Download EMC PowerPath/VE

I believe that there is only 1 way to aquire powerpath/ve licenses.  Has EMC moved towards served or unserved licences?

Re: Download EMC PowerPath/VE

Hi Raph - with the release of PPVE 5.8 we now support both served and unserved temporary licenses.

Do this answer your question?

Hi Bob,

Is the default served or unserved in Channe Express/Direct Express?  What is the preferred method by EMC?

Re: Download EMC PowerPath/VE

Hi Raph - we removed the choice of served vs. unserved from CxP/DxP - it is now a decision that is made at time of license activation, not ordering.

EMC recommends served licenses for environments that change frequently or have more that 5 hosts to manage. We recently introduced a new license server packaging in a virtual appliance that reduces the number of steps needed to deploy a license server.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

Bob
