how to generate license activation on the cli

Hi all, i try to generate an license activation file on the cli. The install guide for DLm8500 says:

Generate a license on the cluster, including the number of nodes, the OneFS base license, and the other necessary feature.

 

isi license generate --include SMARTLOCK,SMARTQUOTAS,ONEFS,SMARTDEDUPE,SYNCIQ --file=/ifs/isi01_activation.xml

 

What i´m not understand is, where do i put in the number of nodes? Is it necessary? Why is the activation file including all featureCode with the value of 1? Is the way i generate the file correct?

(for testing i´m working on an virualized Isilon cluster)

Hope, someone can help me.

Kind regads

Hi,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, that looks correct, page 344 https://dell.to/3qfDl90 are you getting errors when you run it?

 

Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

Hi Josh,

thanks for your reply. 

Ok, what confusing me is, that there is no hint about the node count.Also confusing me is the output. If i have a look inside the generated file:

The code was repeated for 4 time. It´s just a part... 

There are more features as i have choosen and each is with a value of one. I'm not sure if that's correct.

I don’t see anything about node count on that current version. Do you have more than one node? Since you are on virtualized isilion can you take a snapshot, test the license and roll it back if it doesn’t give you or gives you all of the features when you apply it?

@KReinhard ,

The nodes serial are in the activation xml, so create activation file after all nodes are joined to cluster. On a vm cluster, just use evaluation license.

isi license generate --only=
CLOUDPOOLS HDFS SMARTCONNECT_ADVANCED SMARTLOCK SMARTQUOTAS SWIFT
HARDENING ONEFS SMARTDEDUPE SMARTPOOLS SNAPSHOTIQ SYNCIQ

isi license add --evaluation HDFS,ONEFS,SMARTCONNECT_ADVANCED,SMARTDEDUPE,SMARTQUOTAS,SMARTPOOLS,SNAPSHOTIQ,SYNCIQ
