Capacity licensing includes two types of license enablers.
1. NetWorker Datazone Enabler — You must license each installation of NetWorker server software with a NetWorker Datazone Enabler. This enabler, when installed on the NetWorker server, enables the software for capacity licensing. Without it, the NetWorker datazone remains under the traditional licensing model. One NetWorker Datazone Enabler is required for each NetWorker server or datazone.
2. Tiered Capacity Entitlement — You must apply the appropriate number of Tiered Capacity Entitlement License enablers for each NetWorker server or datazone to protect up to the amount of purchased licensed source terabytes. The Tiered Capacity Entitlement License Enabler is available in 1 TB and 10 TB increments.
An update enabler is necessary to move from an existing major NetWorker release to a newer major NetWorker release, for example, from NetWorker 8.1 to NetWorker 8.2.
Updating within a minor release, for example, from NetWorker 8.1 SP1 to NetWorker 8.1 SP2, does not require an update enabler.
With NetWorker 8.1 and later, if an update enabler is required, the NetWorker software automatically adds the required update enabler code to its configuration. The update enabler expires after 45 days. You must contact EMC Licensing within 45 days to permanently authorize the update enabler.
NOTICE If the auth (authorization) code for the update enabler code is not applied within 45 days, the NetWorker server software will be disabled. Typing the auth code enables the software even if the update enabler code has expired.
