How to upgrade from DEMO keys to permanent keys in VERITAS Cluster Server (VCS) 2.0
TAG_B 2001/10/04 19:07:29 VCS:11285:Licensing:You have 10 day(s) left in your evaluation period
The vxlicense -c command cannot be used to enter
permanent keys for VCS 2.0. The following illustrates the procedure to enter a
permanent key if a DEMO key is installed during "installvcs".
1. CD to the VCS installation directory in the supplied
CD or to the local download directory (if it was downloaded from ftp
2. Run licensevcs:
Enter the license key for node-1:
<enter_the_permanent_key_here>, applying the license key to all systems
in the cluster.
VCS Licensing Completed Successfully.
NOTE: This is run only on one node in the cluster and
not all the nodes.
3. Kill and restart HAD. This is how to do so:
node-2# hastop -all
node-1 # hastart
4. A reboot of the cluster nodes is not necessary once
the license upgrade is complete.
Licensevcs can be run on a cluster node when VCS
is running or down. However, VCS cannot be brought up unless a valid key is in
place. Messages similar to "TAG_B 2001/09/27 12:43:53 VCS:52541:Licensing:This
node's license type does not match the cluster type (Remote Build:
xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxx)" will appear.
This can be resolved by entering a valid key on any of
the cluster nodes before starting VCS.
