MAC ID and license keys

NAS Platform Series 5000 Hardware Reference

Part Number

The replacement server has a new MAC ID, which means that you are required to have new license keys regardless of whether you are replacing a single node or a complete cluster.

As part of the field replacement process, Hitachi Vantara recommends that you obtain temporary keys to enable quick delivery and implementation. However, any temporary keys must eventually be replaced with a permanent key. This is required for all field scenarios, except when replacing a single node in a cluster.

Note: If the scenario is a single node or an all-cluster node replacement, use the span-allow-access command to attach the storage when the MAC ID changes.
