  • Installed: The software is available.
  • Installed (Disabled): Installation is complete, but the license is set to Disabled. This status might appear if an error occurs after you install software. Resolve the error and enable the license. This status also appears when the license key of this software is installed but the license key of the prerequisite software has expired.
  • Not Installed: The software is not installed.
  • Not Enough License: Installation is complete, but the license capacity is insufficient.
  • Grace Period: The licensed capacity is insufficient because LDEVs are added, or copy pairs are created, or pool volumes are added. The license expires in 30 days. Please purchase the licenses before the license key expires.
  • Expired: The term has already expired for the temporary key. When the status is Expired, you cannot re-install the temporary key.

This field is blank if no license keys are installed.

License Capacity (TB)
  • Permitted: The window displays the permitted volume capacity for this software in integers. If no upper limit value is set for the capacity, "Unlimited" is displayed. This field is blank if no license is installed.
  • Used: This is the capacity of the volumes used by the software. Up to the second decimal place is displayed. The third decimal place is rounded up. If the license capacity type is other than Used, a hyphen (-) is displayed. If no license isL installed, a blank is displayed.

Licensed capacity displayed is found from calculations based on the following:

1 KB= 1,024 bytes, 1 MB = 1,024 KB, 1 GB = 1,024 MB, 1 TB= 1,024 GB

Term (Days) Number of days remaining before the expiration of a temporary key, an emergency key, or a term key

After the temporary key has expired, the column shows the number of days that remain before you can reinstall the temporary key. If there is no limit on validity, a hyphen (-) is displayed. This field is blank if no license is installed.
