***Total Netapp Newbie***
I've bought from different sellers on a popular auction site a FAS3050, a DS14MK2 and five 146 Gb disks. I have configured the disks for ownership by the FAS. I intend to configure fibre channel and connect to my two VMWare servers. I notice that I have no licenses installed.
Will I be able to use ths setup or will I need to get licenses. Do I just have pile of tin at the moment?
You won't be able to start the FCP service without a license. In theory iSCSI is a free license but I don't think you would be able to get it without a support contract.
Perhaps the seller of the filer may have some licenses linked with the serial number they could provide you.
