If you want to use the default options, click Yes when asked if you want to continue. The following default options are then used for installation:

  • Installation directory: %ProgramFiles%\Veritas.
  • License key: Keyless license type. 
  • Product options: Refer to the Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions Installation and Upgrade Guide.

If you want to modify the options, perform the following tasks on each of the selected system.

Installation directory

To customize the installation directory:

  1. Click Browse and select the desired location.
  2. Click OK.

The installation directory is selected by default on the systems where the product is being upgraded.

Note: If you plan to configure the cluster for single sign-on authentication, the installation directory must contain only English characters. In case your system runs a non-English locale operating system, ensure that the installation directory contains only English characters. 

License type

  1. Select the required license type from the License key drop-down list.

    • If you select the Keyless license type, all the available product options are displayed and are selected by default. 
    • If you select User entered license key as your license type, the License Details panel appears by default. On the License Details panel, enter the license key and then click Add. You can add multiple licenses for the various product options you want to use. 
  2. The wizard validates the entered license keys and displays the relevant error if the validation fails. After the validation is complete, click OK.

Product options

  1. From the list of product options, select the options to be installed. The options differ depending on your product and environment.

    Note: To apply the selection to multiple systems, select the system for which you have selected the installation and product options and then click Apply to multiple systems.

    Refer to the Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions Installation and Upgrade Guide for more details.
