installvcs script handles most license key validations. However, if you install a VCS key outside of
vxlicinst, for example), you can validate the key using the procedure described below.
vxlicinstcommand handles some of the basic validations:
node lock: Ensures that you are installing a node-locked key on the correct system
demo hard end date: Ensures that you are not installing an expired demo key
vxlicrepcommand to make sure a VCS key is installed on the system. The output of the command resembles:
