The installvcs script handles most license key validations. However, if you install a VCS key outside of installvcs (using vxlicinst, for example), you can validate the key using the procedure described below.
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
License Key = XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX Product Name = VERITAS Cluster Server Serial number = XXXX License Type = PERMANENT OEM ID = XXXX Site License = YES Editions Product = YES Features : Platform: = Unused Version = 7.0 Tier = Tiern3 Reserved = 0 Mode = VCS Global Cluster Option = Enabled CPU_TIER = 0
Make sure the Product Name lists the name of your purchased component, for example, Cluster Server. If the command output does not return the product name, you do not have a VCS key installed.
If the output shows the License Type for a VCS key as DEMO, ensure that the Demo End Date does not display a past date.
Make sure the Mode attribute displays the correct value.
If you have purchased a license key for the Global Cluster Option, make sure its status is Enabled.
