Alarm Information
Handling Process

l           The VSM license file naming format is: ONxxxxxxx.dat.

l           One license file corresponds to the equipment serial number (ESN) in an NMS computer and can be used only on the corresponding computer.

l           The number of ESNs is the same as the number of network interfaces on the VSM server.

The VSM license is valid as long as it is bound to any of the server ESNs. To avoid applying for a new license due to replacing certain network interface cards (NICs), save all the ESNs to ensure proper use of the VSM license.

l           Do not make any change to the license file. Otherwise, the license becomes invalid.

l           The license folder contains only one license file in the server/etc/conf/license directory of the VSM.

l           During the update of the VSM license file, replacing the formal VSM license file with the temporary one is prohibited; otherwise, the update of the VSM license file fails.

l           The license control items vary according to the versions of the VSM. When you fill in the application form, use the template that matches the intended version of the VSM.

l           The licenses of different R versions of the VSM are incompatible. For example, the license of V100R001C02 cannot be used by V100R002.
