NOTICE:
    Before upgrading a license file, ensure that the version of the controller software is the same as that of the license file after it is upgraded. If the version of the controller software is different from that of the license file, run the upgradesys command to upgrade the version of the controller software. For details, see the OceanStor XXXX Storage System Command Reference. XXXX indicates a model of a product.
    Before combining license files, ensure that customer names, versions, and product models of the license files are the same. If license file versions are different, upgrade license files to the target version.

The technical support personnel generate a license file after the upgrade or combination and sent the license file to you by email. Under normal conditions, the upgrade or combination takes about 30 minutes.
