You only need to import a license file for the VTL3500's server. Value-added features and capacity expansion of the VTL6000 are license controlled, and you need to import a license file respectively for the VTL6000's server and storage units.

To import a license file for the server of the VTL3500 or the VTL6000, perform the following operations:

1.  In the navigation tree of the VTL Console, right-click the VTL server name and choose License from the shortcut menu.

2.  Click Register and select the offline registration method.

3.  Click Next.

4.  On the right of step 1 in the Offline Registration dialog box, click the … button. The Saved Path dialog box is displayed. The system automatically generates a file and uses the license key as the file name.

NOTE:
The name of a .dat file can contain only letters and numbers.

5.  Click Open to return to the Offline Registration dialog box.

6.  Click Save and then OK.

7.  Email the registration file to license@huawei.com. Huawei will reply your email with a registration activation file (.sig).

8.  Save the registration activation file (.sig) to a local disk of the VTL Console computer.

9.  On the right of step 4 in the Offline Registration dialog box, click the … button. Select the registration activation file.

10.  Click Open to return to the Offline Registration dialog box.

11.  Click Send to start the registration.
