Checking the License File

Checking the License File

Remote replication is a value-added feature that requires a license file. Before configuring remote replication, ensure that its license file is valid.


On the DeviceManager interface, the feature name is displayed as HyperReplication (Remote Replication).


The capacity of the remote replication license for OceanStor 18000 series storage systems must be equal to or larger than the total capacity of LUNs equipped with this feature. However, if the total capacity of the LUNs in a storage pool equipped with this feature is larger than that of the storage pool, use the capacity of the storage pool to calculate the capacity required for the remote replication license. The following is a capacity calculation example.
