Table 10-3 Preparations for license application



GTS permission for the ESDP (applicable to Huawei service engineers)

Users who have the GTS permission can apply for licenses in Applying for a License in Entitlement Activation Mode. If you do not have the GTS permission, click Permission Application in the left navigation tree of the ESDP home page and complete the permission application.

ASP or Guest permission for the ESDP (applicable to Huawei partners or customers)

Users who have the ASP or Guest permission can apply for licenses in Applying for a License in Password Activation Mode. Click Register Now on the ESDP home page and fill in related registration information. Then you are granted the ASP or Guest permission.

Equipment Serial Number (ESN)

An ESN is a unique character string that identifies a device. It ensures that software is licensed to the specified device. You can obtain an ESN in the following ways:

  • View the ESN on the information plate.
  • On the navigation bar of the DeviceManager, click Home. In the function pane, view SN in the Basic Information area.
  • Log in to the command-line interface (CLI). Then, run the show system general command and view SN.

For details, see Querying the ESN on the Information Plate, Querying the ESN on DeviceManager, and Querying the ESN on the CLI.


For a multi-controller storage system that contains two or more controller enclosures, the ESN of controller enclosure 0 is used as the ESN of the storage system. The ESN of the multi-controller storage system queried on DeviceManager or CLI through the management network port of any controller enclosure is always the ESN of controller enclosure 0. You are advised to use DeviceManager or CLI to query the ESN. If you want to query the ESN on the information plate, obtain the position of controller enclosure 0 on the system networking diagram used for controller expansion and then check the ESN on the information plate of controller enclosure 0.


The license file covers all features purchased by the customer.

Querying the ESN on the Information Plate

The information plate is located on the right side of the front panel of a controller enclosure, as shown in Figure 10-10, Figure 10-11, and Figure 10-12. Pull out the information plate from the controller enclosure to query the device information.
