Usage Guidelines

  • A license file can activate a value-added function for the storage system. To enable a value-added function, you must purchase and import a license file for the function.
  • This command can import license only from an FTP server or SFTP server connecting to the storage system.

Prerequisites for using this command:

  • The FTP server or SFTP server is accessible to the storage system.
  • The FTP service or SFTP service has been started on the server.
  • The license file to be imported must be valid for the desired value-added function, because this command will override the existing license file and an incorrect license file can fail the desired function.
  • If the storage system serves as a server in the file transfer with external systems, it supports the SFTP service only. If the storage system serves as a client, it supports both the FTP and SFTP services.


To import a license file which name is "license.dat", where the IP address of the FTP server for storing the license file is "", the user name for accessing the FTP server is "admin", and the user's password is "123456", run the following command:.

admin:/>import license ip= user=admin password=****** license_path=license.dat protocol=FTP 
WARNING: You are about to import a license file. This operation will overwrite the previous license file. Importing an incorrect license file will cause that some features are unavailable.
