How many nods are available with DCE VM licence?

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Boris Majdandzic on 2019-09-20


When I download & activate DCE VM on server, how many licences will be available?

Guys from other company told me that they got more than 5 with just VM licence.

Hi Boris,

Although when you deploy a VM it shows 25 nodes available, when you attempt to add any more than 5, you will not be able to as noted in k-base FA176217

http://www.apc.com/us/en/faqs/FA176217

 

You must activate the VM to get more than 5 nodes and you must also activate the VM to add more node licenses, surveillance licenses, or even the modbus output license.

 

Thanks,

Steve

Hi, question is will I get 25 nods with AP94VAMACT licence?

I am offering multiple DCE systems at time, so I need to know number of available nods with just VM licence.

Hi Boris, I'm sorry if I was unclear.

If you do not activate the VM with the AP94VMACT, it will look like you can add 25 nodes but you can only add 5. Once you activate the VM, you can use the full 25 nodes. 

 

As noted in the k-base:

Cause:
The current default configuration of all StruxureWare Data Center Expert is that the system comes with a pre-installed 25 node license key. The Virtual Machine or VM version shows this same 25 node license key in the user interface however until activated, will only allow 5 nodes to be added to the system.

Resolution:
This is by design. It was done so APC did not need to add a 5 node key to just this one version.  Once activated, the rest of the nodes can be used.
