License DCE not exceed 5 nodes

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Tinh Nguyen Manh on 2018-12-19


My DCE has license with 25 nodes, but when I add devices more than 5 devices, the system show failed message. My software version is StruxureWare Data Center Expert 7.2.6.

Please help me

Thanks

Dear Tinh Nguyen Manh,

This is a screenshot of a VM DCE appliance, its serial number is visible:

For a physical DCE appliance, the serial number is never displayed here (it is only on the label of the physical server). Therefore, because of this, you have a restriction on the discovering of only 5 nodes.

I suspect, that you are not connecting to a physical DCE appliance (the label of which you published above), but to a virtual DCE appliance. Or on the above physical DCE server, for some reason – there is a DCE virtual appliance (which is very unlikely).

If you want to have only a physical DCE appliance with a license for 25 nodes, then you need to contact local =SE= technical support. You must have a valid =SE= service contract in order to get a link to download the latest DCE-7.6.0 restore iso-image. If this is true, then you can deploy the restore iso-image to your physical DCE appliance and be able to discover 25 nodes without purchasing additional licenses.

If you have more questions, please ask.

With respect.

Hi Tinh

The AP94VMTRL software you are using is free to download for 5 nodes only.  It’s like a trial version.   If you want to extend beyond 5 nodes, you need to turn the TRL version into a REAL DCE which includes  25 node license.   Purchase the activation key AP94VMACT.  I Recommend you also purchase SW support for free upgrades, access to bug fixes  and support service.   

Cheers

Ed

Thanks, but my hardware is 9465.

I saw in technical data, it Includes: 1 Node Surveillance License Key, 25-Node license key, CD with software, Installation guide, Server appliance, User Manual.

Now, I have just added not over 5 nodes although software indicate that having 25 node license.

Dear Tinh Nguyen Manh,

Please, show Help -> About window screenshot from your DCE-client software. This can help solve your problem.

Hi Tinh,

That version as seen in the help/about is not a hardware server as per the image with a serial number. That is a virtual server as spezialist noted, it is limited to 5 nodes until it is activated. The following k-base outlines this issue:
