You can check if you have global cluster enabled by the following command : 

$ vxlicrep -e |grep Global

   Global Cluster Option#VERITAS Cluster Server = Enabled
   Global Cluster Option#VERITAS Cluster Server = Enabled
   Global Cluster Option               = Enabled

Best Regards,

Novonil

Hi,

You can use GCO & should have GCO option enabled if the license is HA/DR. As Novonil mentioned, check with the above mentioned command.

"VRTS CLUSTER SERVER HA/DR"  IS the special licence to use GCO - this license allows you to use GCO or an RDC (Replicated Data Cluster).
