Library Expansion Option Violation!
A while back we purchased a license for the LEO module in order to support a second robotic tape drive. As with all storage resources we now need to add a third drive, however I get the following error message when I try to bring the third drive online:-
"Library Expansion Option Violation! This server is licensed to support 2 tape drives in robotic libraries. However, the number of tape drives currently in use exceeds the license. You must purchase additional Library Expansion Options, or disable 1 tape drive. Please refer to product documentation for more information."
If this message is true it seems rather unfair to have to pay Veritas yet more money for something that I thought we had already bought. Has anyone else had this problem and maybe found a solution that does not invlove giving Veritas more money. We are currently using 2 x HP 6 slot auto loaders (with a view to adding a third).
The irony is that the third drive is only being used to troubleshoot a problem with our backups that veritas have failed to get to the bottom of.
