This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

We have Veritas-5.0MP3 installed on a 2 node cluster and user requires volume manager clone feature. If I upgrade to 5.1 version will the clone feature comes under it by default or do we need to install the clone license seperately. Please help.

Thanks in advance,

If you mean the ability to import a LUN that was cloned by an array, then according to https://sort.symantec.com/support/related_links/feature_support this requires an Enterprise License.

Check the o/p of:

vxdctl license | grep "Array Snapshot Integration Feature"

If 'Array Snapshot Integration Feature' is listed then array-level clones will work with VxVM.

Hi, you need give detail information  about  clone feature,  snapshot or  disk array level clone?

In 5.1sp1, there is keyless feature. You can enable any keyless license you need.

You need an Enterprise license and you need to have 5.1SP1 or higher.
