Introduction

(Back to top)


The installation script for Storage Foundation HA provides the option of using a "keyless" licensing mode. Keyless licensing allows the convenience of installing without entering a key. This requires each host to be registered with a Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) management server. Without a VOM management server, the keyless licenses will function for 60 days from the date of installation. After the 60 day period is over, "WARNING V-365-1-1" messages will begin to appear, as shown in the error example of this article.
