/opt/VRTS/bin/vxlicinst – Installs a Symantec license key

Product – Veritas Volume Manager-vxvm (Storage Foundation)

Installs a Symantec license key that you supply when issuing the command. You must enter the license key in single-byte ASCII characters. If no arguments are provided, the utility prompts you for the license key.

  •  If you are upgrading your existing license or you are installing new license to change the system from KEYLESS to licensed, make sure you are copying your existing license information from ‘/etc/vx/license/lic’ directory. Also keep the complete output of ‘vxlicrep -e’ command.
  •  Once you installed or updated your Symantec license, use ‘vxdctl license init’ to reinitialize.
  •  If the system is part of VERITAS Cluster you need to restart ‘/opt/VRTSvcs/bin/CmdServer’ as well after freezing nodes.
  • You can verify the new features by issuing ‘vxlicrep’ & ‘vxdctl license’.
