What should be the correct way to remove keyless and install new keys

Environment

OS = Linux Redhat 6.2

Storage Foundation version = 6.0 with RP1

connectivity = Both primary and secondary site nodes can ping successfully and replication is working 100% fine.

Query

What should be the correct way to remove keyless and install new licence keys. Suggesstion required

(I have seen the below TN but this will make me confuse as when I installed the new keys, the KeyLess and new Keys will both show the PERMANENT)

 

  • I beleive you need to run:

     

    vxlicinst -k XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXX (add new license)
    vxdctl license init  (re-read licences)
    vxkeyless set NONE   (remove keyless licences)
    vxdctl license init  (re-read licences)

     

    You may not need both, vxdctl license init commands, but I have put first one there to make sure software is aware new license is there before keyless licence is removed and second one there to make sure software is aware keyless license is removed.
