Active license entitlement and capacity

Level 5

Hello Team,

Master server: Solaris 

Netbackup version 8.1.1

Is there any way to check the "Active license entitlement and how much capacity license we have procured and current usage"?

Please let me know. can we get this information through nbdeployutil?


Level 5

NBDEPLOYUTIL will give you what you're using. You'll need to log on to the support/entitlement page in order to see what your capacity is. You can upgrade to 8.2 ( might be available with 8.1.2? I can't recall) and configure SmartMeter to upload regularly. Smart Meter will have what you're entitled to and how much is currently in use.

Note that there is a problem with the telemetery data from the Master servers that SmartMeter ingests. We had to apply an EEB to fix it because we were over our license according to SmartMeter but were way below our entitlement according to NBDEPLOYUTIL. EEB (3994999)

I am trying to run NBDEPLOYUTIL but what i need to fill below
