nsr_license - NetWorker resource type ``NSR license''  


type: NSR license  


A resource of type NSR license is used to describe each feature enabled in your NetWorker installation. See nsr_resource(5) for more information on NetWorker resources. To inspect the NSR license resources type:
nsradmin -c "type:NSR license"

or use NetWorker Management Console. NSR license resources may be created, enabled and authorized from the GUI, but the nsrcap(8) command must be used to update an existing license resource. See nsradmin(8) for more information on using the NetWorker administration program.  


The following attributes are defined for resource type NSR license. The information in parentheses describes how the attribute values are accessed. Create-only indicates that the value cannot be changed by an administrator, except when the resource is created. Read/write means the value can be changed at any time by authorized administrators. Read-only means the value cannot be changed by authorized administrators. Static attributes change values rarely, if ever. Dynamic attributes may change often. Hidden means it is an attribute of interest only to programs or experts, and these attributes can only be seen when the hidden option is turned on in nsradmin(8). For example, an attribute marked (create-only, static) has a value which is set when the attribute is created and never changes. Several additional attributes (for example, administrator) are common to all resources, and are described in nsr_resource(5).

name (create-only, static)
This attribute holds the name of the license resource.
comment              (read/write)
This attribute is provided for the administrator to keep any explanatory
remarks or supplementary information about the license.
enabler code (create-only, static)
This code is identical to the code entered into the nsrcap(8) command to enable the feature named in this resource. The enabler code consists of 18 hexidecimal digits, printed in groups of 6 digits.
Example: enabler code: 123456-123456-123456;
host id (read-only, dynamic)
The unique host id associated with the computer or licensed operating system on which the enabler has been loaded. This value will often be an 8 digit hexidecimal number; however, other formats are possible, depending on specific platform requirements.
Example: host id: 7260d859;
expiration date (read-only)
The date on which this enabler will expire, if the enabler is an evaluation enabler or an otherwise un-registered license enabler. The enabler expires at 12:00:01 am on the date listed. The special prefix G means that a grace period has been allowed for this enabler. Enablers with the grace period allowed should be registered immediately. If the enabler has been registered, and the auth code is filled in with a valid value, the value will be as shown in the example, below.
Example: expiration date: Authorized - no expiration date;
auth code (read/write)
An 8 digit hexidecimal value used to permanently authorize an enabler. The unique, valid authorization code for an enabler is obtained from EMC by registering each purchased license enabler. Evaluation enablers cannot be permanently authorized. If the server's host id changes, all authorization codes will immediately be invalidated, and the enablers must be re-registered with EMC to obtain new authorization codes.
Example: auth code: abcdef00;
license type (create-only, hidden)
A special code, used internally to describe the specific feature or features enabled by this license enabler.
Example: license type: J16;
checksum (read/write, hidden)
A coded checksum used to maintain consistency of a NSR license resource, and between license resources.


Below is a complete NSR license resource for an authorized base enabler:

                 type:NSR license;
                 name:NetWorker Advanced/10;
                 enabler code:123456-123456-123456;
                 host id:7260d859;
                 expiration date:Authorized - no expiration date;
                 auth code:abcdef00;
                 license type:B10;



/nsr/res/nsrdb - files in this directory should never be edited directly. Use NetWorker Management Console instead.
