How do you activate 120 Days eval on MDS 9200 series for Fabric Manager. Do I need to install a license?

I have this problem too.

Fabric Manager does not need a license. What does need a license is Fabric Manager Server. This is a dedicated machine that sits between the client machine, and the MDS fabric. It lets you open and manage multiple fabrics at one time. It also us used for detailed performance statics collection.

If you want to know the status of the current licenses on the MDS, issue this command from the command line interface.

show license usage

This will show if the FMS license has been triggered into the 120 day trial period. As far as I know, the only way to trigger it is to setup the MDS for statistics collection using the 'Performance Manager' of Fabric Manager.

Hope this helps,

Mike

I'm assuming that Fabric Manager server can be installed and not licensed for evaluation needs. The plan is to use it and if it performe buy it.

Thanks Mike!
