I have a 9509 with 1 18/4 blade with a SAN extension license connected over FCIP to a 9222i in our DR site. I have 2 servers connected to the 9509 that will be talking to 4 tape drives connected to the 9222i using 4 1g links and tape write acceleration. I planned to use IVR to control what links were in use for specific tape drives since I can't trunk with tape acceleration on. I do not have an enterprise license on the switches.
My understanding from the docs is that IVR is included in the SAN extension license for this type of connectivity. When I enabled IVR for this it started the timer for the grace license and logging license errors.
Am I missing something on how IVR should be enabled for this or on my configuration in relationship to the licensing?
Need 1 more dislay, now what we know that the Enterprise license is in use...we can see what lines in the MDS configuration are causing the Enterprise license to be invoked. I thought that the show license usage did include what feature triggered it.
show license usage ENTERPRISE_PKG
If the results of this command show the IVR for FCIP is triggering the license, then we need to investigate further and you might want to open a TAC case.
Sounds like I made the mistake of putting my tape drives on the transport VSAN's I created on the remote switch. I will try moving those into a different VSAN on the remote end and enable IVR on the remote switch to handle that. If that doesn't work I will open a case.
