arcserve-KB : How to release node licenses in arcserve Virtual Standby

Last Update: 2016-04-25 13:46:07 UTC

Description: CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby licensing functions on a count-based mechanism. Count-based licensing lets you grant a single overall license to the node with a predetermined number of active license rights included in the overall license pool. Each node that uses the license is granted an active license from the pool, on a first-come basis, until the total number of available license rights has been reached. If all the active license rights were applied and you want to add a license to a different node, release the license rights from one or more of the nodes to increase the available license count before the different node can use the license.
