Question on VCEM licensing

Question from Nick:

 

***************

 

Can someone confirm to me that if we have 2 xc7000 enclosures with Flex-Fabric stacked as a single domain we still need 2 VCEM licences (one per physical enclosure regardless of stacked or not)?

Reply from Fred:

VCEM is licensed on a per-enclosure basis. You’ll need a license for each of the enclosures. Stacking makes no difference to license requirements.

 

There’s additional information on VCEM licensing on pages 9 and 10 of the UG (http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c03453830/c03453830.pdf).

And input from Dave:

Another way of thinking about the VCEM licensing is by enclosure serial number.

 

In the field, if a midplane is replaced, it is a requirement that the serial number be changed to the original.

Especially in the case of VCEM.
