Key licensing scenarios when SRM Profiler and SRM are integrated

SRM performs the following tasks on start up:

  • The SRM Orion Platform module retrieves licensing information from the SRM Profiler module. This information is kept in the SRM Orion Platform module license cache.
  • The SRM Orion Platform module retrieves a list of licensed arrays for both the SRM Orion Platform module and the SRM Profiler module. This information is kept in the SRM Orion Platform module license cache.

The license cache is used by the SRM Orion Platform module to perform license checks when adding or removing arrays.

Add an array to the SRM Orion module

When you add an array to the SRM Orion Platform module, the system checks to see if the array is licensed and monitored to the SRM Profiler module.

  • If the array is licensed in the SRM Profiler module, then the SRM Orion module adds the array to its inventory.
  • If the array is not licensed in the SRM Profiler module, a calculation is performed by the SRM Orion module to verify if adding the array exceeds the total licensed disk count.
  • If the total licensed disk count is not exceeded, the SRM Orion module adds the array, updates the license cache for the SRM Orion module, and sends a notification to the SRM Profiler module about the inventory change.
  • If the total licensed disk count is exceeded, the user receives a warning message and the array is not added.
