3.3 - RSF-1 Licences
The only difference between evaluation and production versions of RSF-1 is the licence string used to activate the product. Evaluation licenses normally have an expiry of 30 days from issue whereas permanent (purchased) licence keys are perpetual. Evaluation licenses can be upgraded to permanent ones without reconfiguration or service disruption.
The licence string is generated from the node's hostid, which can be determined once the base package has been installed as follows:
NOTE - A unique licence is required for each RSF-1 node in the cluster, and therefore the hostid of each server is required.
Evaluation licences may be obtained as follows:
Using the CLI:
Send an email to email@example.com
with the following body:
Subject: RSF-1 Evaluation License Request
custref: <organisation name, your name>
os: <Operating System and version>
By return, you will receive an email with the license strings required to activate the product together with: install script, RSF-1 password files and End User Licence Agreement (EULA).
By installing the licence keys, you are agreeing to the terms of the EULA.
On both nodes, temporarily save the received attachments in /tmp and install with install_lic.sh
# sh /tmp/install_lic.sh

To verify the licence strings, use rsfmon –v
