Licenses window

Your storage system arrives from the factory with pre-installed software. If you want to add or remove a software license after you receive the storage system, you can use the Licenses window.

Note: System Manager does not monitor evaluation licenses and does not provide any warning when an evaluation license is nearing expiry. An evaluation license is a temporary license that expires after a certain period of time.
