Data Ontap 8.2 7-Mode
- In 7-Mode, Data ONTAP 8.2 checks to make sure that license keys have the correct Controller Serial Number upon installation.
- The installation will fail if the host Controller Serial Number does not match the Controller Serial Number embedded in the license key.
- Data ONTAP also checks for the proper license key during certain transactions, at certain time intervals, and upon a re-boot.
- Different features might check their license key at different times.
