A: COMM licenses need to be obtained in the following scenarios: new site projects and capacity expansion projects.

Obtaining COMM Licenses for New Site Projects

Context

For new site projects with contracts, COMM licenses are generated according to the orders. Onsite engineers need to download and install the licenses bound to ESNs.

Two methods are available for obtaining COMM licenses in this scenario: entitlement activation and password activation. In entitlement activation mode, select the specified entitlement ID, bind it to the network element (NE), and activate the entitlement. This mode is applicable to scenarios where the mappings between entitlements and NEs are clarified.

Procedure

                               Step 1      Find the license certificate in the delivery accessories and obtain the entitlement ID (LAC) or activation ID.

The license certificate is provided to customers in ** papers or CD-ROMs.

                               Step 2      Log in to the device and run the display esn command in any view to obtain the ESN of the device.

For a CSS, you can run the display esn command to obtain the ESNs of all member MPUs. If the ACU2&IPS Module&NGFW Module licenses isare involved, you need to log in to the ACU2&IPS Module&NGFW Module to obtain the ESN.

                               Step 3      Log in to the ESDP system at http://app.huawei.com/isdp.

                               Step 4      Activate the license.

Obtaining COMM Licenses for Capacity Expansion Projects

Prerequisites

l   The entitlement ID (LAC) and capacity expansion contract ID have been obtained.

l   The device ESNs have been obtained.

l   The product name and ESN in the contract are the same as those on the live network.

l   The entitlement in Ready state is available for the device that requires capacity expansion.

Context

For capacity expansion projects, the license management system automatically combines the licenses on the same device to generate a new license file. The version of product with capacity expanded must be the same as or later than the version of current product.

Procedure

                               Step 1      Log in to the ESDP system at http://app.huawei.com/isdp.

                               Step 2      Verify that the capacity expansion conditions are met.

1.         Click Equipment(Node) Management in the navigation tree on the left.

2.         On the Equipment(Node) Management page, enter the ESN of a specified device and click Search to verify that authorization information about this device exists on the ESDP system and the ESN of the device is correct.

3.         Verify the delivery status of the license in the search result.

           If the status is Activated, roll back the license status to Ready by referring to 4.6 Rolling Back a License and continue with Step 3.

           If the status is Ready, go to Step 3.

           If any other status is displayed, contact Huawei technical support personnel.
