A classic license is a text element entered in the cluster using the GUI or the CLI. The following is an example:
Follow the instructions to create a get.weka.io account appearing in the log-in instructions.
After creating an account in get.weka.io, an entitlement will be applied to the account by a Weka sales or support person. Outstanding entitlements can be viewed in the account dashboard.
Start by running the
weka cluster license command, which will output all the information required for creating your license. The following is an example output:
# weka cluster licenseLicensing status: UnlicensedYour cluster is currently unlicensed. Please go to https://get.weka.io/ to get a licenseor enroll in a subscription.When asked, you'll need the following details to create your license:Cluster GUID : bbb6639d-3eaa-483b-b532-31a560d5859dRaw Drive Capacity : 5699 GBUsable Capacity : 0 GBObject-store Capacity : 0 GBIf you already have a license, please enter it by runningweka cluster license set <license-key>
Click Create a license in the Outstanding Entitlements pane in the Account dashboard. In the subsequent pane, select the line containing the entitlement for which a license is to be created (there is probably only one line) and then click the green Create a license button:
The Create License dialog box will be displayed. Enter the details obtained from the
weka cluster license command.
Fill-in the cluster GUID and capacities. Then click the Create License button to confirm.
After creating the license, the page showing licenses is displayed. it is always possible to return to this page to get previously-created licenses.
To apply the license to the cluster, click the three dots to the right of the license details and then select Show License Text.
The following dialog box with information on the new license is displayed.
Copy the license key or click copy to clipboard. Then run the following command on the cluster:
weka cluster license set <license-key>
where <license-key> is the license copied to the clipboard.
The cluster now has a license assigned to it.
To see the details of the current license and the current cluster usage, run the
weka cluster license command again. The following is an example of the output obtained:
# weka cluster licenseLicensing status: ClassicCurrent usage: 161 GB raw drive capacity0 GB object-store capacityInstalled license: Valid from 2018-07-01T10:39:42ZExpires at 2019-07-01T10:39:42Z1024 GB raw drive capacity2048 GB object-store capacity
Every newly-installed cluster is assigned a new GUID. It is possible to use an existing license for a cluster that has been reinstalled by selecting the Change Cluster GUID in the Applying a License to a Cluster pane.
After entering a new cluster GUID, click the Save Changes button and repeat the steps above for creating and applying the license key to your cluster.
