Managing licenses on clusters
If you are unable to share cluster management information with Data Management SaaS or if you cannot connect your cluster to the internet for security reasons, you can consider keeping your cluster disconnected from Data Management. Data Management provides the following options:
- Connect to Data Management only for licensing purposes only—Only license usage information is transferred over the internet to Data Management. No other information is sent over the internet.
- Manually license your cluster—Every 180 days, you must manually download the audit report from the Data Protect cluster, upload the audit report on Data Management, generate the new license file on Data Management, and upload the new license file on the Data Protect cluster.
Note: If the Data Protect cluster is disconnected from Data Management, the License About To Expire alert is triggered when the license is about to expire.
