Important customer registration key information

Please note the following information about customer registration keys:

  • The customer registration key does not contain any entitlement information.

  • When you sign in to Smart Meter, you can see a list of all account IDs associated with your account.

  • You can download a single customer registration key or an aggregate key:

    • A single key is associated with a single account.

    • You can also download an aggregate customer registration key that is associated with multiple account IDs. If you download an aggregate key, the NetBackup web UI prompts you to select the account ID that is associated with the master server.

      Caution:

      Do not modify the file name of the registration key.

  • The customer registration key is required during NetBackup 8.1.2 or later installation or upgrade.

  • You can use a customer registration key with one or more of your master servers and regardless of the entitlement type that is associated with the account. However, usage reporting is only available for an account that uses capacity licensing.

  • The usage details for a master server are reported for the account that is associated with that master server. (The account was determined from customer registration key that you selected during installation or upgrade.)

  • To change the account ID that is associated with the master server, see the Post upgrade or install section from the following topic:

    See Enable Veritas Smart Meter.

  • For every account ID in Smart Meter, you can see the capacity usage compared to your entitled capacity.
