Issue:

 

 

   

      Impacted Configuration & Settings [Replication Mode,Splitter Type,Compression,CDP/CLR/Multi,FC/IP/iSCSI, Policies etc.]:    
   
      RPA and VPLEX Metropoint    
   
      Impact on RP:    
   
      While the consumption of the licenses should always be equal on the two production Metro sites, RP might display different license consumption on each Metro site.    
   
      Symptoms:    
   
      RP might display that a license is consumed on one of the Metro sites only for a specific CG, however in a MetroPoint setup each CG is equally and simultaneously consuming the license capacity from both Metro sites.    
                                                             

 

 

Cause:

 

 

Root cause:    

      The license capacity that's consumed for the source replication size is determined according to the latestSourceCopy in the group's settings which in Metropoint configuration, can be either one of the production sites.

      N/A     
          
Workaround:    
      The actual license consumption of the MetroPoint setup can be calculated by summing the displayed consumption on both production MetroPoint sites.
