Storage policies (array-based replication) Protection Group - license required

Jump to solution

Hello!

For context we currently have SRM standard licenses.

When attempting to create a protection group of type 'Storage policies (array-based replication)' the operation fails with the error message 'There are not enough licenses installed to perform the operation.'

Am I correct in saying that an SRM enterprise license is required for storage policy-based management and stretched storage support?

Have you assign the SRM license if  not you can assign it. Make sure both site have SRM license.Also, what type of storage are you using?
