Context

This command performs one of these actions:

A feature pack is a predefined set of several features, such as Snapshot Upgrade and Synchronous Mirroring. These features are combined for the convenience of the users. When users install a feature pack, all of the features in the feature pack are installed at one time.

Each feature is managed by a license key that is generated for a specific feature or feature pack and a specific storage array. The license key is delivered as a file that you run to apply the license for the feature.

To determine which features are loaded on the storage array run the show storageArray features command. The show storageArray features command lists all of the features installed on the storage array, which features can be evaluated for a trial period, which features are enabled, and which features are disabled.
