We just received the long awaited shipment of sixteen 300GB FC-HDD’s (2Gbps with 10000rpm) for our SAN (a pretty old DS4500/FaStT 900).
But there’s still the software option missing we ordered within the same breath. So I called our trustworthy IBM distributor (hah!) and asked the guy responsible for sales, what the ETA on this software option is (if someone is interested its VolumeCopy/FlashCopy).
He told me, that we’ll receive a letter with the license key about 4 weeks after commission !!!!!!
I nearly fell from my chair when he told me that.
I still can’t believe it, that sending a license key printed upon a simple page is taking 4 weeks 😮
Luca had a nice comment about that:
