Activate air-gapped license


PX-Backup allows its users on air-gapped cluster environments to opt for usage-based licenses so that they pay only for the backup nodes that are in use and for the number of node-hours they utilize. Users can activate usage-based licensing by activating air-gapped metering license. Also, for such environments, PX-Backup user interface provides an option to download a billing report. The users should share the report with the Portworx Support/CSM team for billing purposes.
