system license show-status


The following example displays the license status of the cluster:

cluster1::> system license show-status Status License Scope Detailed Status --------- ------------------- --------- ---------------------- partially-installed CIFS node License missing on: Node2-Cluster1. SnapRestore node License missing on: Node2-Cluster1. valid FCP node - FabricPool cluster The system is using 1TB, and can use up to 25TB. not-installed NFS - - iSCSI - - SnapMirror - - FlexClone - - SnapVault - - SnapLock - - SnapManagerSuite - - SnapProtectApps - - V_StorageAttach - - Insight_Balance - - OCShift - - TPM - - VE - - DP_Optimized - - not-applicable Cloud - - Select - - 20 entries were displayed.

Delete the license of a package from the cluster or a node whose serial number you specify

system license delete


The following example deletes a license named CIFS and serial number 1-81-0000000000000000000123456 from the cluster:

cluster1::> system license delete -serial-number 1-81-0000000000000000000123456 -package CIFS

The following example deletes from the cluster all of the licenses under the installed-license Core Bundle for serial number 123456789:
