system license clean-up

Remove unnecessary licenses

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

This command manages licenses in the cluster that have no effect, and so can be removed. Licenses that have expired or are not affiliated with any controller in the cluster are deleted by this command.

Parameters

[-unused [true]] - Remove unused licenses
If you use this parameter, the command removes licenses in the cluster that are not affiliated with any controller in the cluster.
[-expired [true]] - Remove expired licenses
If you use this parameter, the command removes licenses in the cluster that have expired.
[-simulate | -n [true]] - Simulate Only
If you use this parameter, the command will not remove the licenses. Instead it will display the licenses that will be removed if this parameter was not provided.

Examples

The following example simulates and displays the licenses that can be cleaned up:

cluster1::> system license clean-up -n -unused -expired
