Understanding 7-Mode 'license show' command output


What does the "-"/hyphen/dash mean in the Expiration field? How does one determine the current expiration of installed licenses based on this output?


Package           Type    Description           Expiration
----------------- ------- --------------------- --------------------
NFS               license NFS License           -
CIFS              license CIFS License          -
FCP               license FCP License           -
SnapRestore       license SnapRestore License   -
SnapMirror        license SnapMirror License    -
FlexClone         license FlexClone License     -
SnapVault         license SnapVault License     -


These services are currently active and in use yet, the Expiration field doesn't appear to reflect that we are licensed for them. I would expect it to at least say something other than the current output. This is confusing when trying to troubleshoot a potential licensing issue.


Thank you in advance. I greatly appreciate it!

Flippin Mango -


Those are licenses with no expiration date, hence the blank field.

See also the license command man page https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1511537/html/man1/na_license.1.html

The only time I've seen expiration dates listed is when I've given a customer a temporary demo license for a feature.

We also use temp license keys for lab excercises in the NetApp classes we teach.


Noticed your login name.

Had to share that my home in the US is in Flippin, Arkansas.
