Known Affected Versions:

Opened: Jul 12, 2017 Severity: 3-Major
Unlicensed warning message 'The Unlicensed fields allow configuration on this page but does not take effect in the system' is displayed, even though the functionality works fine.
Incorrect information is provided in the message. Misleading message indicates that DHCP Relay functionality may not work, even though it does work. This is a cosmetic issue, and you can safely ignore the message.
No PEM/AFM license.
None needed. This is a cosmetic error. Note: Having a license for LTM is enough for DHCP Relay functionality to work. The GUI erroneously checks for the Subscriber Management license, which comes with PEM/AFM license, and displays warning message if not available. However, the lack of the Subscriber Management license is not required for DHCP Relay functionality to work, and the message should not be displayed.
LTM license is enough for DHCP Relay functionality to work. But GUI checks for Subscriber Management license which comes with PEM/AFM license and displays warning message if not available.
