Opened: May 10, 2019

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When booting into a 14.0.0 version on which restricted license mode is not enabled, the license-expired message shows the generic 'license expired' message, but does not list the specific modules.

Impact

License expired message is generic, and does not list the specific modules which are not enabled on 14.0.0.

Conditions

Modules with license not enabled. Note: This occurs in a specific scenario in which you upgrade to an unlicensed version, revert to the previous version, don't change the license, and upgrade back to the original version. This fails as it is designed to, but reports the general 'invalid license' failure rather than the more specific one.

Workaround

None. Specific modules not enabled for 14.0.0 may show 'generic' license expired. You can cross-check if there are any modules which are not enabled for 14.0.0.

Fix Information

None
