License state

Status of a license file:
  • Normal

    This state value indicates that a license file is working properly. If the status of the license file on the live network is not Normal, check the license file.

  • Trial

    • If the device ESN changes, a normal license file enters the Trial state and can be used only for 60 days.

      To continue to use a license file after the Trial state, apply for a new license file matching the new ESN and activate it.

    • A license file expires and enters the Trial state.

      To continue to use a license file after the Trial state, apply for a new license file and activate it.

    • A license file is revoked and enters the Trial state.

      To continue to use a license file after the Trial state, apply for a new license file based on the revocation code and activate it.

  • Demo

    When you activate a temporary license file, it enters the Demo state. The Demo state exists only for a demo license file used for test and deployment.

    A license file in Demo state allows you to use normal functions within a specified period. Before the expiration of the license file in Demo state, replace it with a commercial license file.

  • Default

    After a license file expires, the functions controlled by the license become invalid (restored to the status before the license is activated).

    If you want to use services after a license file expires, apply for a new license file and activate it.
