Usage Guidelines

This command uninstalls a specific feature license product. This command effectively disables the specified feature.

This command accepts product_name as the name of the license product to be uninistalled. To view the license products installed on your switch, use the show licenses {[slot slot |all]} {detail} command with the detail option.

The revoke option invalidates the feature license and generates a revocation certificate, which is the first step to release the license entitlement back to the license entitlement manager (LEM), whereas the withhold option retains the license entitlement with the switch, and thus, the original license can be used to reinstall the feature license. If the specified file name (for revocation_file) does not have an .rvk extension, it is automatically appended.

To install a license, use the following command install license file filename {slot slot}.


The following example removes the MACsec (PRD-5000-MACSEC) license product from a switch: and generate a revocation certificate (macsec_lic.rvk) to release the license entitlement and invalidate the license key:

# uninstall license product PRD-5000-MACSEC revoke macsec_lic.rvk


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 31.1.
