Licensing in the cloud

Previously, the cloud used the Usage Server to manage cloud licenses. Now, the cloud manages licensing using the Cloud Console.

A cloud running with more active cores than it is licensed for enters a probationary state. If the number of cores is not reduced within 24 hours, then the cloud enters reduced-functionality mode until the licensing discrepancy is resolved.


Perpetual licenses for clouds that were running on versions earlier than Support Package 5 and that were registered on the Usage Server must be manually added to the cloud after upgrading to Support Package 5 using the AddLicenses task.

  • Cloud tasks and utilities affected by these enhancements   The following changes were made to support this feature:`

    • GetLicenses task   Lists licenses used by the cloud.

    • AddLicenses task   Adds one or more license key(s) to the cloud.

    • RemoveLicenses task   Removes one or more license key(s) from the cloud.
