Transfer licenses


You can transfer a valid enterprise license between two Portworx clusters. Both Portworx clusters need to be operational at the time of license transfer. The source cluster must have a valid Portworx Enterprise license, while the destination cluster can have either a valid or expired Trial license or expired Portworx Enterprise license.

License transfer command requires clusterUUID from the source cluster, (available via pxctl cluster list command) and remote Portworx cluster node IP.

pxctl license transfer -h
NAME:
   pxctl license transfer - Transfer license to remote PX cluster

USAGE:
   pxctl license transfer <clusterUUID> <remoteIP>

DESCRIPTION:
   Command swaps licenses between the two Portworx clusters.

   Note that both Portworx clusters need to be operational at the time this
   command is ran.
   The source cluster must have a valid Portworx Enterprise
 license, while the
   destination cluster can have either a valid or expired Trial license or expired Portworx Enterprise
 license.

EXAMPLE:
   pxctl license transfer f91531d9-bf65-46f5-9619-eb99128e3270 10.0.15.201

NOTE:

  • The license transfer happens directly between the Portworx clusters, so at least one node from source cluster must have a network connectivity to a node in the target Portworx cluster.
  • After the successful license transfer, the two Portworx clusters swap identities and licenses (for example, Portworx cluster A will have Trial license originally from Portworx cluster B, while the cluster B will have the Portworx Enterprise license originally from cluster A)
