Somyaranjan,

Please execute "show license" and check the license type. You would get this warning message, if you are running a trial-license and it is about to expire in another 8 days.

Somyaranjan,

could you please share the output of "show license"?

In case, if you have applied a permanent license and if you are still receiving this warning message. We could clear the trial license by executing the command "debug epm clear trial-license".

Note:- This would require a reboot of the switch.

Could the trial license be enabled previously and cleared without the switch being rebooted ?
A reboot is needed after the trial-license is cleared.

Hi Oscark, No we have not enabled any license before... If so why we are not getting error while logged in via SSH.

Somyaranjan,

Am suspecting a trial license might be installed in the past and the switch wouldn't have been rebooted after clearing the trial license. Would it be possible for you to reboot only 1 switch and check if it is still logging the following message?

Is there any solution apart from this, for reboot i need to check with customer approval and get back to you..

Hi Somyaranjan,

As Vellachery has mentioned, you need to check if the switches are running in trial-license (guess they are running in trial-license).

Please refer following two articles related to Trial-license:
