License Notifications

Licensing notifications display in the IPM UI, such as warnings that a license is about to expire. The content of the Licensing dialog box is different, depending on whether you are logged in as a IPM administrator (with the vw-admin role assigned) or a user that is not assigned administrator privileges.

Non-administrators do not have access to configuration settings in IPM and so cannot upload or modify licenses.


If you restore a backup on an appliance with no license, no health notifications are generated to notify you that the license is not there. Always ensure the appliance is licensed after restoring from a backup.


Oversubscription health notifications are not generated for software integrations after a Virtana Infrastructure Performance Management 6.1 restore. Restoring a VW 6.1 backup overwrites the licenses.
