Removing a software application

System Administrator Guide for VSP 5000 Series

Part Number

You can remove a software application (for example, global-active device) from the storage system by uninstalling the license key for that software.
If you uninstall a license key, you will not be able to use the license key file that was used to install the software. If you want to install the software again, contact customer support to request a new license key file.

You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to perform this task.

  1. From the Administration tree, click License Keys.
  2. In the License Keys window, select one or more licenses to uninstall.

    On rare occasions, a software option that is listed as Not Installed but still has available licensed capacity (shown as XX TB) might remain in the list. In this case, select that option, and then uninstall the software.

  3. Click Remove to display the Remove Licenses window.
  4. Check the settings, and then click Apply.

    To reinstall a license key after uninstalling it, contact customer support to reissue the license key file.
