AZURE -- F5 VE V14 -- License Expiry Check

Hi F5 Fraternity,

 

When I ran the command tmsh show sys license, It just gives me the Start Date Info. Which seems ok to me. But, the question is how do we know the Expiration of the License or the Support itself ?

 

Thanks

 

  • Hello Abdul,

    You can always check license details from the GUI:

    System -> License

    You can still check from the CLI if you would prefer, but the commands depend on what version of BIG-IP you are using. For versions 12 or later, running

    tmsh show sys license
    

    gives you the full license information, including the expiration and support information. If you are still having trouble finding it, you can always grep for what you need.

    tmsh show sys license | grep "End Date"
    tmsh show sys license | grep "Service"
    

    For versions 11 and earlier, we can use the following to check license details individually.

    tmsh 
    show /sys license detail | grep [details]
    

    Feel free to ask if you have any more questions,

    Austin

      Thanks Austin, for some reason on Version 13.0 when I ran the tmsh command piping with grep, I was not able to get the Expiration Date. May be its version specific.

      Did you get it to work from the GUI or did you upgrade? I wonder if it's a known issue or something new. What version 13 are you running?

      Thanks for the reply. Its V13.1.1(0.0.4 build). No I just asked my Accounts Team to know about the Expiration Date. Since its been holiday season, have not heard back from them yet. I spun V14 instances on one of our other ENV, even here I was not able look up via CLI for the expiration. Below is the output:

      tmsh show sys license
