Hi Folks,

 

This release note version 7.1.0 of BIG-IQ Centralized Management.

http://techdocs.f5.com/kb/en-us/products/big-iq-centralized-mgmt/releasenotes/relnote-big-iq-centralmgmt-7-1-0.html

 

Says:

 

---------

BIG-IQ license no longer required for Data Collection Devices: If you are setting up a BIG-IQ data collection device, you no longer need to provide a BIG-IQ base registration key, and can skip the option to license the device during setup.

---------

 

Does this means we run unlicensed DCDs?

 

I see "ModelNotLicensed:License INOPERATIVE" when ssh to the DCD !

 

 

Thank you,

-Abdel

So i always ask for a new license of F5-BIQ-VE-LOG-NODE. In 7.1 documentation shown that's not necessary more.
