Viewing Licenses With Network Director

 

Juniper Networks devices require a license to operate some features. You can view the licenses for devices connected to Network Director.

To view the license for a Juniper Networks device on your network:

  1. Select the Build icon in the Network Director banner.
  2. In the View pane, select a wireless or wired device.
  3. In the Tasks pane, select View License Information.

    The Licenses page for that object is displayed with the fields listed in Table 1.

    Table 1: Viewing Licenses with Network Director

    Field

    Description

    Feature Name

    Name of the licensed SKU or feature. It can be used to look up the license with Juniper Networks. Not all devices support this.

    License Count

    Number of times an item has been licensed. This value can have contributions from more than one licensed SKU or feature. Alternatively, it can be 1, no matter how many times it has been licensed.

    Used Count

    Number of times the feature is used. For some types of licenses, the license count will be 1, no matter how many times it is used. For capacity-based licensable items, if infringement is supported, the license count can exceed the given count, which has a corresponding effect on the need count.

    Need Count

    Number of times the feature is used without a license. Not all devices can provide this information.

    Given Count

    Number of instances of the feature that are provided by default.

    Note

    If a device does not have a license, a blank page is displayed with the message, No license is installed on this device. If you are sure the device has a license, try resynchronizing the device before displaying the license again.

  4. Optionally, expand the license information by feature name to view the feature SKU information. Table 2 describes the additional fields that are displayed.

    Field

    Description

    Validity Type

    Validity type can be Databased (license expires on end date), Permanent, Countdown (license expires when time remaining is zero), or Trial. If the validity type is either Databased or Countdown, more information is displayed—License Name, License Version, License State, and Time Remaining. Additional information can be added in the details grid based on the SKU type (SKU or Feature)—Start Date, End Date, or Original Time Allowed.

    License Name

    If the validity type is either Databased or Countdown, the identifier associated with a license key is displayed.

    License Version

    If the validity type is either Databased or Countdown, the version of a license is displayed. The version indicates how the license is validated, the type of signature, and the signer of the license key.

    License State

    If the validity type is either Databased or Countdown, the state of the license is displayed—Valid, Invalid, or Expired.

    Time Remaining

    If the validity type is either Databased or Countdown, the remaining time left on the license is displayed. For a trial license, the number of days remaining after you installed the device is displayed. For a commercial license, the time remaining is unlimited.

    Start Date

    Based on the SKU type, the start date of the license can be displayed in the details grid.

    End Date

    Based on the SKU type, the end date of the license can be displayed in the details grid.

    Original Time Allowed

    Based on the SKU type, the original license timeframe can be displayed here.

Note

If you apply a new license to an existing wireless LAN controller, you must resynchronize the device before the new license is seen in Network Director. For directions, see Resynchronizing Device Configuration.
