Removing SRC License Allocated for a Virtual Router (SRC CLI)


Remove the license allocated for a virtual router to prevent licenses from getting completely used up.

When the licenses allocated for existing virtual routers become inactive, it results in preventing new service sessions being created for another virtual router due to exhaustion of licenses. Use the request sae license remove-allocated virtual-router virtual-router-name command to remove licenses for an inactive router driver.


When inactive, the virtual router is not listed in the show sae drivers command output.

To remove a license allocated for a virtual router:

  1. View the licenses allocated for each and every virtual router.
  2. Remove the allocated license.

    This command is applicable only for the inactive router drivers and virtual routers managed by the same SAE.

You can use the show license allocated command to verify whether the license has been removed.
