Revoke pool license from a BIG-IP VE device

Before you can revoke a license for a device in your network, you must have the device's IP address.
When fewer devices are required for your applications, you can revoke licenses to reassign them to other BIG-IP VE devices, as needed. This procedure allows you to revoke a single license.
When you revoke a BIG-IP license, BIG-IQ removes it from the BIG-IP. When the license is removed, that BIG-IP is no longer operable and won't be able to manage traffic.

  6. Click the
    button at the bottom of the screen.
This license is now available for re-assignment to another BIG-IP VE device.
