602596: Instance is not licensed automatically if license is lost or inoperative.
Component: Virtual Edition
Symptoms: Instance license does not work.
Conditions: This can happen for the following reasons: 1. Instance lost the license due to manual deletion of the license. 2. Instance license becomes inoperative after moving config without the no-license flag.
Impact: Instance license does not work and must be relicensed.
Workaround: The workaround depends on how the license was lost. If the license was manually deleted, run the following command to get a new license: /usr/libexec/autoLicense -l If the license became inoperative because the config was moved without the no-license flag, do the following to get a new license: 1. Delete /config/bigip.license. 2. Run this command: /usr/libexec/autoLicense -l.
