About this task

For certain products, you can install a grace license with the software for emergency use when no other license is available. If at least one feature of the product you want has an available grace license, the Start Grace Period menu action appears in the Choose Actions menu for that product. Start the grace period for emergency cases only. You cannot restart a grace period after the grace period expires. Once you start the grace period, it disables the Start Grace Period action. The action does not show if a grace period is not available for the product.


  1. In the License Actions column, click Start Grace Period in the Choose Actions menu.
  2. Select the check box beside the features you want to start a grace period for and click Start.
  3. If you want to continue with the process, click Start, or click Cancel to exit.
    Note: If there is an issue with the grace license, an error message appears in the Features column in red.
  4. Click Close.
