About license violation of ver of 6.5 or later

Builder

In Splunk after 6.5, even if it is a trial license,
I think that there are no restrictions on functions when there are five license violations.

Now I want to know whether is there no function restriction due to license violation,
even if it move to a free license.

Hi yutaka1005,

could it be you're referring to the no-enforcement license introduced in Splunk 6.5 http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Admin/Aboutlicenseviolations#What_happens_during_a... ?
If the answer is yes, then the answer is:

 If you are using a new no-enforcement license, search continues even while you are in license violation. See Types of Splunk software licenses.

You can find more details about the no-enforcement license here http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Admin/TypesofSplunklicenses#Splunk_Enterprise_lice...

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Hi MuS,
Thank you for answer.

Yes I'm referring to the no-enforcement license.

Regarding the no-enforcement license, it is described in the manual as follows.

The Enterprise license enables all Enterprise features, such as authentication and distributed search. As of Splunk Enterprise 6.5.0, new Enterprise licenses are no-enforcement licenses.

I think that Trial license corresponds to "Enterprise licenses", so I think that it corresponds to no-enforcement licenses.

However, I did not know if the free license since the trial period expired corresponds to "Enterprise licenses" or no-enforcement licenses.
So I asked this question.

Do you agree that you are saying that if it is ver of 6.5 or later, can the free license also correspond to no-enforcement licenses?

cheers, Yutaka1005

No, the free license does not corresponds to the Enterprise License and therefore the no-enforcement license is not available. Find more details here http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/MoreaboutSplunkFree#What_is_included_with_S...
Also check this table http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Admin/TypesofSplunklicenses#Compare_license_featur... which helps to understand the differences between the licenses.
