DisableQuotaEnforcement" error

New Member

I using splunk version 6.2.5 with Splunk Enterprise Term License 6.5 and I got No-Enforcement key from my vender.
I try to install No-Enforcement key license to my Splunk but the error showed as below.

"Bad Request — In handler 'licenses': YYYYYY_Splunk.License: failed to parse license because: Feature="DisableQuotaEnforcement" is unrecognized."

Splunk 6.2.x does not understand features added to the licensing in 6.5.x - do upgrade.

Thank you martin. I read the article from blog below so I think I only have license stack 6.5 so I can install no-enforcement key in earlier version but I could not get other cool feature...
I misunderstood.....

"If your organization isn’t ready to upgrade to Splunk Enterprise 6.5, you can simply upgrade your existing Splunk License Master to benefit from this change."

Yup, the license master version is what matters here.

Your vendor should also be able to give you a pre-6.5-version without the no enforcement flag, but I'd recommend an upgrade to benefit from many features and security patches since 6.2.5 many years ago.
