Hi,
We were facing some issues with our entreprise license and we got a Splunk Enterprise Reset Warnings Licenses to resolve the problem from our reseller. I would like to ask about that type of license : how many can we have per year ?

Thanks

HI,

why don´t you use a non violation licence? With 6.5.0 you can request one of these, then you will not have to reset your license when you have 5 violations.

Hi,
Could it be you're referring to the no-enforcement license introduced in Splunk 6.5 ?

Yes, mixed up the terms 🙂 so why don´t you use one of those?

A non enforcement license will simply prevent that your search function is disabled once you hit the 5 violations.

You can request a permanent no-enforcement license. this means you can breach as often as you want and you won't be stopped by any technical measures. However you will be in breach of EULA. Splunk can also legally do a true-up which might be expensive for you.

Just check under settings and licence if there is one. Then its in use.

Hi @baroudiem

You can have 5 violations in a rolling 30 day period. There is more info here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/Admin/Aboutlicenseviolations

Oh also "resets" are granted by support or your account manager. They will ask you a lot of questions if you keep requesting resets more than once.
