Complete the steps promptly to prevent the Teradata Database from shutting down.
  1. Contact your Teradata Account Team to purchase a license renewal.
  2. Switch to the root user environment.
    # sudo su -
  3. Run the revoke command from a Teradata Database node.
    The revocation is complete when you see License has been revoked successfully.
  4. Verify the revoked TCores were credited back to your license.
    1. Log into the Teradata EMS server at https://slem.teradata.com/ecp.
    2. Click to expand Products.
    3. In the Available column, verify the quantity of available TCores has increased by the number of revoked TCores.
  5. Run the activate commands and follow instructions on the screen.
    sudo su -
    tdc-telm -m activate
    echo $?
    Zero (0) means the activation was successful; a number other than 0 means an error occurred.
  6. Run tdlem-util -r on all nodes in the system:
    sudo su -
    tdlem-util -r
  7. Log into the Teradata EMS server at https://slem.teradata.com/ecp and verify the quantity of available TCores decreased by the number of activated TCores.
  8. If the database shuts down between revoking and activating the license, restart the database.
