For BYOL, you must revoke the Teradata Database or Teradata IntelliSphere license before deallocating or deleting a VM, and before deleting the Azure resource group. If you accidentally delete the resource group before you revoke the licenses, contact Teradata Customer Support.

Since licensing information is logged in the Azure diagnostic storage account named diag, it is important to keep the CanNotDelete resource lock on this diagnostic storage account to prevent diagnostic logs from being deleted.

  1. Switch to the root user environment.
    # sudo su -
  2. Run the following command from a Teradata Database node.
    The revocation is complete when you see License has been revoked successfully.
  3. Verify the revoked license was credited back.
    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 increased by the number of revoked TCores.
You can now deallocate or delete the VM, or delete the resource group.
