remove File Persona with expired licence

Hello,
3par 8400
Release version 3.3.1 (MU3)
Patches: P50,P58,P61,P77,P78,P81,P91,P92,P97
What: want to remove the entire File Persona
Why: license expired and no need FP
After executing "stopfs -remove 2:3:1 3:3:1" , I have not been able to reboot FP and I cannot delete the File Persona Groups (FPG) because "File Persona services not running.". 
Executing "startfs -enable 2,3" I receive message "This system is not licensed for HPE 3PAR File Persona."
Is there a way to remove File Persona (FPG) even if it has no active licence?
Any help is welcome. Thanks

Hello @SGS1965,

After the license is expired, it will not let you perform any of the File Personal related activities (including stop/removal).

However, give an attempt from GUI. Go to SSMC main menu >> file persona >> Configuration.

The next option will be contacting HPE support, request them to enable temporary license and cleanup File Persona completely.
