delete a license?

I received a block of licenses for our OneViews.  I made the mistake of telling the license center to send them all to me in one license key.  We have two OneView appliances.  The block of licenses are needed on both.  I made the mistake of adding it to one of the appliances.  Now I need to see if I can:

  1. Remove the license key from that appliance.
  2. Go back to the license center and download in two blocks.
  3. Add the two blocks to the two OneView instances.

Is 1. possible?

As long as no server hardware have been assigned the key, yes you can.  Only via the REST API.  Look at the DELETE /rest/license/{licenseID} API call to remove the license

Hi Chris,

No, unfortunately as soon as I added it, it started assigning licenses.  I guess we'll just have to live with it.

Thanks!
