Deleting a license key from the repository

April 14, 2024

ID 180115

When you delete the active license key for an additional feature of Administration Server, for example Vulnerability and patch management or Mobile Device Management, the corresponding feature becomes unavailable. If a reserve license key has been added, the reserve license key automatically becomes the active license key after the former active license key is deleted.

When you delete the active license key deployed to a managed device, the application will continue working on the managed device.

To delete a key file or activation code from the Administration Server repository:

  1. Check that Administration Server does not use a key file or activation code that you want to delete. If the Administration Server does, you cannot delete the key. To perform the check:
    1. In the main menu, click the settings icon () next to the name of the required Administration Server.

      The Administration Server properties window opens.

    2. On the General tab, select the License keys section.
    3. If the required key file or activation code is displayed in the section that opens, click the Remove active license key button, and then confirm the operation. After that, the Administration Server does not use the deleted license key, but the key remains in the Administration Server repository. If the required key file or activation code is not displayed, the Administration Server does not use it.
  2. In the main menu, go to OperationsLicensingKaspersky licenses.
  3. Select the required key file or activation code, and then click the Delete button.

The selected key file or activation code is deleted from the repository.

You can add a deleted license key again or add a new license key.
