The licensing functionality explained in this article is no longer applicable for CA UIM 9.2.0. From CA UIM 9.2.0 onward, hub/robot- and probe-level licensing requirements have been removed. Deploy the hub, robot, and distsrv versions released with CA UIM 9.2.0 to remove the license dependency. If you want to continue with the older versions of hub and probes that require an extension of the license, contact Support so that they can assist you in extending the license (if required).
