how to switch client license types.
04-11-2017 09:01 AM
Is there a way to switch license types on a client after they have been assigned one via adjoin? For example if I joined a workstation to the domain, but used a server client license, and now I want to re-assign it a client workstation license, is there a command to do that without having to do do an adleave and then another adjoin. I see there is an command like adjoin --licensetype "type" but I don't see an examples of using that command to change a license after the fact.

Yes, you can have a system use a workstation license provided this is a "workstation" class system based on the EULA.
Just use the adjoin command with the --licensetype switch at join time. If your system is already joined, just use the adleave command and rejoin.

Thank you for posting your question to our forum.
To change the licensing of a system that has been joined you can use the following command:
Example: adlicense -q ( this will show the current license type)
For all the functionality of the "adlicense" command please see "man adlicense"
