By community edition, I must supply a valid license using the -l (--license) option when I create da

I download community edition vertica-7.0.0-1.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm.
The installation process is:
1. rpm -Uvh vertica-7.0.0-1.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm
2. /opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica --hosts --rpm vertica-7.0.0-1.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm --dba-user dbadmin --dba-user-password password --ssh-password developer --failture-threshod NONE
3. log in as dbadmin and execute /opt/vertica/bin/adminTools -t create_db -s -d rella
The creation operation is failed and the error message is:
Info: no password specified, using none
Error: a database license has not been installed.
You must supply a valid license using the -l (--license) option.

Why I must supply a valid license when I use community edition?
Where is the valid license for community edition?

    You don't require the license for CE edition.Will suggest you to kindly perform the below steps & let me know if still faces any issues.

    1) run /opt/vertica/bin/adminTools 
    2) choose 7) advanced menu 
    3) choose 5) Upgrade License Key 
    4) submit a blank license key 
    5) create the database in either the adminTool or MC.

    Thank you very much!

    Is there any silent way to do it? I need to write a script to install vertica and create database and schema.

    I'm having a similar issue. I want to do a silent install and am providing the -l CE parameter as per documentation and produces an error.  I have also tried --license CE but without any luck.
