ERROR 5517: Your Vertica license is invalid or has expired

I'm getting the following error:

ERROR 5517:  Your Vertica license is invalid or has expired

HINT:  Drop table(s) or partition(s) then run "select audit_license_size();"


At this point I can't run any query or DELETE command.

All my data is in a single table which is not partitioned, so dropping it means loosing all data.

I was wondering if there's a way to rescue some of this data?

Is it possible to get a temporary license for a few days that would allow me to access the data?

    You should contact HP Vertica Support and ask for HP Vertica License.




    Upgrade your Vertica to 7.2 and upgrade you license to HP autopass license then ask for add on licenses
