We currently are getting a message everyday for the call home that the Fabric Manager is grace period is going to expire in XX number of days. Is there any way to turn this alert off? This is annoying as we like the call home feature, but hate the NAG of the FM Server license.
It will be a few more weeks for 1.3.4 to be posted to CCO. If you require a interm build to resolve this a case can be opened with TAC and a request made.
A way to stop the Fabric Manager license nag message is to remove the license alert group from each call home destination profile.
To do this from the CLI, do these commands:
sh callhome destination-profile <-- note "alert groups configured"
full-txt-destination Configure destination profile for plain txt message
short-txt-destination Configure destination profile for short txt message
XML-destination Configure destination profile for XML message
destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group ?
All This alert group consists of all of the callhome
Avanti Avanti events
Cisco-TAC Events which are meant for Cisco TAC only
Environmental Power,fan,temperature related events
Inventory Inventory status events
License Events related to licensing
Linecard-Hardware Linecard related events
Supervisor-Hardware Supervisor related events
System Software related events
Test User generated test events
[For profiles with all alert groups configured:]
no destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group all
destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group Avanti
destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group Cisco-TAC
[repeat for all but "License" for each profile]
[For profiles with License and other alert groups configured:]
no destination-profile short-txt-destination alert-group license
copy run start
This process might work, depending on your version:
From the Device Manager main menu choose "Admin", then "Events", then "Call Home..."; choose the "Profiles" tab, left-click somewhere in the "AlertGroups" field for each profile, and uncheck "license". When done, click "Refresh" then "Close". When you exit, choose "Yes" when asked to save the configuration changes.
Later versions don't have "license" as an option, so you may need to use the CLI.
