Why do I get different UIM License Expiration Message Severity messages?


Article ID: 34928

DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)



UIM has a built in process to automatically generate alarms for licensing when they need to be renewed.
This is designed to make sure the customer has plenty of time to contact the Account teams and get renewed licensing
before an interruption to service happens.



License alarms begin at 30 days until expiration and the alarm level varies based on the number of days until the actual expiration data.  Here is the breakdown:
Days to
Expiration   Alarm level

30 to 22       Informational
21 to 15       Warning
14 to 8         Major
7 to 0           Critical

The license message received will look something like:  "<probe name> license will expire in <number> days".  It is not possible to stop these alarms without installing a new license, but it is possible to create a nas probe Auto Operator which makes them invisible or closes them right away.
