Deleting a license key removes the license from the SDDC Manager inventory. If the license has been applied to any workload domain, host, or vSphere cluster, the license is not removed from them, but it cannot be applied to new workload domains, hosts, or vSphere clusters.


  1. In the navigation pane, click Administration > Licensing.
  2. Click the vertical ellipsis (three dots) next to the license key you want to delete and click Remove.
  3. In the Remove License key dialog, click Remove.
