Hello @AJM ,
thank you for reaching out regarding what happens after your subscription license expires. Please kindly specify the exact version you are planning to use to be able to provide you with a more accurate answer.
In this thread, we discussed that e.g. in CDH6 with a trial license you can install Cloudera Express and it has a 100 nodes limitation. Once any license expires, the documentation describes here what happens:
- Cloudera Enterprise Cloudera Enterprise Trial - Enterprise features are disabled.
- Cloudera Enterprise - Most enterprise features such as Navigator, reports, Auto-TLS, and fine-grained permissions are disabled. Key Trustee KMS and the Key Trustee server will continue to function on the cluster, but you cannot change any configurations or add any services. Navigator will not continue to collect audits, but existing audits will remain on disk in the Cloudera Manager audit table. On license expiration, the license expiration banner displays which enterprise features have been disabled.
With our latest product, CDP, you can find the licensing information here.
Please let us know if you need more information on this topic.
