 I am using express editon.

The following ad appears.

" Try Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub editon for 60 days. "

 

I keep using express editon, so I do not want to see the above ads, what should I do?

I'm not aware of a way to remove it but I'm asking around to get a definate answer.

@segun,

 

I am looking into this too, but I am not sure from where that message originates.  To help, could you supply us with a screen shot of what you see?  Thanks!

@segun,

 

I found it in the code... no screen shot needed now.

 

From what I see, there is no way to disable that promotional banner.  It is hard-coded to display if you don't have a license installed and have not started a trial.  It only displays if you are a full administrator so it should not appear if you are logged into CM as another type of user.

 

Is the banner annoying you or is there a functional problem it is causing as well?

Follow-up:

 

We tested internally and found that in Cloudera Manager 5.13, the banner can be made to disappear by:

 

1 - accepting the trial

2 - downgrading to express license

 

This downgrade license feature was introduced in CM 5.13, so these steps won't work in previous releases.

@segun,

 

Yet another follow-up :-).

 

Try the following:

 

1 - Start the Trial

2 - End the Trial

 

This should revert to Express and I think that will also stop the "trial" banner from appearing.

 

Let us know!

 

Thanks,

 

Ben
