The following page lists the HTTP operations that need to be performed to successfully deactivate an LAC license. 

To deactivate a license for a given, unique combination of an activation key and a HostID, use the following request:

  • hostids (string) are Base64 encoded values. The format of HostID(s) that you can specify is a comma-separated list of types and values; for example, ETHERNET=AABBCCDDEEFF,IPADDRESS= 

 Note that request headers are used by default.
