I entered a bad license file in CM and I was wondering how I remove it from the system even though it is not doing anything. It is not a big deal but I have seen a TAC engineer go in the CLI and do it before but do not remember the command.

Nevermind. I figured it out. It was 'file delete license '.

Thanks though!
