Essential License file install for Docker

I recently installed a portworx cluster on (3) swarm nodes for some (amazingly good) replicated storage options within the cluster.

However it seems I’m unable to download the essential license file I need to activate it, only instructions on the portal are to generate a k8s spec however I’m not using K8s.

Hi, You dont have to download or apply for any license for the essential cluster. by default, it comes with installation. can you please run this command on any one of the worker node /opt/pwx/bin/pxctl status ?

license has expired, I can no longer add volumes?

how do I convert to essentials?
