license user change

Hello everyone,

Encounter some strange behavior on the qlikview server here when I try to change a user associated with a qlikview license.

Here the details:

I have a user with no license and just want to switch this user with one having a lic.

Therefore I delete (klick the red cross) and hit apply but the user isn't deleted. It's still there and the amount of used lics didn't drop which confirms no deleted user....Now if I try the same for a user that has never used its lic it works rightaway and I can delete this user and add the new one...

Since I am at the max of my lic I have to delete one to be able to add another one... This is Qlikview server 9 release 2

I have enabled the settings below:

Allow license lease
Allow dynamic CAL assignment

Anyone with simillar expierences? Would be great if you could share....

if a CAL is used and you delete it it will be quarantined for approximately 24 hrs before you can properly delete it. this is to prevent abuse.

Dear Friend ,

There is no need to wail till 24 hours in qlikview 9 . when you delete cal it affect just within second.

if that is true for a named cal that has been in use within the last 24 hours then it is a severe bug.
