License Warning Messages

For using features that require a license, you must install 
and configure a license key. To obtain a license key, use 
the contact information provided in your certificate.

If you have not purchased the AFL or EFL and installed the 
license key, you receive warnings when you try to commit 
the configuration:

[edit protocols]

error: commit failed: (statements constraint check failed)

The system generates system log (syslog) alarm messages notifying 
you that the feature requires a license—for example:

Sep  3 05:59:11   craftd[806]:  Minor alarm set, BGP Routing Protocol usage requires a license
Sep  3 05:59:11   alarmd[805]: Alarm set: License color=YELLOW, class=CHASSIS, reason=BGP Routing Protocol usage requires a 
Sep  3 05:59:11   alarmd[805]: LICENSE_EXPIRED: License for feature bgp(47) expired
