Is the only method to apply a new license, after the current one has expired, via CLI and using "cplic"? Smart Update cannot be launched independently like it was in previous versions that I am aware of. I suppose you could use CPUSE but typing a license out is fraught with errors.
Any chance of this being a roadmap item? The temporary plug 'n' play license and evals do bite customers in the field and being able to quickly apply a license via a gui makes things easier for the admin. My 2 cents.
