Introduction

This document describes the process to troubleshoot the inability to apply licenses in Cisco Unified Intelligence Center (CUIC) caused by an incorrect license type.

Troubleshoot

The Virtual Machine (VM) License (from CUIC 8.0(3) release and later) should be in this format, where the MACID tag should be in the VENDOR_STRING.
The value of MACID should be the license MAC of the VM and the value of HOSTID should be "ANY".

Media Convergence Server (MCS) Licenses (from CUIC 8.0(3) release and later) should be in this format, where MACID should be Network Interface Controller (NIC) MAC of the physical unit and the HOSTID value should be "ANY".

MCS licenses (earlier than CUIC 8.0(3) release and later) should be in this format, where the value of HOSTID should be the NIC MAC of the physical unit.

Note: There should not be a <MACID> tag in the VENDOR_STRING.

Data Analysis

You must ensure the proper method is used to collect the MAC ID as it is different for each platfom.

For Bare Metal (BM) platforms, the MACID is the NIC ID on the server.

For a VM platform, it is a License MACID similar to the Unified Contact Center Express (UCCX) MACID.

In order to collect a License MACID, open a Secure Shell (SSH) connection to the CUIC Controller and enter this command:

Once a License MACID is received, the customer must request a license for "Cisco Unified Intelligence Center 2" product family when the platform is for a VM.
