Configuring the Cisco IOS Software Activation Feature

This document describes the tasks used to activate software by using the Cisco IOS Software Activation feature, license keys, and Cisco EXEC commands. When you activate software from a Cisco device, you can license software without the need for additional application software.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Use Cisco Feature Navigator to find information about platform support and Cisco software image support. To access Cisco Feature Navigator, go to www.cisco.com/​go/​cfn. An account on Cisco.com is not required.

Restrictions for Cisco IOS Software Activation

Not all Cisco hardware platforms can use the Cisco IOS Software Activation feature. Use the Cisco Feature Navigator at http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​go/​cfn and the table in the Feature Information for Cisco IOS Software Activation section to determine which platforms and images support the Cisco IOS Software Activation feature.

For the stackable switches that support the Cisco IOS Software Activation feature, one switch must act as primary and the others as secondaries. The primary switch performs management and administrative operations on itself as well as on the secondary switches.

Information About the Cisco IOS Software Activation

License Activation MIB Support

The Cisco IOS Software Activation feature introduces the CISCO-LICENSE-MGMT-MIB to allow SNMP-based license management and administrative tasks. A description of this MIB can be found by using tools at this URL: http:/​/​tools.cisco.com/​ITDIT/​MIBS/​servlet/​index

Use the MIB Locator tool and the Search for MIB selection box to select CISCO-LICENSE-MGMT-MIB .

The unique device identifier (UDI) is also associated with the Entity Name and Product Description data elements for the management information base (MIB) system. The MIB nomenclature for Entity Name is entPhysicalName and for Product Description is entPhysicalDescr.

How to Activate Software from a Cisco IOS Device

Installing and Upgrading Licenses by Using Software Activation Commands

Before You Begin

Read and understand the license activation process concepts in the in the “Cisco IOS Software Activation Conceptual Overview” module.

To install or upgrade a license by using the license install command, you must have already received the license file from the Cisco Product License Registration portal at http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​go/​license (or you already backed up the license by using the license save command).

If you use Microsoft Entourage and receive the license file from Cisco in an e-mail attachment, the license file will contain UTF-8 marking. These extra bytes in the license file cause it to be unusable during license installation. To work around this issue, you can use a text editor to remove the extra characters and then install the license file. For more information about UTF-8 encoding, go to this URL: http:/​/​www.w3.org/​International/​questions/​qa-utf8-bom.


Note


The installation process does not install duplicate licenses. This message appears when duplicate licenses are detected:

Installing...Feature:xxx-xxx-xxx...Skipped:Duplicate


Note


A standby device reboots twice when there is a mismatch of licenses.
SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    Obtain the PAK.

    2.    enable

    3.    show license udi

    4.    Convert the PAK to a license by entering the PAK and the UDI into the Cisco Product License Registration portal: http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​go/​license.

    5.    license install stored-location-url

    6.    configure terminal

    7.    license boot level {metroaggrservices}

    8.    write memory

    9.    reload


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1 Obtain the PAK.  

    The PAK is provided to you when you order or purchase the right to use a feature set for a particular platform.

    • The PAK serves as a receipt and is used as part of the process to obtain a license.

     
    Step 2 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.

     
    Step 3 show license udi


    Example:
    Device# show license udi
     

    Displays all the UDI values that can be licensed in a system.

    • You need the UDI of the device as part of the process to obtain a license.

     
    Step 4 Convert the PAK to a license by entering the PAK and the UDI into the Cisco Product License Registration portal: http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​go/​license.  

    After entering the appropriate information, you will receive an e-mail containing the license information that you can use to install the license:

    • Copy the license file received from the Cisco Product License Registration portal to the appropriate file system on the device.

    or

    • Click the Install button on the web page.

     
    Step 5 license install stored-location-url


    Example:
    Device# license install tftp://infra-sun/<user>/license/5400/38a.lic
     

    Installs the license.

    • Accept the end-user license agreement if prompted.

     
    Step 6 configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters the global configuration mode.

     
    Step 7 license boot level {metroaggrservices}


    Example:
    Device(config)# license boot level metroaggrservices
     

    Activates the metroaggrservices license on the device upon the next reload.

     
    Step 8 write memory


    Example:
    Device# write memory
     

    Saves the running configuration to NVRAM.

     
    Step 9 reload


    Example:
    Device# reload
     

    (Optional) Restarts the device to enable the new feature set.

    Note   

    A reload is not required when moving from an evaluation license to a permanent license of the same license level on ASR 903 routers.

     

    Managing Licenses by Using Software Activation Commands

    Adding a Comment to a License File

    SUMMARY STEPS

      1.    enable

      2.    license comment add feature-name comment [switch switch-num]

      3.    show license file [switch switch-num]


    DETAILED STEPS

      Step 1 enable


      Example:
      Device> enable
       

      Enables privileged EXEC mode.

      • Enter your password if prompted.

       
      Step 2 license comment add feature-name comment [switch switch-num]


      Example:
      Device# license comment add gsmamrnb-codec-pack “Use this permanent license”
       

      Adds or deletes information about a specific license.

      • (Only on Cisco Catalyst 3750-E switch platforms) If a switch number is specified, this command is executed on the specified switch.

      • When the license is present in license storage and multiple license lines are stored, you are prompted to select a license line. To select the license, type the number at the Select Index to Add Comment prompt.

       
      Step 3 show license file [switch switch-num]


      Example:
      Device# show license file
       

      Displays comments added to a Cisco software license file.

      • If the device is a switch, this command obtains statistics from the specified switch.

       

      Saving All Licenses to a Specified Storage Area

      SUMMARY STEPS

        1.    enable

        2.    license save file-sys://lic-location [switch switch-num]


      DETAILED STEPS
         Command or ActionPurpose
        Step 1 enable


        Example:
        Device> enable
         

        Enables privileged EXEC mode.

        • Enter your password if prompted.

         
        Step 2 license save file-sys://lic-location [switch switch-num]


        Example:
        Device# license save flash:all_licenses.lic
         

        Saves copies of all licenses in a device and stores them in a format required by the command in the specified storage location. Saved licenses are restored by using the license install command.

        • lic-location : The license storage location can be a directory or a URL that points to a file system. Use the ? command to see the storage locations supported by your device.

        • (Optional) switch switch-num: sends this request to a specific switch in a switch stack.

         

        Saving License Credential Information Associated with a Device to a Specified Storage Area

        Before You Begin

        Before you can start the rehost or resend process, a device credential is required. Cisco software licensing requires that the license files generated by the Cisco back-end licensing system for its devices be secure and tamper-resistant. Security features are in place to authenticate a license by means of encrypted license credentials. If it becomes necessary to transfer a license from one device to another (which is called rehosting), a permission ticket is required. To generate the permission ticket, the Cisco back-end licensing system requires the device credential information.

        SUMMARY STEPS

          1.    enable

          2.    license save credential file-sys://lic-location [switch switch-num]

          Example:
          Device# license save credential flash:cred.lic
           

          Saves credential information associated with a device to a specified URL.

          • lic-location : The license storage location can be a directory or a URL that points to a file system. Use the ? command to see the storage locations supported by your device.

          • (Optional)switch switch-num: sends this request to a specific switch in a switch stack.

                Removing Licenses by Using Software Activation Commands

                Removing a License Entry from a Permanent License File


                Note


                • The license clear command lists all licenses, but some licenses, such as built-in licenses, cannot be cleared.
                • Only licenses that have been added by using the license install command are removed. Evaluation licenses are not removed.
                • If a license is not in use, the license clear command displays all the licenses related to this feature and prompts you to make a selection. Different prompts are displayed, depending upon whether single or multiple licenses are available in the device. The selected licenses are removed from the device.
                • If a license is in use, the license clear command might fail. However, depending on the application policy using the license, some licenses might be cleared.
                • When a switch is specified, the license clear command is issued on that switch. When a mixed stack platform is used, the primary switch must have installed the minimum licensing features required to support the licensing operations of the secondary switches. When this command is issued from a primary switch, the switch number is required to clear a license on that switch.

                SUMMARY STEPS

                  1.    enable

                  2.    license clear feature-name [switch switch-num]

                  3.    show license detail


                DETAILED STEPS
                   Command or ActionPurpose
                  Step 1 enable


                  Example:
                  Device> enable
                   

                  Enables privileged EXEC mode.

                  • Enter your password if prompted.

                   
                  Step 2 license clear feature-name [switch switch-num]


                  Example:
                  Device# license clear gsmamrnb-codec-pack
                   

                  Removes a license entry from license storage once it has been verified that the license line is valid and was explicitly installed.

                  • The optional switch switch-num keyword and argument send this request to a specific switch in a switch stack.

                  • You must select the index number of the license to clear. Enter the number at the Select Index to Clear prompt.

                   
                  Step 3 show license detail


                  Example:
                  Device# show license detail
                   

                  Verifies that the license has been cleared.

                   

                  Rehosting (Revoking and Transferring) a License

                  Before You Begin

                  Read and understand the license transfer between devices concepts in the “Cisco IOS Software Activation Conceptual Overview” module.

                  Cisco software licensing requires that the license files generated by the Cisco back-end licensing system for its devices be secure and tamper-resistant. Security features are in place to authenticate a license by means of encrypted license credentials. Rehosting requires a permission ticket. To generate the permission ticket, the Cisco back-end licensing system requires the device credential information. Use the license save credential command to save device credential information to a specified file system.

                  SUMMARY STEPS

                    1.    enable

                    2.    license revoke revoke permission-file-url output-rehost-ticket-url


                  DETAILED STEPS
                     Command or ActionPurpose
                    Step 1 enable


                    Example:
                    Device> enable
                     

                    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

                    • Enter your password if prompted.

                     
                    Step 2 license revoke revoke permission-file-url output-rehost-ticket-url


                    Example:
                    Device# license revoke tftp://infra-sun/ramanp/pt.lic flash:rt.lic
                     

                    Revokes and transfers a license by using the permission ticket provided by the Cisco back-end licensing system. It removes the original, permanent license from the device and provides a license for the new device.

                    • An end-user license agreement is displayed for all grace-period licenses in the permission ticket.

                    • You must read and accept the agreement. If you do not accept the agreement, the rehost operation stops.

                      Enables controlled software license debugging activity on a device.

                       
                      Step 6 no debug license {all | core | errors | events}


                      Example:
                      Device# no debug license errors
                       

                      Disables license debugging activity on a device.

                       

                      Configuring Examples for Software Licensing

                      Example: Installing and Upgrading Licenses

                      The following example shows how to use the license install command to install a license saved in TFTP on the device. The display is truncated for easier readability:

                      Device# license install tftp://infra-sun/<user>/license/5400/38a.lic
                      Installing licenses from "tftp://infra-sun/<user>/license/5400/38a.lic"
                      Loading <user>/license/5400/38a.lic from 172.19.211.47 (via GigabitEthernet0/0): !
                      [OK - 1192 bytes]
                      Extension licenses are being installed in the device with UDI "AS54XM-AC-RPS:JAE0948QXKD" for the following features: 
                      	Feature Name: gsmamrnb-codec-pack
                      PLEASE  READ THE  FOLLOWING TERMS  CAREFULLY. . .
                      ACCEPT? [yes/no]: yes
                      Issue 'license feature gsmamrnb-codec-pack' command to enable the license
                      Installing...Feature:gsmamrnb-codec-pack...Successful:Supported

                      Example: Adding a Comment to a License File

                      The following example shows how to use the license comment command to add or delete information about a specific license. The command checks that a license associated with the specified feature is present in license storage. If a switch number is specified, this command is executed on the specified switch.

                      Example: Generic Command Enhanced with Licensing Information

                      The generic commands described in the following sections are enhanced with licensing information:

                      reload

                      The reload command shows the expired licenses, followed by expiring licenses sorted by the period left and end date:

                      Device# reload
                      The following license(s) are expiring or have expired.
                      Features with expired licenses may not work after Reload.
                      Feature: uc,Status: expiring, Period Left: 7  wks 5  days
                      Proceed with reload? [confirm]

                      show running-config

                      The show running-config command displays the unique device identifier (UDI) of a device. If the configuration file was copied from a different device, a warning is displayed upon reload. A UDI mismatch warning is also displayed during reload if the startup-config file has a different UDI than the platform UDI.
