Feature Information for Cisco IOS Software Activation

Restrictions for Cisco IOS Software Activation

Not all Cisco router and switch 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

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 (required)

Managing Licenses by Using Software Activation Commands (optional)

Removing Licenses by Using Software Activation Commands (optional)

Troubleshooting License Operations by Using Software Activation Commands (optional)

Installing and Upgrading Licenses by Using Software Activation Commands

Use this task to install or upgrade a license by using the software activation commands.

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.

Prerequisites

Read and understand the concepts in the "License Activation Process" section of the Cisco IOS Software Activation Conceptual Overview module.

You can perform this task to install or upgrade a license by using the Cisco IOS 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 Cisco IOS license save command).

Prerequisites

Before you can start the rehost or resend process, a device credential is required. Cisco IOS 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.

Removing a License Entry from a Permanent License File

Perform this task to remove a license entry from a permanent license file.

Restrictions

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 router or switch.

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
