This document describes the activation process for Cisco software on Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISRs) and Cisco Integrated Service Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2), and Cisco Integrated Service Routers 4K (ISR 4K). Cisco routers support Cisco IOS software entitlement and enforcement on various platforms. This document supports the following products:

 

Modular ISRs

  • Cisco ISR 4400 Series
  • Cisco ISR 4300 Series
  • Cisco ISR 3900 Series
  • Cisco ISR 2900 Series
  • Cisco ISR 1900 Series

Fixed ISRs

  • Cisco ISR 890 Series
  • Cisco ISR 880 Series
  • Cisco ISR 860 Series
  • Cisco ISR 810 Series

Finding Support Information for Platforms and Cisco IOS and Catalyst OS Software Images

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

Before You Begin

When you order a new router, it is shipped preinstalled with the software image and the corresponding permanent licenses for the packages and features that you specified. You do not need to activate or register the software before use.

The following prerequisites apply if you are upgrading or installing a new Cisco IOS software license on Cisco ISRs:


Tip Use the show license feature command to view the software packages and features supported on your router. Table 2, Table 3, and Table 5 list the package and feature licenses available for your router.



Tip Use the show license command in privileged EXEC mode to display information about the Cisco IOS software packages and features license level on your router.



Note Starting from Release 15.4(1)T, the license-level appxk9 is removed from the license boot module command and licensing show commands for the Cisco 3900, 2900, and 1900 Series Routers. The license-level appxk9 is available for Cisco ISR 4400 and ISR 4300 routers in the license boot level command.


Cisco IOS Software Releases Supported

The following Cisco IOS software releases support software activation on Cisco ISRs:

  • Cisco 3900 series, 2900 series, and 1900 series ISRs running Cisco IOS Release 15.0(1)M.

Cisco 3925E and Cisco 3945E ISR running Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)T.

  • Right to Use license is supported on Cisco IOS Release 15.0(1)M4, 15.1(1)T2, 15.1(2)T2, 15.1(3)T, 15.1(4)M1, or later.
  • Cisco 800 series ISRs running Cisco IOS Release 12.4(15)XZ or later support either the non-cryptographic image or the cryptographic image.
  • Cisco 800 series ISRs running Cisco IOS Release images earlier than Cisco IOS Release 12.4(15)XZ do not support software activation.
  • Cisco One Suite License is supported only on Cisco 3900 series, 2900 series, and 1900 series ISRs running Cisco IOS Release 15.5(1)T.

Information About Software Activation on Cisco ISRs, ISRs G2, and ISR 4K

The Cisco IOS universal image contains all packages and features in one image. You can access the required functionality based on the license installed on your router.

Software Claim Certificate and License Activation

Software Claim Certificates are used for licenses that require software activation. The claim certificate provides the Product Activation Key (PAK) for your license and important information regarding the Cisco End User License Agreement (EULA).

In most cases, Cisco or your Cisco partner will have already activated the licenses ordered at the time of purchase and no Software Claim Certificate is provided. You can determine the licenses activated on your system by issuing the show license feature command on the router command-line interface (CLI) or with a Cisco management application such as Cisco CP or Cisco License Manager (CLM). Cisco License Manager is a free software application available at http://www.cisco.com/go/clm .

Right to Use Notification

When you order a license from Cisco, you will receive a Right to Use Notificaton. You may begin using the licensed features upon receipt of the Right to Use Notification. Keep the Right to Use Notification for your records as proof of your license purchase.

Universal Device Identifier

The universal device identifier (UDI) has two main components: the product ID (PID) and the serial number (SN). Cisco ISR 4K Series use Route Processor serial number (SN). Cisco 3900 Series platforms, which have field-replaceable unit (FRU) motherboards, use motherboard’s PID and SN. All other platforms use the chassis PID and SN.

The PID and SN are printed on a label located on the back of most Cisco hardware devices or on a label tray visible on the front panel of field-replaceable motherboards. See your router’s Hardware Installation Guide or Read Me First to see the location of the label.


Tip The Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool provides detailed illustrations and descriptions showing where to locate serial number labels on Cisco products. The Cisco Product Identification tool can be accessed at http://tools.cisco.com/Support/CPI/index.do


The UDI can be viewed using the show license udi command in privileged Exec mode.

UDI Example for 3900

The following example shows the output from the show license udi command on a Cisco 3925 ISR:

Router#show license udi
Device# PID SN UDI

Router#
 

Evaluation License

Your router comes with the evaluation license, also known as a temporary license, for most packages and features supported on your router. If you want to try a new software package or feature, activate the evaluation license for that package or feature.

Right to Use License

Right to Use licenses are available on Cisco IOS Release 15.0(1)M4, 15.1(1)T2, 15.1(2)T2, 15.1(3)T, 15.1(4)M1, or later. These licenses are available on the honor system.

Permanent License

If you want to permanently activate a software package or feature on your router, you must get a new software license.

Figure 1 shows the steps for software activation.

Figure 1 Steps for Software Activation

 

You can also activate the license using the license right-to-use move command. Perform the following tasks to activate the license:


Step 1 Purchase License

Step 2 Activate Evaluation License

Step 3 Run the license right-to-use move command


Note This method is not applicable for HSEC and LI licenses.


End User License Agreement

By accessing or using the Cisco products received with your Cisco ISR, ISR G2 or ISR 4K, you agree that your use of such products is governed by the terms and conditions of the Cisco Software License and any applicable supplemental license agreement. A copy of the terms of the End User License Agreement (EULA) is available at

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/general/warranty/English/EU1KEN_.html.

A EULA is presented for acceptance when you activate an evaluation license.

Software Packages and Features

The Cisco IOS universal image contains all packages and features in one image. The universal image on the Cisco 1900, 2900, 3900, 4300, and 4400 series ISRs are a superset of Cisco IOS simplified technology packages.

Each package is a grouping of technology-specific features. Multiple technology package licenses can be installed and activated on the Cisco 1900, 2900, 3900, 4300 and 4400 series ISR platforms.

Individual features can be enabled or disabled by license keys. Feature licenses may be subscription-based, uncounted, or count-based licenses.


Tip Use the show license feature command to view the technology package licenses and feature licenses supported on your router.


The Cisco ISR 1900, 2900, 3900, 4300, and 4400 series support the following universal images:

  • universalk9—offers all IOS features supported by next generation ISRs.
  • universalk9_npe—does not support VPN payload and secure voice functionality and satisfies import considerations for CIS countries.

Table 1 lists the image names for the Cisco 1900, 2900, 3900, 4300, and 4400 series routers.

Options for Getting and Managing Software Licenses

There are multiple options for getting and managing the software licenses on your router. Use one of the following options to get and manage software licenses on your router:

Cisco License Manager

For a network-wide deployment, the Cisco License Manager can automate all license-related work flows by securely communicating with the licensing back-end fulfillment systems at Cisco.com and deploying the obtained licenses to managed devices on a network-wide basis. The application also keeps an inventory of deployed licenses and generates license reports.

Cisco License Manager is available at no cost and can be downloaded by registered Cisco.com users from http://www.cisco.com/go/clm .

For additional information on Cisco License Manager, see the Cisco Software Activation Conceptual Overview chapter in Cisco IOS Software Activation Configuration Guide and the documents at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps7138/tsd_products_support_series_home.html.

Cisco Smart Licensing

Smart Licensing Client feature is a standardized licensing platform that simplifies the Cisco software experience and helps you to understand how Cisco software is used across your network. Smart Licensing is the next generation licensing platform for all Cisco software products.

For additional information on Cisco Smart Licensing, see Cisco Smart Licensing Client .

Cisco License Call Home

You can interact directly with the Cisco Product License Registration portal from your device by using the Cisco License Call Home interface. This interface is included with the Cisco Software Activation feature and described in the Cisco Software Activation Conceptual Overview and the Configuring Cisco License Call Home chapters in Cisco IOS Software Activation Configuration Guide .

The License Call Home feature works as a client or server model. Each transaction requires a separate connection to the Cisco licensing infrastructure. The License Call Home feature displays prompts for obtaining required information, converting that information into a defined data structure, and then connecting to the Cisco licensing back-end to interact with the Cisco licensing infrastructure. A request is initiated by a License Call Home EXEC command, and the response is provided by the Cisco licensing infrastructure.

This section contains the following topics:

Before You Begin

Your router must have an Internet connection and use HTTPS to connect to the Cisco licensing infrastructure.

Platform Support

Only certain platforms support the Cisco License Call Home function and must run a Cisco IOS crypto K9 image.

For information about platform support, see the Configuring Cisco License Call Home chapter in Cisco IOS Software Activation Configuration Guide.

Installing a License Using License Call Home


Note Purchase the software feature or package you want to install. You receive a product activation key (PAK) with your purchase.


To install a license using the License Call Home feature, follow these steps:


Step 1 Use the show license call-home pak EXEC command to display the SKU list and features available for the PAK provided.

Step 2 Use the license call-home install pak command to install a license by using the Cisco License Call Home function.

a. Complete the license installation by entering yes when prompted to install the license and then entering the information requested.

Configuring the EULA

Use the license accept end user agreement command in global configuration mode to configure a one-time acceptance of the EULA for all Cisco IOS software packages and features. After the command is issued and the EULA accepted, the EULA is automatically applied to all Cisco IOS software licenses; the EULA is not displayed and the user is not prompted to accept the EULA.

The following example shows how to configure a one-time acceptance of the EULA:

Router(config)#license accept end user agreement
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY. INSTALLING THE LICENSE OR
LICENSE KEY PROVIDED FOR ANY CISCO PRODUCT FEATURE OR USING SUCH
PRODUCT FEATURE CONSTITUTES YOUR FULL ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING
TERMS. YOU MUST NOT PROCEED FURTHER IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO BE BOUND
BY ALL THE TERMS SET FORTH HEREIN.
 
Use of this product feature requires an additional license from Cisco,
together with an additional payment. You may use this product feature
on an evaluation basis, without payment to Cisco, for 60 days. Your use
of the product, including during the 60 day evaluation period, is
subject to the Cisco end user license agreement
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/general/warranty/English/EU1KEN_.html
If you use the product feature beyond the 60 day evaluation period, you
must submit the appropriate payment to Cisco for the license. After the
60 day evaluation period, your use of the product feature will be
governed solely by the Cisco end user license agreement (link above),
together with any supplements relating to such product feature. The
above applies even if the evaluation license is not automatically
terminated and you do not receive any notice of the expiration of the
evaluation period. It is your responsibility to determine when the
evaluation period is complete and you are required to make payment to
Cisco for your use of the product feature beyond the evaluation period.
 
Your acceptance of this agreement for the software features on one
product shall be deemed your acceptance with respect to all such
software on all Cisco products you purchase which includes the same
software. (The foregoing notwithstanding, you must purchase a license
for each software feature you use past the 60 days evaluation period,
so that if you enable a software feature on 1000 devices, you must
purchase 1000 licenses for use past the 60 day evaluation period.)
 
Activation of the software command line interface will be evidence of
your acceptance of this agreement.

RTU Migration

This section describes customer scenarios with regard to migrating to Existing or Lifetime RTU release and recommends actions to take before upgrading.

The initial version of RTU release (Existing RTU) contains built-in evaluation licenses valid for 12 years and Lifetime RTU licenses that are similar to permanent licenses, in that they are built into the IOS image and avoid the overhead of license installation.


Note Permanent licenses are not affected by any IOS release upgrade.


The first course of action is to consider what release your router is running and then follow the recommended actions if any. This section contains the following topics:

RTU Releases

The IOS software releases to consider are categorized as follows:

  • Preceding RTU
  • Existing RTU
  • Lifetime RTU

Preceding RTU

Preceding RTU releases are customers’ running IOS releases with 60 days of evaluation licenses. These include the following releases:

  • 15.0(1)M; 15.0(1)M1; 15.0(1)M2; 15.0(1)M3
  • 15.1(1)T; 15.1(1)T1
  • 15.1(2)T; 15.1(2)T1
  • Any 12.4T release

Customers running these releases with evaluation licenses and planning to upgrade to Existing or Lifetime RTU releases are affected. They should follow the recommended actions specified under Preceding RTU to Existing/Lifetime migration paths.

Existing RTU

Initial RTU support was provided in the Existing RTU releases listed below:

  • 15.0(1)M4; 15.0(1)M5
  • 15.1(1)T2; 15.1(1)T3
  • 15.1(2)T2; 15.1(2)T3
  • 15.1(3)T; 15.1(3)T1
  • 15.1(4)M

Such arrangement basically provided 12-year evaluation licenses and was intended to be a temporary solution until Lifetime RTU support was available. This temporary RTU solution provided immediate relief for customers facing licensing-related overhead.

If you are running Existing RTU releases and planning to upgrade to Lifetime RTU releases, please follow the recommended actions specified under Existing RTU to Lifetime RTU migration paths.

Lifetime RTU

A Lifetime RTU release license includes the following:

1. Initial evaluation period of 60 days

2. Transition to Lifetime RTU license without customer intervention

RTU transition warning/complete Syslogs/Traps are provided 10 days and 5 days before transition and on the actual day of transition.

Customers running the following Lifetime RTU releases are not impacted:

  • 15.0(1)M6 or later
  • 15.1(1)T4 or later
  • 15.1(2)T4 or later
  • 15.1(3)T2 or later
  • 15.1(4)M1 or later
  • 15.2(1)T or later

Global EULA Acceptance

Customers migrating to Lifetime RTU are required to accept the global end user license agreement with the Exising RTU release. This is because the Lifetime RTU keys have changed and EULA needs to be accepted again to ensure a smooth transition.

Please perform the following actions when required:

Router(config)# license accept end user agreement
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY. INSTALLING THE LICENSE OR
LICENSE KEY PROVIDED FOR ANY CISCO PRODUCT FEATURE OR USING SUCH
PRODUCT FEATURE CONSTITUTES YOUR FULL ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING
TERMS. YOU MUST NOT PROCEED FURTHER IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO BE BOUND
BY ALL THE TERMS SET FORTH HEREIN.
 
Use of this product feature requires an additional license from Cisco,
together with an additional payment. You may use this product feature
on an evaluation basis, without payment to Cisco, for 60 days. Your use
of the product, including during the 60 day evaluation period, is
subject to the Cisco end user license agreement
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/general/warranty/English/EU1KEN_.html
If you use the product feature beyond the 60 day evaluation period, you
must submit the appropriate payment to Cisco for the license. After the
60 day evaluation period, your use of the product feature will be
governed solely by the Cisco end user license agreement (link above),
together with any supplements relating to such product feature. The
above applies even if the evaluation license is not automatically
terminated and you do not receive any notice of the expiration of the
evaluation period. It is your responsibility to determine when the
evaluation period is complete and you are required to make payment to
Cisco for your use of the product feature beyond the evaluation period.
 
Your acceptance of this agreement for the software features on one
product shall be deemed your acceptance with respect to all such
software on all Cisco products you purchase which includes the same
software. (The foregoing notwithstanding, you must purchase a license
for each software feature you use past the 60 days evaluation period,
so that if you enable a software feature on 1000 devices, you must
purchase 1000 licenses for use past the 60 day evaluation period.)
 
Activation of the software command line interface will be evidence of
your acceptance of this agreement.

RTU Migration Paths

There are basically two IOS release migration paths a typical customer must take to upgrade to Existing or Lifetime RTU release.

1. Preceding RTU Release —> Existing/Lifetime RTU Release

2. Existing RTU Release —> Lifetime RTU Release

Figure 2 shows the steps for migrating to Existing or Lifetime RTU.

Figure 2 Steps for RTU Migration

 

 

Preceding RTU —> Existing/Lifetime RTU Migration Path

This procedure covers customers running IOS Preceding RTU releases with evaluation licenses that have not expired and wishing to migrate to Existing or Lifetime RTU releases.

The Existing/Lifetime RTU license keys have changed and require re-acceptance of the end user license agreement. A migration performed without the recommended upgrade procedure results in a loss of functionality related to features that relied on the presence of Preceding RTU license.

Figure 3 shows the migration path from Preceding RTU to Existing/Lifetime RTU releases.

Figure 3 Preceding RTU to Existing/Lifetime RTU Migration

 

Before upgrading, perform the following steps:


Step 1 On the Preceding RTU router, save the startup-config to a location of your choice—it could be a compact flash, tftp server, etc. Note: If any other configuration is required before upgrade, this must be completed and the configuration should be saved before proceeding with this step. The example below is for a tftp server.

Router# copy startup-config tftp://<tftp_server>/<user_id>/startup-config
 

Step 2 Edit the startup-config and add the “license accept end user agreement” as shown below in bold right after the “license udi pid ….” entry.

license udi pid C3900-SPE250/K9 sn FHH1313001U
license accept end user agreement
 

Step 3 Copy the startup-config back to the Preceding RTU router. The example below is for tftp a server.

Router# copy tftp://<tftp_server>/<user_id>/startup-config startup-config
 

Step 4 Do not save the configuration.

Step 5 Reload the router, without saving the configuration, with the upgrade release, either Existing or Lifetime RTU release. After reload, you can see that the configurations related to licenses are rejected.

Step 6 Do not save the configuration.

Step 7 Immediately reload again, without saving the configuration, with the same Existing or Lifetime RTU release. After reload, all the configurations are preserved.

Step 8 Verify license-related configurationss and feature functionality.


 

Existing RTU —> Lifetime RTU Migration Path

This procedure covers customers running IOS Existing RTU releases with Eval/RTU licenses and wishing to upgrade to Lifetime RTU releases.

The Lifetime RTU license keys have changed and require re-acceptance of the end user license agreement. A migration performed without the recommended upgrade procedure results in a loss of functionality related to features that relied on the presence of Existing RTU release license.

Figure 4 shows the migration path from Preceding RTU to Existing/Lifetime RTU releases.

Figure 4 Existing RTU to Lifetime RTU Migration

 

Before upgrading, perform the following steps:


Note If the global “license accept end user agreement” has already been performed on the Existing RTU release router, then Steps 1 and 2 can be skipped.



Step 1 On the Existing RTU release router, configure the global end user license agreement:

Router#(config) license accept end user agreement
 

Step 2 Save the configuration.

Router# write
 

Step 3 Upgrade to Lifetime RTU IOS Release.


 

Lifetime RTU (After Migration)

Once you migrate to a Lifetime RTU release, as the license keys have changed, the RTU license restarts from time zero. This means that for the first 60 days, the Lifetime RTU license is considered to be in evaluation mode. The show CLI output displays the “EvalRightToUse” for the initial 60 days. An example of this output is shown below.

Router# show license
Index 4 Feature: datak9
Period left: 8 weeks 4 days
Period Used: 0 minute 0 second
License Type: EvalRightToUse
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: Non-Counted
License Priority: Low

 

After approximately 60 days, the Lifetime RTU license transitions to “RightToUse” without any further customer intervention. Syslogs and Traps are sent 10 days and 5 days before transition and on the actual day of transition to provide notice of pending/completion of license transition. After the transition, the show CLI output displays “RightToUse” for the License Type. An example of this output is shown below.

Router# show license
Index 4 Feature: datak9
Period left: Life time
License Type: RightToUse
License State: Active, In Use
License Count: Non-Counted
License Priority: Low

Simple Network Management Protocol

Software licenses can be installed and managed with network management systems using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). For more information on using SNMP, see Cisco IOS Software Activation Configuration Guide

RMA License Transfer

To transfer a software license from a failed device to a new device, go to the Cisco licensing portal at http://www.cisco.com/go/license .


Note You need the UDI of the defective as well as the RMA router to initiate an RMA replacement license.



Note To transfer a software license from a Cisco 3925 or Cisco 3945 ISR, use the SN and PID from the service performance engine (SPE) and not the chassis.


Restoring Configuration Files on RMA Replacement Routers

This section describes the steps for RMA replacement routers if restoration of configuration files is required. This applies to RMA replacement routers received with Lifetime RTU release installed.


Note An RMA router is the router that is sent back to the manufacturer for RMA, while an RMA replacement router is a new router from the manufacturer.


Restoring configuration files on RMA replacement routers is a two-part process.

  • First Part: Restoring Licenses
  • Second Part: Restoring Configurations

First Part: Restoring Licenses

Perform the following steps to bring up your RMA replacement router with the required licenses:


Step 1 It is assumed that the startup-config was already saved, for example to a tftp server, compact flash, etc., before the router was sent for RMA. The example shown below is for a tftp server:

Router# copy startup-config tftp://<tftp_server>/<user_id>/startup-config
 

Step 2 Edit the saved startup-config with any text editor of your choice. Add the “license accept end user agreement” as shown below right after the “license udi pid...” line.

license accept end user agreement
 

Step 3 Copy the startup-config to your RMA replacement router as running config. This step is to bring back your configured licenses from the RMA router. Note that some configurations have been thrown out, although the objective here is to restore the licenses only. The example shown below is for a tftp server:

Router# copy tftp://<tftp_server>/<user_id>/startup-config running-config
 

Step 4 Save the configuration.

Step 5 Reload the RMA replacement router.


 

Second Part: Restoring Configurations

Perform the following steps to restore the configurations on your RMA replacement router:


Step 1 Copy the startup-config to RMA replacement router as running config. This step will restore all the configurations. The example shown below is for a tftp server:

Router# copy tftp://<tftp_server>/<user_id>/startup-config running-config
 

Step 2 Save the configuration.

Step 3 Verify license-related configurations and feature functionality.


 

For additional information on RMA license transfer, see the Cisco Software Activation Conceptual Overview chapter in Cisco IOS Software Activation Configuration Guide .

Disabling Advanced IP Service License on 880 Series SKUs

Perform the following steps to disable the advanced IP service license on 880 series SKUs:


Step 1 license boot module c880-data level advsecurity

Step 2 write mem

Step 3 reload

Step 4 license clear advipservices

Step 5 no license boot module c880-data level advsecurity

Step 6 write mem

Step 7 reload
