Figure 68-7 Choose Administration > Control Center > Licensing
Step 2 From the Installed Licenses table, click the Install button, as shown in Figure 68-7. The Installed Licenses table explains the current statistics. The columns of information tell the Type of license keys you have installed (which can include ACTIVATION, API-L2VPN, API-L3MPLS, L2VPN, L3MPLS/VPN,MPLSDIAG, TE, TE/BRG, TE/RG, VPLS, VPN); the Size, which is valid for the ACTIVATION (licensed maximum global count of services), TE (number of TE-enabled nodes), or the VPN (maximum number of VPNs licensed); the Usage, which gives the number currently used for the rows; and the Date Updated, which reflects the refresh of the license usage (on an hourly basis, by default).
Note When you purchase Traffic Engineering Management (TEM), you automatically receive TE, TE/BRG, and TE/RG licenses. All of these licenses must be installed to have access to all the Cisco Prime Fulfillment TEM features, including Planning Tools for protection planning (backup tunnels). The TE license serves as an activation license for the maximum number of TE-enabled nodes to be managed by TEM (you purchase licenses and upgrade licenses based on a range of nodes); the TE/RG license enables primary tunnel placement; and the TE/BRG license enables the Fast ReRoute (FRR) protection function.
Note Click Refresh to give the most current status.
Step 3 In the resulting window, as shown in Figure 68-8, "Enter License Key," enter a License Key that you received on your Right to Use paperwork with your product.
Figure 68-8 Enter License Key
Step 4 Click Save.
Your newly installed license appears in an updated version o f the Installed License table, as shown in Figure 68-7.
Step 5 Repeat Step 2, Step 3, and Step 4 for each of the Right to Use documents shipped with your product.
Note When you receive multiple Right to Use documents to upgrade either the ACTIVATION License, which activates and sets the maximum global count of the services, or VPN licenses, which activates and set the maximum number of VPNs, be sure to enter the licenses in the correct order. For example, if you are upgrading from 500 to 3000 global count of the services and there are two steps to get there, enter the license to upgrade from 500 to 1500 and then the license key to upgrade from 1500 to 3000.
