On-Demand Port Activation Licensing


This chapter describes how to use the on-demand port activation licensing feature on the Cisco MDS 9124 Fabric Switch, the Cisco MDS 9134 Fabric Switch, the Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem, and the Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter. This chapter contains the following sections:

About On-Demand Port Activation Licensing

Configuring Port Activation Licenses

On-Demand Port Activation License Example

About On-Demand Port Activation Licensing

As of Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 3.1(1), you can expand your SAN connectivity as needed by enabling users to purchase and install additional port licenses. By default, all ports are eligible for license activation. On the Cisco MDS 9124 Fabric Switch, licenses are allocated sequentially. However, you can move or reassign licenses to any eligible port on the switch.

On the Cisco MDS 9134 Fabric Switch, the first 32 ports operate at 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, or 4 Gbps. The switch has two ports that operate at 10 Gbps. Licenses are allocated sequentially.

On the Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem and the Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter, licenses for internal ports are allocated as the ports come up. Licenses for external ports are allocated sequentially.

Port-Naming Conventions

Table 4-1 describes the port-naming conventions for the four Cisco Fabric switches.

Table 4-1 Port-Naming Conventions for Cisco Fabric Switches

Cisco MDS 9124 Switch
Cisco MDS 9134 Switch
Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem
Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter

fc1/1 through fc1/24

fc1/1 through fc1/34

Internal ports: bay1 through bay16

Internal ports: bay1 through bay14

External ports: ext1 through ext8

External ports: ext0 and ext15 through ext19


Port Licensing

On the Cisco MDS 9124 Switch, the first eight ports are licensed by default. You are not required to perform any tasks beyond the default configuration unless you prefer to immediately activate additional ports, make ports ineligible, or move port licenses.

Figure 4-1 shows the ports that are licensed by default for the Cisco MDS 9124 Switch.

Figure 4-1 Cisco MDS 9124 Switch Default Port Licenses (fc1/1 - fc1/8)

If you need additional connectivity, you can activate additional ports in 8-port increments with each on-demand port activation license, up to a total of 24 ports.

On the Cisco MDS 9134 Switch, the first 24 ports that can operate at 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, or 4 Gbps are licensed by default. If you need additional connectivity, you can activate the remaining eight ports with one on-demand port activation license. A separate 10G license file is required to activate the remaining two 10-Gbps ports.

Figure 4-2 shows the ports that are licensed by default for the Cisco MDS 9134 Switch.

Figure 4-2 Cisco MDS 9134 Switch Default Port Licenses (fc1/1 - fc1/24)

Figure 4-3 shows the external ports that are licensed by default for the Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem.

Figure 4-3 Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem Default Port Licenses (ext1 - ext4)

On the Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem, any eight internal ports andthe external ports (ext1 through ext4) are licensed by default. A single on-demand port activation license is required to use the remaining eight internal and four external ports.

On the Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter, any seven internal ports and the external ports( ext0, ext15 and ext16) are licensed by default. A single on-demand port activation license is required to use the remaining seven internal and three external ports.

Figure 4-4 shows the external ports that are licensed by default for the Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter.

Figure 4-4 Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter Default Port Licenses (ext0, ext15 - ext16)

If you do not prefer to accept the default behavior and would rather assign a license to a specific port, make the port ineligible to receive a license, or move licenses among ports, refer to the "Configuring Port Activation Licenses" section.

Configuring Port Activation Licenses

This section contains the following topics:

Making a Port Eligible for a License

Acquiring a License for a Port

Moving Licenses Among Ports

Making a Port Eligible for a License

By default, all ports are eligible to receive a license. However, if a port has already been made ineligible and you prefer to activate it, then you must make that port eligible by using the port-license command.

To make a port eligible to acquire a license, follow these steps:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

switch# config t

switch(config)#

Enters configuration mode.

Step 2 

switch(config)# interface fc1/1

switch(config-if)#

Specifies the port interface that you want to make eligible for a license.

Note The name of the port depends on the switch you are using. See "Port-Naming Conventions" section for information on port names.

Step 3 

switch(config-if)# port-license

Makes the port eligible to acquire a license.

 

switch(config-if)# no port-license

Removes a license from a port if it already has been assigned, and also makes the port ineligible to acquire a license.

Note You can remove licenses only from ports that are not in an administrative shutdown state.

Acquiring a License for a Port

If you do not prefer to accept the default on-demand port license assignments, you will need to first acquire licenses for ports to which you want to move the license.

To acquire a license for a port, follow these steps:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

switch# config t
switch(config)#

Enters configuration mode.

Step 2 

switch(config)# interface fc1/1

switch(config-if)#

Specifies the port interface for which you want to acquire a license.

Note The name of the port depends on the switch you are using. See "Port-Naming Conventions" section for information on port names.

Step 3 

switch(config-if)# port-license acquire

Grants a license to a port or range of ports.

 

switch(config-if)# no port-license

Removes a license from a port or range of ports.

Moving Licenses Among Ports


Note On the Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem and the Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter, you can only move the license for internal ports among internal ports. Licenses from an internal port cannot be moved to an external port and vice versa. Licenses for external ports can only be moved among external ports.


You can move a license from a port (or range of ports) at any time. If you attempt to move a license to a port and no license is available, then the switch returns the message "port activation license not available."


Note Once internal ports are licensed on the Cisco Fabric Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem or the Cisco Fabric Switch for IBM BladeCenter, if the user enters the copy running-config startup-config command, then on the next reload, these ports will retain the licenses.


To move a license from one port to another (in this example, from fc1/1 to fc1/24), follow these steps:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

switch# config t

switch(config)#

Enters configuration mode.

Step 2 

switch(config)# interface fc1/1

switch(config-if)#

Specifies the port interface from which you want to move a license.

Note The name of the port depends on the switch you are using. See the "Port-Naming Conventions" section for information on port names.

Step 3 

switch(config-if)# no port-license

Removes the license from port fc1/1 and makes the port ineligible to acquire a license.

Note The port needs to be shut down for this command to take effect.

Step 4 

switch(config-if)# exit

switch(config)#

Exits interface mode for fc1/1.

Step 5 

switch(config)# interface fc1/24

switch(config-if)#

Specifies the port interface to which you want to move the license.

Note The name of the port depends on the switch you are using. See "Port-Naming Conventions" section for information on port names.

Step 6 

switch(config-if)# port-license acquire

Grants a license to port fc1/24.

Note The port needs to be shut down for this command to take effect.

Step 7 

switch(config-if)# end

Returns to EXEC mode.

On-Demand Port Activation License Example

The following example shows how to do the following tasks:

Make a port ineligible

Install port activation licenses

Move licenses from one port to another

If you do not want to accept the default behavior, or you need flexibility in terms of which ports acquire a license, you may want to make a port ineligible. For example, if the first eight ports have a license, but you want to move a license from port 7 to port 9, then you would need to make a port ineligible. Or, if you have a port that should never acquire a license, you can make it ineligible and it will not be a candidate for a license when additional licenses are installed.

This example is based on the default configuration for the Cisco MDS 9124 Switch.

Step 2 Install an additional license package. See "Obtaining and Installing Licenses," for information about how to obtain and install the PORT_ACTIVATION_PKG and license key file.

switch# install license bootflash:license_file.lic
Installing license ..done


Note If you provide a target name for the license key file, the file is installed with the specified name. Otherwise, the filename specified in the license key file is used to install the license.


Step 3 Make port fc1/8 ineligible to receive a license.


Note When you make a port ineligible, the license does not automatically transfer to another port.


switch# config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
switch(config)# interface fc1/8
switch(config-if)# no port-license
switch(config-if)# end
switch# show port-license
Available port activation licenses are 1

   fc1/9      16809984           eligible
   fc1/10     16814080           eligible

Step 4 Display the licensed features to confirm that you have successfully installed PORT_ACTIVATION_PKG.

switch# show license default

switch# ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 5 Display the port license configuration to confirm that additional ports have acquired a license.


Note Port fc1/8 remains ineligible and one license remains available. Ports fc1/9 through fc1//16 have acquired an additional license.


switch# show port-license

   fc1/23     16867328           eligible
   fc1/24     16871424           eligible

Step 6 Move the remaining license to port fc1/17.

switch# config t
switch(config)# interface fc1/17
switch(config-int)# port-license acquire

Step 7 Display the port license configuration to confirm that port fc1/17 has acquired a license.

switch# show port-license
Available port activation licenses are 0

Step 8 Make this configuration your startup configuration by saving the new port license configuration into nonvolatile storage. Once you complete this step, the running and the startup copies of the configuration are identical.

switch# copy running-config startup-config

Step 9 Display and/or confirm the licenses in the running configuration by entering the show running config command.

switch# show running config
