Upon initial installation, the software runs on a temporary 30-day license. Customers ordering EMS-ARM-1.1-KIT with managed node licenses can download permanent Cisco Element Manager licenses via Cisco.com using a Product Authorization Key (PAK) shipped with the Access Router Manager package by following the steps below.

Up to 50 concurrent users can be supported by installing at least one presentation server (client) system for every 10-user sessions (the client software required is included in EMS-ARM-1.1-KIT, and it does not require any additional licensing)

Customers ordering EMS-ARM-D= may evaluate the Cisco Access Router Manager for 30 days free of charge.

To request the required permanent license key file, you must do the following:

Go to Cisco.com at http://www.cisco.com/

From the menu at the top of the page select Technical Support: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/index.html

Fill in all required fields (denoted by an asterisk) in the Contact Information section of the License request form that will require inputting the PAK number. If you are a reseller ordering licenses for a customer, please note the final end user in the order and license request.

Select the version of the CEMF (not the version of the EMS) in the Version number field.

If it was not automatically filled in for you when you filled in the Contact Information, specify the Product Authorization Key (PAK) number. The PAK is provided on the CEMF product CD sleeve and shipping carton.

Specify the hostname of the server where the CEMF product is installed. You can obtain the server's hostname by typing the hostname command at the CEMF server's command line prompt.

Specify the host ID (a hexadecimal string that starts with "8", that identifies the system; this is not the IP address) of the server where the CEMF product is installed. You can obtain the server's host ID by typing the hostid command at the CEMF server's command line prompt.

Please also provide answers to the questions at the end of the form, and then click on the Enter Form button. The License Request form is submitted. The CEMF permanent license key file is returned to you as an email attachment.

Go to the "Updating a CEMF License" section in "Installation, Configuration, and licensing "documentation for instructions on how to replace a temporary license with the permanent license.

Once CEMF has been upgraded to use a permanent license key, the software will continue to run without the need for any further licensing changes.
