Cisco ACE 4710 Licence Issue

s.mansha

Level 1

Hi,

I urgently need some help/advice on this issue, I have 2 ACE units (4710's) for our development environment, one with 0.5GB licence and the other one has the default 1GB licence (which is not applied). We need to connect these in a redundant manner so as to match our production environment (where both prod. units have 0.5G licence). Can we change (downgrade) the default licence (which is higher spec.) to a 0.5GB licence so that it matches the rest of the units (both in prod. and dev. environments) and get the failover functionality working or will we need to purchase the 0.5GB licence.

Regards

Saj

Here are the details of the licences for the units in question...

Mansha,

You could downgrade/uninstall the license and re-install it later ...
As long as it is a permanent license (i.e. not a demo/temp license),
this should be quite fine.

Mark it if you consider it useful.

Hi Jorge,

ACE01; has the following licence applied:

installed license: ACE-AP-500M-LIC ACE-AP-C-100-LIC ACE-AP-OPT-50-K9 ACE-AP-SSL-100-K9

ACE02; does not have any licence applied, do you know if I can use the above licence from ACE01 on ACE02?

installed license: no feature license is installed.

I am not sure what you mean by downgrade/unistall? would we have to purchase the above licence?

Would really appreciate it if you could reply back a.s.a.p.

Regards

Saj
