DNA Essentials. Do I need it?

ceva156

I was notified from Cisco that my C9300 DNA Essentials is about to expire. Product number C9300-DNA-E-48=.

We're a small shop, and if I recall correctly, we were required to purchase DNA with the switch as a mandated SKU. If I understand correctly, "DNA" is their centralized management tool with automation capability. Again, small shop here. I may go into the switch to change VLAN's here and there, but otherwise it's in a "set it and forget it" mode.

Therefore, I don't believe I need to renew this. Tech support is covered under Smartnet, I believe, right?

If you do not have DNAC environment, then i would ignore that, since Switch basically ship with Eseenrial License perpetual, so not to worry much, that you get compliance alerts. but switch works as expected.

yes smartnet cover for replacement and support.
