I like to buy a Cisco ASR 1001-X on eBay with 20G throughput, AES, Firewall and IPSec. As far as I know all licenses on the ASR 1001-X platform are honor-based. So how can I make sure (check) that the seller has licensed the features and not just has activated them without licensing? In the past there were PAK certificates I requested from the sellers. But how can I check this with the new RTU licenses?
I personally i do not recommend to buy from ebay, since iam sure cisco do not support some kit bought from ebay.
rather i buy from cisco partner ? not sure how large price difference between Partner and Ebay ?
Here is the License check for reference.
Agreed as long as business can take risk, and no support you get from cisco if you do not have smartnet contract.
