Licensing on C9200-24T


We purchased, C9200-24T , that currently runs with evaluation license. It is understood that smart licensing should be enabled before expiry of eval licensing (starting with code 16.9.1) . However i would like to know what happens if i did not renew it, will it work with atleast LAN base?

Re: Licensing on C9200-24T

As far as I know this applies only to DNA licences, network essential or network advantage licenses are lifetime ones and never expires, as it's always been for all cisco ios devices.

However issueing a show license on a not registered device tells you "eval expired" or something like that, but features still works.
