Licensing on N9K-C93180YC-EX

Hi

According to the provided datasheet for Nexus 93180YC-EX, IF we want to use all 48 ports on the switch we have to have a license. Is this really necessary? or It is related to another product?

Thank you

Peyman

I believe you are referring to 93180YC-EX-24 (not 93180YC-EX) which is a platform released with 48 usable ports however only 24 are "unlocked" by default and to extend the support to 48 ports, additional license is required :

"
*Licensed to use any 24 downlink ports (total number of ports = 48) and 6 uplink ports. Upgrade to a 48-port license by installing an upgrade license N9K-FX-24P-UPG= or N9K-EX-24P-UPG=. Please refer to the Cisco NX-OS License Guide for details.
