Nexus 5500 Remove Layer 3 License

Mike Hendriks1
Beginner
Beginner

I have a pair of Nexus 5500 switches that were previously used with layer 3 daughter cards.  I would like to perform an ISSU on them, but am prevented by the presence of the LAN Base license.  I can't seem to find any documentation on how to remove this old layer 3 license from the switch.  Can anyone help?

 

Thanks in advance,

Hello Mike,

 

You can find the details below:

 

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/nx-os/licensing/guide/b_Cisco_NX-OS_Licensing_Guide/b_Cisco_NX-OS_Licensing_Guide_chapter_01.html#task_25130

 

Please refer to the section "unistalling licenses"

 

The syntax as it states is "clear license <license name>

 

"You can only uninstall a permanent license that is not in use. If you try to delete a permanent license that is currently being used, the software rejects the request and issues an error message. "
