Hi @Anwar Safian

If you use the N9K in production, the licensing is always mandatory. If you use it for lab, then nobody will ask anything, and all features will work since licensing is honor based.

Depending on the features you are interested, you can check this guide: 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#concept_A21339E151D445DE858588C4664277A0

 

Stay safe,

Sergiu
