Unused Licence / nexus 1000v

Hi

We have two vem installed on two ESX with two CPU.

We have installed 4 licences. Everything works fine but the output of "show licence usage" is different from our other nexus1000v.

# show license usage

Did you know why the status is Unused

I have the same issue. Have you managed to find a solution?

Does anyone have any idea why? Our N1k version is 4.2(1)SV2(1.1a)

thanks

I think I figured out the answer to my own question. With Cisco new free-mium pricing for the 1000v, the switch defaults to the essentials edition and does not consume licenses even when installed (since the essentials edition does not require licenses).

If you type in "svs switch edition advanced", the switch moves to advanced mode and immediately consumes the licenses.

HTH.
