Hi Clement,

Hi Clement,

Details about the installation of a vESA can be found here:

http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/security/content_security/virtual_appliances/Cisco_Content_Security_Virtual_Appliance_Install_Guide.pdf

And a guide how to install the license file you already received:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/security/email-security-virtual-appliance/118301-technote-esa-00.html

I hope these information helped.

Regards

Hello,

Hello,

You'll want to follow the 'Obtain a VLN' instructions within this article : Best Practices for Virtual ESA/WSA/SMA License Installation

Once the physical license has been successfully shared with the vESA and you received your license, then you'll want to open up the XML file you received with NotePad++ or WordPad, select-all and then copy/paste into an SSH session using the loadlicense command.

If you have any problems during this process (which is common), then I would suggest opening up a licensing ticket and they should be able to assist you.

Thanks!
