Cisco ASA5545 FirePOWER IPS License

Hello Folks,

Need your help to understand the licensing of Cisco ASA5545 FirePOWER IPS.

I have 2 ASA 5545-X with FirePOWER Services, out of the box I have received the ASA 5545-X with FirePOWER Services (ASA5545-CTRL-LIC) on paper.

I have installed Firesight Management Center and installed 2 Control licenses on that.

I have 2 more quantity of Cisco ASA5545 FirePOWER IPS License listed in our BOQ but don't know how to get that.

When I use firesight management center, it shows me as following.

Maximum ASA5545 Licenses
Protection  (Used) 2  (2)
Control  (Used) 2  (2)
URL Filtering  (Used) 0  (0)

Require your prompt help to get out of this issue.

Regards,

Ashish.

My previous statement about

My previous statement about FMCv was incorrect, sorry. You still need a license key for the virtual FMC, even in 6.0. 

I had issues with license activation for FMC 6.x (pop-up that states license is no longer required), but you still have to order the license according to cisco.
