Hi,

Cisco Unified Communications Manager contains a starter license that you can use to begin new installations of Cisco Unified Communications Manager before you install the production license. Starter licenses, which are available in limited quantities, have no expiration date. Please refer below link.

This is no longer true starting with ELM on CUCM 9.0. There are no licenses installed by default and ELM will shutdown the products after a grace period.

A 60 day grace period allows administrators to add users even if insufficient licenses exist within the ELM license pool. If sufficient licenses are not available once the 60 day grace period expires, then the Unified Communications application(s) will no longer allow any further changes; however, the application(s) will continue to function with no loss of service.

Unity Connection will outright halt services when the grace period expires.

Your only path for a permanent lab/demo would be to purchase an NFR kit.

Hi Leondardo

No, at version 8.6 you will be fine. You will have 150 DLUs and 3 node licenses which will not expire. You will not however be able to upgrade your system as the demo licenses are removed if you do.

It's only at version 9.x that these licenses are replaced with a 60 day eval.

Hi Heba,

you can refer the link which says

Licenses in the non-compliant state for Unified Communications Manager are enforced after a 60-day grace period. At the conclusion of the grace period, Unified Communications Manager enforces non-compliance with the following service degradation:

  • Devices and Users cannot be provisioned. Changing the configuration of a user that affects licensing (For example: the Enable IM and Presence and the Enable Mobility check boxes) is not allowed.
  • Devices and Users cannot be de-provisioned. Any configuration changes that involve licensing (For example: disabling IM and Presence or Mobility) is allowed.

By the way, with 9.x you need to order CM9.X-K9-LAB, SW CM 9.X Lab Only, 20 CUWL PRO, 5 TP Room after the 60 days eval.

Hi !
I've just installed CUCM 9.1 and I've applied for demo/evaluation licenses from Cisco using ELM (Enterprise License Manager).
Now I have :

20 X CUWL Professional (9.x) Unified CM
5 X TelePresence Room (9.x) Unified CM
20 X CUWL Professional Messaging (9.x) Unity Connection

ELM reports that above licenses are valid for 6 months and not for 60 days. Seems Cisco exended demo usage time to 6 months.
I don't know what happens after expiration or if I have any chance for time extention for my LAB licenses.

What do you mean by not being able to upgrade?
