"mode border-element license capacity" - do I really need it on my CUBE?
I have purchased 200 licenses, and everything seems to be working fine without this command.
Wondering if one needs it to be hardcoded and what is the purpose of this command?
I've never used that command. I presume it's new, i.e. a first step towards enforcing the licensed amount of connections.
Currently it's honour based, you don't actually load a license, and if you happen to 'burst' over the 25 channels you bought then you'd never notice or care. I guess this would prevent the 26th call in that scenario...
A bit of updated info from an April 2018 doc that incorporates the mode border-element command:
"show cube status
Displays the CUBE status, the software version, the license capacity, the image version, and the platform name of the device. The CUBE status display is enabled only if the mode border-element command is configured with call license capacity."
Device# show cube status CUBE-Version : 10.0.1 SW-Version : 15.4.2.T, Platform 3845 HA-Type : none Licensed-Capacity : 200
