I don't think it's related but your current IOS has crypto enabled (no "npe" in the filename of the IOS) but the IOS you want to go has no crypto.  Are you sure you got the right filename?

Hi Leo,

thank you for your reply.

My question, if I do the upgradee for IOS XE, the license will expire or not?

I got the right filename with no crypto and with crypto, it doesn't work.



Agreed with what Leo said. Now this message will keep poping up whenever you reload. It isn't related to upgrade. Its related to reload. 

Basically, you enable CME feature while you don't have cme-srst license installed on the router. 

If you upgrade you will continue to run in the eval period until the expiry date.
