10G license installation on ME 3600X

Hello colleagues,

Could you please help me with one small question. I'm installing 10G license on ME-3600X-24FS-M. This is what I've got before installation:

Switch# sh license

...

Index 3 Feature: 10GEUpgrade
        Period left: 8  weeks 4  days
        License Type: Evaluation
        License State: Active, Not in Use, EULA not accepted
        License Count: Non-Counted
        License Priority: None

Switch#

After the license was installed:

Switch#sh license
....
Index 3 Feature: 10GEUpgrade
        Period left: Life time
        License Type: Permanent
        License State: Active, Not in Use
        License Count: Non-Counted
        License Priority: Medium

Switch#

My question is - why license state is Not in Use. There is no sfp+ installed in the switch. Could this be the reason?

Kind regards,

Oleg Krasnov

10G license installation on ME 3600X

Hi Oleg,

   you would need to change the SDM template for this... (sdm prefer 4 or 3 )...by default the I/O mode is 1 and thus, you will be seeing the 10GEupgrade feature as "Not in Use".

refer link for detailed explanation:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/metro/me3600x_3800x/software/release/15.3_1_S/configuration/guide/swsdm.html#wp1102780

Also, refer to below link for details on license types on ME3600X:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps6568/ps10956/data_sheet_c78-601946.html

you can check your devices current I/O mode by giving "show sdm prefer" cmd.

hope this answers ur query.

Re: 10G license installation on ME 3600X

Hi Suma,

Thanks for your help!

Changing of SDM template covers ME 3600-24CX configuration and this configuration is not valid for ME 3600-24FS-M, that I use.

There is no such options in ME-3600-24FS-M:

Switch#sh sdm prefer ?
  current  show current template configuration
  default  show default template configuration
  ip       show ip template configuration

Switch#

BR,

Oleg

The problem is this:

The output is quite misleading on the 3600’s              .

It’s says evaluation and not in use.

Index: 2        Feature: 10GEUpgrade                       Version: 1.0

        License Type: Evaluation

        License State: Inactive

            Evaluation total period: 8  weeks 4  days

            Evaluation period left: 8  weeks 4  days

            Period used: 0  minute  0  second 

        License Count: Non-Counted

        License Priority: None

        Store Index: 1

        Store Name: Built-In License Storage

Plug in a 10Gig interface:

Plugging in the SFP module will trigger the license and you will be able to use it afterwards.
