I would like to get more info in regards of the new ISE 2.4 VM license. What will happen to existing ISE customer who are going to ISE 2.4 ? I am interested to know how the new VM license will looks like.
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
you will receive Medium VM licenses. Which means that customers having bought VMs earlier will and installed large appliances will still get licensing warnings.
Since the customer did not have a choice of VMs when ordering this does not seem acceptable to me. But I am still waiting for reply from vm-licensing team.
The "Medium" VM license covers anything up to 16 CPU cores and 64 GB Ram. This is the same size as the SNS3595 ISE appliance and is the largest VM supported until they released the Super MnT in version 2.4. So prior to 2.4 there was nothing larger than the "Medium" sized VM that is permitted by the new 2.4 "Medium" VM License.
If you migrate to 2.4, they upgrade you to the "Medium" VM license. You will not get any VM warnings as it covers the Large sized OVA from 2.3 and below. To clear up any confusion with the new VM Licenses they also removed the "Large" and "Small" wording from the OVA Names.
I can vouch for that @Damien Miller.
I just upgraded a customer to 2.4 recently and the Cisco licensing team provided the new PAKs within hours of the request. They installed just like any other license and the messages went away.
I have yet to try it with a Smart License ISE installation....
Thank you so much for your great input. However my case is a bit complex :)
My customer got old ISE hardware appliance. They bought the appliance in 2014/2015. Is it still possible to get some credit for this appliance when we are moving to virtual ISE appliance ? We will need Medium Size ISE VM :)
I am aware of the TACACS+ story. However I should admit that the sizing of TACACS+ is just nightmare :)
There's not currently any published trade-in credit or entitlement for an old hardware appliance.
Of course the Account Manager and Cisco sales team always have some latitude to make exceptions depending on the opportunity. You would work with them internally.
An SNS-3415 or above is perfectly fine to run all current versions of ISE though.
I opened a TAC case and easily converted an ISE HW license to a VM license. The 3515 and 3595 have been announced EoL. So, now I don't have to worry about replacing the HW. Also, the customer was moving to data centers and going virtual with everything. They didn't want the appliance anymore.
