Hi everybody, please need your help;
I have this message when I session into the module:
There is no license key installed on the NM-IPS.
The system will continue to operate with the currently installed
signature set. A valid license must be obtained in order to apply
signature updates. Please go to http://www.cisco.com/go/license
to obtain a new license or install a license.
Is this means that after buying the module, we must buy also a new licence?
if yes please what is the precedure.
thank you in advance
Yes, in order to apply new signatures (and sensor software updates) you need a "Services for IPS" Smartnet contract.
The part number varies by service level (8x5 next business day, 4 hour response, 2 hour response etc)
but the 8x5 Next Business Day part number is: CON-SU1-NMEIPSK9
This covers hardware replacement, software updates and signature updates for the term of the contract.
The message is correct however, in that it will continue to operate with the current signatures. You can also get a trial license to use until you get the smartnet contract.
