Hi,

As I know the license key is depend on DC. If we replace the sensor and use the same DC, how can we get the new license key to transfer the license?

Hi Jackson,

If you are using the same DC and just replace the sensor, you will not need to re-host the License. The License is dependent on the License Key of the DC. So if you do not change the DC, you will not need to re-host the License for your sensors.

Thanks,

Hi Pujita/Jackson,

 

If my customer has 2 IPS with their Serial numbers and The FirePOWER 7115 Control License SKU & PAK (Perpetual) which were installed on a current FMC, right now, this FMC will be deprecated, and the newest one has no the licenses, my question is:

 

1. Do the new FMC need internet connection to process the "Re-Host" process and generate the new licenses to the new FMC?

2. The steps described on the document you shared  in this post, can be performed by the customer or do they need to open a TAC case to request this?

 

regards!

Hi Merv, 

The License registration Portal interface has been updated, therefore the process has been changed.

Could you please update the process posted here?

 

Thanks,

I won't be physically sending the defective device to Cisco so I won't have an RMA#, so will these steps still work to transfer a license from a failed device to a replacement device?
 
Thanks

Hi Luis,

It will work, RMA# is not a mandatory field.

Please try it.

Thanks,

Thanks for the straight answer!

One more question. I want to try this myself before I add these steps to a document for my field techs. 

I have 2 working WLCs, if I try this, will the WLC reported as 'defective' will be tagged as so in Cisco's database and no longer be able to receive support for it? 

 

I see how some people might be able to take advantage of this in order to use the same license on multiple devices. 

 

Thanks again.

Hi Luis,

That is correct, once you transfer the license to new device all license support for old device will no more exist. 

So you cannot take advantage of using same license on multiple devices.

 

Thanks,
