Software Activation Licensing Deployment Guide

 

  1. Introduction

 

On the Catalyst 4500E Supervisor 7-E engine, Cisco Software Activation Licensing (SAL) is a tool that customers use to deploy different IOS features.

 

  1. Overview of Supervisor 7-E and 7L-E Software Licenses

 

Catalyst 4500E Supervisor 7-E and 7L-E, using a common IOS images, including all IOS features from base to Enterprise, enabled by license activation, divided into permanent license and DEMO license, Evaluation License 3, DEMO license is 60 During the trial period, the Evaluation License is a temporary evaluation or emergency test and cannot be used repeatedly.

 

This feature can be used in the 4503-E, 4506-E, 4507R-E, 4507R+E, 4510R-E and 4510R+E chassis

PAK is available in both paper and electronic versions for license downloads for IOS feature activation.

 

  1. Deployment instructions

Supervisor Upgrade to Supervisor 7-E or 7L-E

This scenario details the steps needed to upgrade to Supervisor 7-E or 7L-E.

The PAK activation URL is as follows

http://www.cisco.com/go/license.

After the PAK is registered, you can download the license file. 

The license file can be imported into bootflash through usb, tftp, and RCP.

Use “reloads” for reloading single Supervisor 7-E or 7L-E systems, and use “redundancy reload shelf” for reloading both the active and standby Supervisor 7-E or 7L-E Supervisors, in a redundant supervisor system. Using “reload” on redundant Supervisor systems will cause a switchover and not a to reload of the entire system

"Redundancy Engine Upgrade"

In the chassis of the redundant engine, only one license needs to be ordered, and the two licenses are automatically synchronized to the two engines.

 

Deployment steps 

  • Obtaining a license file through UDI
  • Insert engine / redundant engine
  • Installing a license
  • Configure the required IOS
  • Restart the standby engine
  • In RPR mode, the engine reports a license level mismatch.
  • Initiate RPR switchover
  • Hold the rebooting Supervisor in ROMMON mode, by disabling auto-boot (Ctrl+c)
  • Configure the system to use Permanent license by issuing “no license boot level ipbase | entservices”
  • Configure SSO redundancy mode - this will automatically reboot the standby Supervisor
  • Save configuration

 

l Standby Supervisor boots in IP Base license level and because of SSO the license is automatically installed as part of the bulk synchronization process

Reload the current active engine, enable the standby engine, check if the image is loaded

 

In RPR mode

From the Active Supervisor in slot 6, configure the system to boot using the Permanent license by issuing “no license boot level ipbase” from the IOS Configuration mode. Configure SSO redundancy mode at this time. The software will prompt to reboot the Standby Supervisor (in slot 5) - confirm to reboot - exit configuration mode and save the configuration.

 

In SSO mode

 

After changing the license boot level in sso, you only need to restart the standby engine. The engine will synchronize the configuration and license.
