Hi @Mustapha Bassim 

I looks like you have smart licensing enabled. To disable it you can use the following commands:

    switch(config)# no license smart enable
    switch(config)# no feature license smart

And then you can install the license.

However, just wanted to let you know that licensing on N9K is honor based, meaning you do not have to install the license for the features to work. You can simply have them purchased and thats all.

 

Stay safe,

Sergiu

I think if the device runs 9. X nexus code it will be a smart License.

 

below command show you what License mode :

# show license status
