Cisco 881 IOS upgrade

HI,

Due to a bug int the IOS (F4 loosing routing information) i needed to upgrade the IOS from 15.0.1-M4 to the latest one which is 15.1.

Is it ok to do without valid Smartnet contract? Cisco website allowed me to download the IOS and then put it on the router.

Due you need some sort of a license to upgrade the IOS?

Thanks,

Michal

Considering you need to resolve a serious defect in their product, you're perfectly entitled to run this software for which you have paid with good money.

Moreover as you say, you have been allowed to download without a support contract.

After the upgrade, you can ask check the "show license all" output to see what licenses are available.

If the proper license is not there, they can enable "right to use" license in IOS.   

what is the "proper license"?
