Not sure on the 89X series, but on the 1900/2900/3900 routers for NBAR2 support from 15.2(4)M2 or 15.3M forward, you need to have the DATA feature license in order to enable the advanced protocol pack.  15.2(4)M1 and back to 15.2(2)T there's no license required to enable it.

Of course Cisco doesn't have this published in ANY documentation that is reachable.  The link from the 15.3M release notes for "Protocol Pack Licensing" has been 404 for a week and a half.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for the support, depending on the IOS software, you need the DATA license in order to enable NBAR 2.

Q. What features require a software license and activation on the Cisco 890 Series?

A. The default and only feature set for the Cisco 890 Series is Advanced IP Services. The appropriate license file is installed on the platform by Cisco manufacturing to support the default feature set. In addition, feature licenses exist for memory, Cisco Wide Area Application Services Express (WAASx), and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Check by feature (type NBAR2)
