hello everyone,

i have 2 4500 Catalyst with VSS.

when i see the "show license summary" i see the output below

Switch_Name#show license summary
Index 0   Feature: entservices
          Period left: 8 weeks 4 days
          License Type: Evaluation
          License State: Active, Not in Use, EULA not accepted
          License Count: Non-Counted
          License Priority: None
Index 1   Feature: ipbase
          Period left: Life time
          License Type: Permanent

          License Priority: Medium

what will happen in 8 weeks after the period for the entservices license?

going by the docs sso is supported in ipbase , so if that's the only reason your buying a license you shouldn't have too

Q.    What different levels of software licenses are available on the Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-Series?
A.     The following levels are available:

   Cisco IOS® XE Software LAN Base: This feature set on the bundles provides Layer 2 features for access.

   Cisco IOS XE Software IP Base: This feature set is upgradable with a software activation license (SAL). It includes all Layer 2 features and some basic Layer 3 features. ISSU and SSO are supported in this package.

Hi

any advanced routing , pbr or any services that are only available on the entservices license will stop working , it will revert to ipbase license , depending what you have running on want to keep whether you an use ipbase or entservices , entservices gives you all features basically

..........................................

The  IP Base image does not support enhanced routing features such as  NSF/SSO, BGP, EIGRP, EIGRPv6, OSPF, OSPFv3, IS-IS, Internetwork Packet  Exchange (IPX), AppleTalk, VRF-lite, and Policy-Based Routing (PBR). The  IP Base image supports EIGRP-Stub for limited routing.

Enterprise Services: Upgradable with a Software Activation License (SAL); supports full Layer 3 protocols and advanced features such as complete routing scalability, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Virtual Routing and Forwarding, Policy-Based Routing, and so on.

thank you so much for the quick respond.
i dont use any routing protocol or VRF, PBR....
based on the commands below, I understand that i have to buy and and update the license, because i need the SSO and also additionally i use the Virtual Domain.

switch virtual domain 30
+
redundancy
 mode sso
 main-cpu
  auto-sync standard

is that correct?

thank you so much Mark,
then i dont buy anything and if i will have any issue then i will disconnect all the Access Layer Switches from the Second Distribution Switch (1x 4500 Catalyst) and wait for the license.
during that period i will have my Network operational with the first 4500 Catalyst.

please advice if there is a misunderstanding :)
