C9200 upgrade from Essentials to Advanced

Hi,

is it possible to upgrade C9200 switch base license from Network Essentials to Network Advantage? Or is the license

permanently tied to each SKU without the posibility of an upgrade?

If the upgrade is possible, does it apply for both C9200 and C9200L?

(C9300 can be upgraded via C9300-lic SKU, i am looking for a similar option for Catalyst 9200)

 

Thanks,

Pavel

The add-on licensing package includes the Cisco DNA Premier, Cisco DNA Advantage and Cisco DNA Essentials options. In addition to on-box capabilities, the features available with this package provide Cisco innovations on the switch, as well as on Cisco DNA Center. The Cisco DNA add-on licenses are available as a subscription.

Check it for more information: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/catalyst-9200-series-switches/nb-06-cat9200-ser-data-sheet-cte-en.html

This does not answer my question at all.

I am aware that there is Base license (Network Essentials and Network Advantage) which is permanent, and add-on license }DNA Essentials/Advantage/Premier] which is term based.

I am asking, if Base license can be upgraded from Network Essentials to Network Advantage.

Oh sorry, i didnt understood your question.

 

License consumption is easily determined by the package itself. While base licenses are always permanent and without an expiration date, add-on licenses have to be purchased for a 3, 5, or 7 year term (and hence are also known as term-based licenses). Table 9 shows the combinations of base and add-on licenses that must be purchased.

 

You can upgrade it, purchasing license.

Re: C9200 upgrade from Essentials to Advanced

I am aware of the screenshot you have attached as well. It describes possible license combination and informs you, that at license renewal, you can downgrade add-on license from DNA Advantage to DNA Essential. There not a word about Base license upgrade.

If it can be done, what is the SKU? For C9300 there is C9300-LIC. For C9200 i have not found any :(

Once again these are SKUs for DNA add-on term license, NOT for Base License change.

The Cisco DNA licenses - Essentials, Advantage, Premier - are NOT add-on licenses. They are THE licenses, have a mandatory selection requirement at time of purchase, and with each license also come the Network Essentials and Network Advantage software features per the license purchased.

Re: C9200 upgrade from Essentials to Advanced

Hi,

I just talked about that with local Cisco office. They confirmed, that it will be possible. The SKU are just not yet in CCW, as c9200 are quite new. SKU should appear within few weeks and it should work the same way as with c9300.

 

HTH,

Re: C9200 upgrade from Essentials to Advanced

Thank you!  I had the same question.  You specifically asked about upgrading from Network Essentials to Network Advantage (in simpler terms, but not 100% accurate, upgrading from layer 2 to layer 3), and a LOT of people on this thread answered about upgrading from DNA Essentials to Advantage.  Network, not DNA.
