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)
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.
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 :(
Yes it is possible and here are the details:
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.
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.
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.
Hi, just want drop it here
Electronic Cisco DNA Upgrade License for C9200 switches. Note: when upgrading from Cisco DNA Essentials to Cisco DNA Advantage, Network Essentials is upgraded to Network Advantage
Has anyone had any luck with changing the licensing?
Based on the data sheet there doesn't look like there is an option to upgrade the licenses.
