I Have C9300L-24T-4G Device And I Want To Add License C9300L 24P DNA Advantage To Device On Cisco Smart Account.
Device Already Have License C9300L 24P Network Advantage And It Is Working Well, Also Using Cisco Smart Account.
But When I Add License C9300L 24P DNA Advantage The Reservation Status Says Not Installed.
I Have A Few Questions About The Above:
1. I Followed the Reservation Steps According to the Documentation Issued by Cisco, But Still No Success, Is There Any Documentation That Can Help Me In The Above Problem.
2. On My Smart Account, Device C9300L-24T-4G Still Reserved 2 Licenses : C9300L 24P Network Advantage And C9300L 24P DNA Advantage, Can The Device Use License C9300L 24P DNA Advantage Even If Reservation Status Is Not Installed ?
Below I have attached the Device Log File
Solved! Go to Solution.
16.12.2r is likely a ROMMON version (indicated by 'r'). The IOSXE version is displayed in the first line of "show version".
Did you follow the steps under "Update Reserved Licenses" procedure? After reserving additional licenses you would generate a new Auth Code (including both Network Advantage and DNA Advantage licenses) that needs to be installed on the switch.
I will try upgrading the firmware to 17.3.2 to see if that works
17.3.4 has already been released on the first of July 2021. Upgrade to that instead.
In IOSXE 17.3.2 and newer there's Smart Licensing Using Policy mechanims in place which is a slightly different from standard Smart Licensing.
The device no longer needs to be registered to the Smart Account prior to using the license but as per policy it needs to report the license usage to Cisco at certain periods (depends on whether perpetual or subscription licenses are in use) so the license usage is reflected on the Smart Account.
