Cisco catalyst 9500-48Y4C License

Hello 

We have Cisco 9500 with Essentials license but when I run "show license summary" see that license status is EVAL MODE, what should I do to activate it?


Smart Licensing is ENABLED

Registration:
Status: UNREGISTERED
Export-Controlled Functionality: NOT ALLOWED

License Authorization:
Status: EVAL MODE
Evaluation Period Remaining: 89 days, 23 hours, 11 minutes, 13 seconds

License Usage:
License Entitlement tag Count Status
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(C9500 Network Essentials) 1 EVAL MODE
(C9500 48Y4C DNA Essent...) 1 EVAL MODE

 

Appreciate your help

 

Thanks

You need to enable smart License to register with Cisco smart License Server.

 

here is the guide :

Network Essentials feature. 
The way I see it, leave it alone.  When the license expires, nothing will happen.  

Essentials License is the-most-basic license set.  If it has to "roll back", not that it would, there is no other level other than "Essentials" for the license feature to roll back to.
