How to register a 4506-E with Smart Licensing?

ROBERT T

How do I register a 4500-E SUP-8 3.10.x or 3.11.x with smart licensing?

 

I found the following command to change it to DNA Licensing, but I cannot find a command that works to register it.

 

license right-to-use activate addon dna-advantage subscription acceptEula

no your command is NOT to change it to DNA licensing, it is to activate the license that DNA can manage the device

this is traditional right-to-use licensing ,

-> YOU are responsible that you have the right to use (purchased) the license that you activated.

there is no technical limitation, no registration, no license file needed.

Re: 3850, 3650 and 4506E - smart licensing
Smart Licensing is supported from 16.9.X and later. If the appliances are running earlier firmware versions, Smart Licensing is not supported and no harm will happen without Smart Licensing.

so does that mean that even when I upgrade from 3.8.10 to 3.10/3.11 a DNA license is‘nt needed and everything will work further with the traditional license model?
