Hi,

If you already have IP base license and that is all you need, then you bo not need to register for a new license.  If you want to go from IP base to IP services, then you need a new license.

Hi,

4500X, WS-X45-SUP7L-E, WS-X45-SUP7-E and the new SUP8  licenses used to be one license per chassis and the license was tied to  the serial number of the chassis.  Recently Cisco changed some policies  on licensing with the latest software update and as of IOS XE 3.4.xSG  and later the licenses are now Right to Use (RTU).  This means you wont  have to go through the painful PAK activation process and tie the PAK to  the serial number of the chassis and then apply the license to the  chassis etc.  But you do have to be running the new IOS version for this  to work.

"Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.4.2SG introduces the Permanent Right-to-Use (PRTU) license feature."

This is brand new so if anyone gets a chance to test it out please update us.  Thanks!
