Nexus 3548, lic and feature

Hi people ! :) 

 

So I have bought a Nexus 3548, it came with this:

show lic usage

24P_LIC_PKG Yes - In use Never -
24P_UPG_PKG No - Unused -
LAN_BASE_SERVICES_PKG Yes - In use Never -

 

I must have gotten a bit confused while ordering, because I was 100% sure that this would provide me with vrf-lite functionality ? Does anyone know ?

Hi,

There is also this document that says/

VRF-lite requires an Enterprise services license.

link:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus3548/sw/unicast/503_A1_1/l3_nx-os/l3_virtual.html#wp1082329

Can you test by trying to configure a vrf context?

vrf context test

etc..

interface ex/x

vrf member test

Can you issue any of these commands with the license you have?

HTH

Re: Nexus 3548, lic and feature

It is so confusing, I also found the document that says it dont need enterprise. As of now I have installed an eval for enterprise - and all works.

 

But when I started out I was able to make vrf's with the lics I listed. No problem.. I did have a problem creating subinterfaces and other... 

 

The strange thing is that now, I Have this (added the eval):

Feature Ins Lic Status Expiry Date Comments

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
24P_LIC_PKG Yes - In use Never -
24P_UPG_PKG No - Unused -
LAN_BASE_SERVICES_PKG Yes - In use Never -
ALGO_BOOST_SERVICES_PKG No - Unused -
LAN1K9_ENT_SERVICES_PKG No - Unused -
LAN_ENTERPRISE_SERVICES_PKG Yes - Unused 13 Oct 2018 -
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I have enabled lots of stuff...:

feature telnet
feature bash-shell
feature scp-server
feature ospf
feature bgp
feature interface-vlan
feature hsrp
feature lldp
feature vtp
feature nat

 

But when I try to look at what lic is for what.. there is nothing. Looks like the ent is not even in use ? I do not understand why ?  Now I have bgp running, vrf's.. ospf..etc. and this is the output:

 

xxx-001(config)# sh lic usage LAN_BASE_SERVICES_PKG
Application
---------------------------------------
ospf
---------------------------------------
xxx-001(config)# sh lic usage LAN_ENTERPRISE_SERVICES_PKG
---------------------------------------
xxx-001(config)# sh lic usage LAN1K9_ENT_SERVICES_PKG
---------------------------------------
xxx-001(config)#
xxx-001(config)#

 

I do have one more nexus, I am going to unpack it now and try the same config without installing an eval..
