Smart license cat9k

Hi,

I have registered the license on new catalyst 9300 model using smart license manager portal. Now it is not possible to connect the switch again to internet or to use proxy methods to send license usage . I am not using any DNA product in my environment. So only using routing and switching part.

My question is , what is going to happen ? Is the switch going to continue working properly ?

Regards,

Hi,

 Is the switch going to continue working properly ?

Yes, the switch will work with no issues. You don't have to be connected to the Internet.

Thanks a lot Reza for reply !  I need to deploy couple of distribution switches in other locations and I was doubting about license issue  thinking of ordering other type or other vendor. Now I will go ahead and deploy CAT9Ks

You should be fine. With licenses, as long as they are valid, usually, you configure and apply it once. The license stays the same even with IOS upgrades.

Good Luck!

Re: Smart license cat9k

Once a license is registered the next renewal attempt takes place after 6 months thus you need to connect to the CSSM to get license register.
