I have some new 9200 switches coming for a client which utilise Cisco Smart licensing. From what ive read, a switch needs internet access to register its license. Theres many instances where this would not be possible. Is there a way to register a license from my browser and then load something, like a license string, onto the switch? All with the switch not needing internet?
Not using the latest Cisco-recommended software seems unworkable. I'd be disappointed and surprised if theres no way for licensing to work without internet.
