I am trying to install licenses generated by the customer on a 2-switch 9516-A stack. The customer provided the tokens for each switch, and then I built the license file as shown below (serial numbers are redacted):
When I try to install the file on the switch, one stack member works, but the other one fails to accept the license with the following error:
Reservation install file failed: The Reservation Authorization Code does not match the Reservation Request Code
SW1#show lic res License reservation: ENABLED
Overall status: Active: PID:C9500-16X,SN:FJC245fghij Reservation status: RESERVATION IN PROGRESS on Jun 09 04:45:35 2021 EDT Export-Controlled Functionality: NOT ALLOWED Request code: CC-ZC9500-16X:FJC245fghij-BVeWfkjPW-4C Standby: PID:C9500-16X,SN:FJC245abcde Reservation status: SPECIFIC INSTALLED on May 24 14:09:31 2022 EDT Export-Controlled Functionality: ALLOWED Last Confirmation code: a1fa6394
So, one switch accepted the license but the other did not. I have tried the customer-generated licenses on several differnt pairs of stacked switches with the same result: one fails to take the license, the other switch accepts it. I find it hard to believe that the customer consistently generated the wrong token for one switch in each stack. I'm wondering if I'm hitting a bug, or otherwise doing something else incorrectly?
