The procedure to install license

Hi,

I haven't installed any license on router, switch, and fw before and always wanted to know the steps to install it...

Would you please provide me how to install the license from A to Z?

How can I get the license first of all?

Thank you in advance!

Order a license through normal Cisco sales channels and processes. The product must be activated by installing license “keys." After purchasing a software feature, you will:

Receive an email with the Product Authorization Key (PAK) or you can receive the Claim Certificate (PAK) by regular mail. Note: if your order was placed through a partner, you may need to contact your partner to obtain a copy of this email.

Register the PAK at www.cisco.com/go/license

Receive an activation email with the license key(s)

Install key(s) rom the activation key email using the license install command

Mark,

Thank you so much! How and where can I get the license?

Do I have to purchase it from vendor? How will they give me the license? (Thru email?)

Thanks!
