My company is currently in the middle of a project in Hong Kong that requires 20 C3850 switches. with this we are purchasing Prime Infrastructure licenses (from our Contractor/vendor). the order was recently placed and the quote mentions that it includes L-MGMT3X-3K-K9. I have since read that this is at end of life and is being replace with DCNM. The end of Sale date license was Sept 7, 2018 and the Last Ship Date License will be December 6. 2018. I have a number of questions regarding this:
1. is DCNM inherently included with all switches ordered after Sept 7th?
2. is there a risk to a system functionality or stability if the system includes switches with L-MGMT3X-3K-K9 and others (bought later) with DCNM?
3. if Cisco has already shipped our switches (which is possible as we have a delivery date of Late December) ... is it recommended to change to DCNM?
