Re: VPN only license for HA

No you do not.

"For active/standby pairs, only the primary headend is required to have a VPN Only license."

If you should lose the primary unit due to equipment failure, the Secondary unit operating in Active role will continue to recognize the "shared" license for 30 days.

If the Primary unit is RMA'd under support, Cisco licensing will re-issue a new VPN only license for it.
