ASR9K A9K-NV-CLUSTER-LIC License Question

Hi 

I have few questions about nVEdge cluster license.

1. Is it really necessary for building cluster?

2. When should I install the license? before build cluster or after that?

3. If I don't the NV lic, what will happen? only have error warning or it can't be clustered.

Why do I ask those question, because recently I met a vrf lic problem, and had opened the case.

The TAC told me that try to re-install the lic by using "(admin)#clear license" first, then re-install it again.

But I found the command "(admin)#clear license" will remove all the license file within the box, and can't specify it.(I have VRF lic and NV Cluster lic in my router)

So if I performing that command, means the NV lic will be uninstalled too. I am wondering that whether the cluster will be crashed after uninstalling it.(although TAC told it won't)

BTW, I found the lab machine which is in cisco lab. It also hadn't install NV lic in it, but worked fine.

Thanks,

Tom

nothing will happen if you don't buy one, just many syslogs, and soon enough your account rep will find out and you'll have to eventually buy it.
