I have upgraded a spare RSP with an installed vrf license to 4.3.4 in a spare chassie. When moving this RSP to another chassie we get an error message during bootup. It is whining about the vrf license.
Anybody had the same problem?
It says that the license is acquired

What is this RMA license expire thing, and how do one get rid of it? Should i reinstall the vrf-license in the new chassie?
You should not worry about that. You are probably hitting CSCue12028.
As such i would recommend to locate your ".lic" file on disk0: or harddisk: and re-install it.
The correct steps to re-install the licenses would be (using a Cisco-support username)
Copy the license files to a secure location (just in case)
(admin)#clear license (and hit the YES)
(admin)# license add disk0:license.lic
(admin-config)#no license xxx location xxx
re-configure the license using the “license xxx location xxx” in admin-config mode
Thanx for reply.
There still seems to be some problem, becouse 'sh license udi' reports the S/N of my spare chassis and not my running chassie. So i cannot remove the license and i am not allowed to add the original license (the one with the right S/N) becouse the RSP still believe in the old chassis S/N.
While trying to remove;
Error: 'License Manager' detected the 'warning' condition 'There were still some other licenses active'.
While trying to add the correct one;
Error: 'License Manager' detected the 'warning' condition 'Database and chassis UDI information do not match'.
can you provide me this:
admin show license
admin show license trace
show install active summary
admin show run
Thanx, but I will go to the TAC whith this one.
The serial does not match according to below
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:(admin)# sh inventory chassis
Wed Apr 23 14:54:42.066 METDST
NAME: "chassis ASR-9006-DC", DESCR: "ASR-9006 DC Chassis"
PID: ASR-9006-DC, VID: V01, SN: FOX1xxxGMV9
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:(admin)#sh license udi
Wed Apr 23 14:54:45.234 METDST
Local Chassis UDI Information:
PID : ASR-9006-DC
S/N : FOX1xxxGH7C
Operation ID: 1
I'm guessing the outcome is to install the RSP without the license and then load on the chassis with the correct serial #.
I'm doing similar and want to know when/how I can move a license to a new RSP in the same chassis.
Thanks in advance
