NCS5504 VRF license

Hi all!

 

We started to use in production new NCS5504.

We have no any L3VPN installed because we don't use MPLS. We have only 2 VRF instances.

From this document https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/routers/network-convergence-system-5500-series/datasheet-c78-740765.html

I see that L3VPN license is needed when: Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) instances greater than 8 per system. Up to 8 management VRFs are included with BASIC-LSR license

But I see countdown timer:

Re: NCS5504 VRF license

No issues it will work just fine, but you should upgrade to 633 for good measures. Its an EMR release. 6.3.2 isn't.
