Add a Perpetual License
On the chassis, find the appropriate license info. NOTE: You must be in
admin mode to run this command:
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router#admin Thu Mar 23 09:30:21.857 UTC RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router(admin)#show license udi Thu Mar 23 09:30:25.285 UTC Local Chassis UDI Information: PID : ASR-9904-AC S/N : FOXXXXXXXXX Operation ID: 0
The PID and SN are needed to redeem the PAK.
SCP the file to the router.
Add the license (still in admin mode):
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router(admin)#license add disk0a:/usr/FOXXXXXXXXX_20170323113900442.lic Thu Mar 23 09:41:34.745 UTC Info: License add successful for feature(s): "A9K-200G-IVRF" License command "license add disk0a:/usr/FOXXXXXXXXX_20170323113900442.lic sdr Owner " completed successfully.
Apply a Perpetual License
Verify the license is available:
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router#show license available Thu Mar 23 09:51:27.512 UTC FeatureID: A9K-200G-IVRF (Slot based, Permanent) Total licenses 1 Status: Available 1 Pool: Owner Total licenses in pool: 1 Status: Available 1
If this license is slot-based (and it is in this case), find the slot number for the card:
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router#show inventory Thu Mar 23 09:50:35.761 UTC .... NAME: "module 0/0/CPU0", DESCR: "200G Modular Linecard, Packet Transport Optimized" PID: A9K-MOD200-TR, VID: V01, SN: FOC2035NWJV ....
In this case we know that we need 0/0/CPU0.
Drop into admin mode and apply the license to the slot:
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:router(admin-config)#license A9K-200G-IVRF location 0/0/CPU0
Commit the change.
NOTE: The license will not show active until 5 interfaces have been configured in separate VRFs. If fewer than five VRFs will be used, configuring dummy VRFs and rolling the configuration back will suffice.
