Loading a License File for a Stack

Loading a License File for a Stack

The procedure for loading a license in a stack system is as follows:
  1. Apply for a license and upload the license file to the master switch of the stack system.

    The license is bound to the ESN of a physical device. Each stack member has an independent ESN. You can apply for a license for multiple switches in a stack or for each switch.

  2. Run the license active file-name command in the user view to activate the uploaded license file.
    • If you obtained multiple license files, run the license active file-name command for each file and specify the corresponding values for file-name. The system will find the matching ESN to activate each license file.

    • If you obtained only one license file, run the license active file-name command once.

  3. Run the display license command to check whether a license file has been loaded. If the license status is Normal, the license file has been successfully loaded.

If you load a license on multiple devices or chassis and then set up a stack system, the features activated for the stack are a combination of features activated for the member devices or chassis. If the license is loaded on only one device or chassis and is not loaded on the other member devices or chassis, the license takes effect for the entire stack system and does not affect the stack upgrade or active/standby switchover. If the stack system is split, the device or chassis previously used for applying for a license is not affected. However, no configuration can be added to the license controlled features on the device or chassis for which no license is applied. To prevent this issue, you are advised to apply for a license for all the devices or chassis in a stack system.

The following example describes how to load licenses in a stack of CE8800, CE7800, CE6800, and CE5800 series switches.
  • In versions earlier than V200R002C50

    • If you obtained multiple license files:

      <HUAWEI> license active license_file_1.dat
      Now activing the license......done.
      MainBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
      SlaveBoard:
      Error: The ESN of the license file does not match with the device.
      
      <HUAWEI> license active license_file_2.dat
      Now activing the license......done.
      MainBoard:
      Error: The ESN of the license file does not match with the device.
      SlaveBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
      
    • If you obtained only one license file:

      <HUAWEI> license active license_file.dat
      Now activing the license...........done.
      MainBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
      SlaveBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
      
  • In V200R002C50 and later versions

    • If you obtained multiple license files:

      <HUAWEI> license active license_file_1.dat
      Now activing the license......
      Info: The license file is verified successfully, but there are some minor errors, including
             ESN mismatch
      Warning: This operation may use the trial license instead of current license, may reduce current resources or functions on slot 2. Continue?
       [Y/N]: n      //If this message is displayed when the first license file is loaded, enter y or n as required.
      MainBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
      SlaveBoard:
      Info: Skip activating the license because it will reduce current resource or function.
      
      <HUAWEI> license active license_file_2.dat
      Now activing the license......
      Info: The license file is verified successfully, but there are some minor errors, including
             ESN mismatch
      Warning: This operation may use the trial license instead of current license, may reduce current resources or functions on slot 1. Continue?
       [Y/N]: n      //When the second license file is being loaded, you must enter n; otherwise, the first license file is overwritten.
      MainBoard:
      Info: Skip activating the license because it will reduce current resource or function.
      SlaveBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
      

      To load the license file to all switches without verifying whether their ESNs match the ESN in the license file, enter y when the message "Warning: This operation may use the trial license instead of current license" is displayed. If a switch's ESN does not match the ESN in the license file, the license for this switch will enter the Trial state. To ensure that the license file is loaded to only the switches whose ESNs match the ESN in the license file, enter n at the prompt.

    • If you obtained only one license file:

      <HUAWEI> license active license_file.dat
      Now activing the license......done.
      MainBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
      SlaveBoard:
      Info: Succeeded in activating the license file on the board.
