How Do I Install a License File for a CSS?

How Do I Install a License File for a CSS?

Perform the following operations to install a license file for a CSS:

  1. Apply for a license, which is bound to the ESN of a physical device.
    1. Run the display license esn command to obtain the ESNs of two member switches in the CSS.
    2. Apply for one license using the two ESNs.

      For details about how to apply for a license, see S Series Switch License Use Guide.

    How to install a license file for a CSS varies. For details, see the following table.

    Table 8-9  Applying for a license

    Applying for and Loading a License for Two Devices Before a CSS Is Set Up

    V200R009 and Later Versions

    Versions Earlier Than V200R009

    Both devices do not apply for and install a license file.

    Apply for a license using the ESNs of the two devices.

    The license must contain the ESNs of the two devices. Therefore, you must apply for a new license using the ESNs of the two devices.

    Both devices have applied for a license but do not have a license loaded.

    • If the control items of the two license files are the same, split the CSS, load the two standalone devices with their respective licenses, and then set up a CSS of the two devices again. Alternatively, apply for a license that contains the ESNs of the two devices through the ESN change process.
    • If the control items of the two license files are different, apply for a license that contains the ESNs of the two devices through the ESN change process.

    Only one device has a license file installed.

    Apply for a license that contains the ESNs of the two devices through the ESN change process.

    The two devices each have a license file installed.

    • If the control items of the two license files are the same, you do not need to apply for a new license. The existing licenses can still be used after the two devices set up a CSS.
    • If the control items of the two license files are different, apply for a license that contains the ESNs of the two devices through the ESN change process.
  2. Upload the obtained license to the system active MPU.
  3. Run the license active command to activate the license. The standby switch will synchronize with this license.
  4. After the license file is installed successfully, you can run the display license command to check license file information.

After the CSS splits, the license is still valid on the two member switches.

NOTE:
  • You must have permissions to perform operations on the license self-service system. For details about rights and how to apply for rights, see the License Use Guide.

  • The following provides more details about the license for a CSS:
    • In versions earlier than V200R009, you must apply for one license for the two ESNs. If the license has only the ESN of the master chassis, the license status is normal, and the license-controlled features can take effect; however, the license status becomes Trial (with a 60-day trial period) after an active/standby switchover. If the license has only the ESN of the standby chassis, the license status is also Trial.

    • In V200R009 and later versions, you can apply for one license for the two ESNs; alternatively, you can apply for and install one license file for each of the two ESNs before setting up a CSS and ensure that the control items of the two licenses are the same.
      • If the control items of the license files on the master and standby chassis are the same, the standby chassis uses its own license file without synchronizing with that of the master chassis. The license file of the CSS can still be used after an active/standby switchover.
      • If the control items of the license files on the master and standby chassis are different, the standby chassis synchronizes its license file with that of the master chassis. If the license file on the master chassis contains the ESN of the standby chassis, the license status of the standby chassis is normal, and the license file of the CSS can still be used after an active/standby switchover. If the license file on the master chassis does not contain the ESN of the standby chassis, the ESN in the synchronized license file of the standby chassis is different from that in the existing license file of the standby chassis. As a result, the license status of the standby chassis becomes Trial (with a 60-day trial period). After an active/standby switchover, the license status for the CSS becomes Trial.
