Installing a License

Installing a License


  • You have logged in to a CE switch.

  • You have obtained the license file of the CE switch and uploaded the license file to the switch.


    In a stack with multiple switches, if a license file is applied for each stack member, you need to compress multiple .dat license files into a .zip file, upload the .zip file to the stack master, and then load the file.

    How Do I Load a License for a Stack System? shows how to load a license file in a stack.


  1. Activate the license file.

    Run license activefilename

    The license file is activated and the corresponding function is authorized.


    You do not need to activate the license on the standby MPU. The license is synchronized from the active MPU to the standby MPU. This ensures that the license on the new active MPU is operational after an active/standby switchover.

    Licenses of the IPS and NGFW modules cannot be directly installed and activated on CE12800 series switches and must be installed on the management planes of the IPS and NGFW modules. For details, see:

Follow-up Procedure

If the license file fails to be activated, see A License File Fails to Be Activated.
