Hi there,

The license file gets uploaded to the Publisher (first node) only. You don't have to remove demo license, you may get a message stating that the demo license is being removed.

You can run the License Unit Report to confirm that both your nodes are licenses correctly.

To configure the Publisher and Subscriber redundancy you'll need to configure your Callmanager Groups correctly, see the following documents for more information.

Hi Cristian,

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Releases 7.1(2) and 6.1(3) introduce these licensing enhancements.

Description

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Releases 7.1(2) and 6.1(3) identify the state of a license; that is, if it is missing, if it is a demo license, or if it is an uploaded license. In addition, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration warns you whether Cisco Unified Communications Manager currently operates with demo licenses, with an insufficient number of licenses, or with an incorrect software feature license.

GUI Changes

The following windows display the state of licenses in Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Administration:

- Cisco Unified Communications Manager currently operates with demo licenses, so upload the appropriate license files.

- Cisco Unified Communications Manager currently operates with an insufficient number of licenses, so upload additional license files.

- Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not currently use the correct software feature license. In this case, the Cisco CallManager service stops and does not start until you upload

the appropriate software version license and restart the Cisco CallManager service.

• License File Upload (System > Licensing > License File Upload)-This window displays a message

that uploading the license file removes the demo licenses for the feature.

Here is the procedure :)

The Node License Manager is the Publisher so it is the MAC Address that you provide for any licensing additions/requirements;

Licenses are generated for requested Cisco CallManager nodes (servers in a Cisco CallManager cluster - with seats) and the phones that are associated with those nodes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Uploading a License File

Use the following procedure to upload a license file to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server with the matching MAC address that is provided when a license file is requested. For information about obtaining a license file, see the "Obtaining a License File" section. The Cisco Unified Communications Manager server where the license file is loaded takes on the functionality of the license manager.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**Note: Upload the license file only on the first node of Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Procedure

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1 Choose System > Licensing > License File Upload.

The License File Upload window displays.

Step 2 The Existing License Files drop-down list box displays the license files that are already uploaded to the server.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note To view the file content of any existing files, click View File.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 3 To choose a new license file to upload, click Upload License File.

The Upload File pop-up window displays.

Step 4 To upload to the server, click Browse to choose a license file.

Step 5 Click Upload.

After the upload process is complete, the Upload Result file displays.

Step 6 Click Close.

Step 7 In the License File Upload window, the status of the uploaded file displays.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/admin/6_0_1/ccmcfg/b02licfu.html#wp1049590

The system overwrites the starter licence when you obtain and upload your permanent licenses.

Hope this helps!
