I got an ASA5520 with a CSC-SSM-10 (100 nodes) in use. There are about 200 host behind.
What happen, when the node license will be overrun. E.g. all 200 hosts are connecting through the firewall/contentfilter
at the same time?
You can issue "sh csc node-count" on the ASA CLI.
License upgrade notice Error Message license-upgrade-notice: Your daily node counts (daily_count) has
exceeded your licensed seats (seats) by offset. Please upgrade your license.
License-upgrade-notice: Your daily node counts (300) has exceeded your licensed seats (100) by 200. Please upgrade your license.
Explanation This system log message is generated when CSC SSM detects more nodes connected to the CSC SSM than are specified in the current license. In addition to this message, a notification e-mail is sent to the administrator.
• daily_count—The daily node count that has connected to the CSC SSM • seats—The number of seats of the CSC SSM license • offset—The daily count minus the number of seats
Recommended Action Contact Cisco for a license upgrade.
