Hi,

can someone confirm me that when I do an license upgrade from 20 to 50 contexts in a FWSM, I don't need to do a reload?

Thank you.

Best regards,

Noberto

When you enter a new activation key you have to reload the firewall before that activation key takes effect.

Hi,

my doubt it's because I read in this document: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asdm/6_2/user/guide/license.html#wp1273162

that the reload it's only required in the following situations:

Table 4-8 License Reloading Requirements

Model
License Action Requiring Reload

ASA 5505 and ASA 5510

Changing between the Base and Security Plus license.

All models

Changing the Encryption license.

All models

Downgrading any license (for example, going from 10 contexts  to 2 contexts).

Note If a temporary  license expires, and the permanent license is a downgrade, then you do not need  to immediately reload the security appliance; the next time you reload, the  permanent license is restored.

But it's needed in all licenses upgrade then?

Thank you.

Best regards,

I think that applies only to ASA models. From the 3.1 FWSM configuration guide -

FWSM license
