Hi,


   I wanna install a license file (.lic) in a Nexus 7000


    I'm reading the Nexus 7000 License Configuration Guide and in that document I read that you need to access the console (Active

    Supervisor Module) before you use the install license command..


    My question is, can I execute the same command (install license) via SSH or Telnet ??


    Thanks in Advanced


      My Best Regards,

Yes you can via telnet or SSH install license. As long as the license file is already uploaded to your flash card on your router.

Hi lomonaco


I think you should be, but never tried before .. This document says you need to install it thro console :


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/4_2/nx-os/licensing/guide/Cisco_Nexus_7000_Series_NX-OS_Licensing_Guide__Release_4.2_chapter1.html


but with other devices like routers, we have the "license install" command which we do it remote.. so, i think it must be the same here..


Does it give you an error when you configure this remote , thro telnet or SSH ?
