6120 Fixed Port License Usage

Answered Question
Apr 12th, 2010

I was looking around in the 6120 via cmd line and noticed that the "show license usage" output shows that there is an 8 port license but than none are in use. If that is the case do what does licensing the remaining 12 ports do? What happens if you use two of those for northbound Ethernet uplinks?

Hi..  I have a similar output in my lab setup. In my lab setup, i did not purchase any license and i can use port 19 and 20, in fact all of the ports. It looks like the license is base on trust and not really enforced.  Rgds Eng Wee

Cool, that is what I was thinking as well. The client I am working with will still purchase the port licenses but we just needed to be able to use them now.
