Yet Another ASA VPN Licensing Question :)

Answered Question

I have a pretty good understanding of ASA VPN concepts, but not sure about this scenario.  Two questions regarding 5525 VPN SSL Anyconnect Premium Licensing.

1.  Assuming we already own a ASA 5525-x with 750 Anyconnect Essentials and Mobile ( p/n ASA5525VPN-EM750K9 ) and want the ability for 200 Clientless (Anyconnect Premium) VPN connections, including mobile devices, what part number do I need?  

 

2.  Assuming we do not yet own a ASA5525, but want the same 200 clientless VPN connections plus mobile device connectivity, what part number do I need?   I'm assuming this is correct  >>  ASA5525VPN-PM250K9

Thanks!

David,

1. AnyConnect Essentials and Premium are mutually exclusive. If you purchase the Premium license and activate it on your ASA it will deactivate your AnyConnect Essentials. For what it's worth, the Mobile license works with either.

2. Yes, that's the correct SKU for the ASA 5525-X with 250 AnyConnect Premium plus AnyConnect Mobile bundle.

Marvin, understood.  I guess what I was asking is if I purchased the 5525 with the Anyconnect Essentials license, is there an upgrade SKU to move to Premium?  I think I found a thread, ironically in which you replied that there is not an upgrade sku?  If not, what would I need to order to upgrade from essentials to premium?

It's no problem - I sometimes look for an answer to a question myself and find my own 2 year old post explaining the answer. As long as I don't find my 2 week old answer, I'm OK with that. :)

Anyhow, no there's not a SKU to upgrade Essentials to Premium. All the Premium upgrade SKUs are between Premium licensed user tiers (10-25, 25-50, 50-100 etc.).

If you're a persuasive customer and make a strong case with your reseller they may be able to get a deal with Cisco outside the normal channels to get some relief as a customer satisfaction issue. That's very much a case by case thing though and not the normal fulfillment method.

Yes, that's correct.
