Objective

Cisco Smart Software Licensing is a new way of thinking about licensing. It simplifies the licensing experience across the enterprise making it easier to purchase, deploy, track, and renew Cisco Software. It provides visibility into license ownership and consumption through a single, simple user interface.

With Smart Software Manager, you can organize and view your licenses in groups called virtual accounts. Registering your devices in your virtual account allows you to manage your licenses for departments, areas, or locations within your organization. By using product instance registration tokens, you can easily register your devices with their unique device identifiers (UDIs).

Note: To learn how to register a Smart Software License on an RV34x Series Router, click here for instructions.

However, in scenarios like you want to upgrade a registered device to a new model or it has been replaced under warranty, physically removing it from your network will not delete its product instance from your virtual account. Which means it will still consume the licenses that were used for registration. In this case, you have to manually deregister the device and delete its product instance from your virtual account. Once the product instance is deregistered, it will no longer appear in the Smart Software Manager and the licenses it uses will be made available for use by other products in the virtual account.

This article provides instructions on how to deregister a device from your virtual account.

Applicable Devices

  • RV34x Series
