I was wondering if there is a way to actually change the base license in an ACS deployment. I know this isn't the recommended approach to accomplish what I wanted to do but I'd appreciate if someone could tell me how to do it if possible.
I need to add an ACS to a distributed deployment so instead of building the new ACS server from scratch, I decided it would have been a good idea to simply clone the machine and change the IP address. All was well until I tried to add it to the primary and I got an error saying that they have the same license file applied. When I go to the license section, there's no place for me to change the license.
The reason I didn't rebuild it from scratch is that the person I was working with no longer had the ISO and their Internet connection is very slow.
Does the acs reset-config command remove the license as well or just the policies, etc? Maybe I could do a config backup and reset it, then load the new policies?
The reset-config command would be a right step. However, alone it won't help. When you take ACS backup, it apparently captures the license file so you when you reset the config, install new license, the old license in the backup also gets restored.
Please follow the below listed steps (This can only be possible when we have ACS in distributed environment)
Issue acs reset-config re-license it with new license. Replicate the config from the master. This should restore the full config and keep the new license.
We have an enhancement filed on this as well.
CSCtj03807 ACS 5 should allow base permanent licenses to be replaced
ACS 5 should allow base permanent licenses to be replaced with other base permanent licenses while keeping the current configuration.
As of now, ACS 5 does not allow to migrate from a base permanent license to another base permanent license, unless the configuration is reset.
This is an enhancement request to include such a feature in future releases.
If you have two ACS machines (say A and B) and you want to replace Base Permanent on A, then as workaround you can do the following:
1) Backup A and B.
2) Make A primary and B secondary and initiate full replication.
3) Promote B to be Primary and A secondary. (If A is Log Collector then transfer that role to B)
