Installing additional ASA feature licences

We currently have an ASA 5512x failolver pair in production running security plus licences (see below).  We recenly purchased 2 Anyconnect Mobility licences and I am tasked with installing them on the appliances.  I have redeemed the PAKs accociated with these licences and received the activation keys.  Will applying these activation key's "merge" with the existing security plus licences or will it overwrite them and we will lose functionality\features ?  We require both the security plus and anyconnect for mobile functionality.

Thanks for the clarification

Installing additional ASA feature licences

Hi,

Usually the ASA tells which currently enabled licenses might be disabled due to entering/confirming the Actication Key.

To me it seems strange that in the above text it states that Failover and the 3DES/AES Encryption is disabled?

Re:Installing additional ASA feature licences

Hi Aah,

Installing the Any connect license will not override the existing Security plus license. You can go ahead and install it without any fear.

Re:Installing additional ASA feature licences

I disabled failover on the 2nd passive ASA and installed the new activation key (generated from the Anyconnect mobility PAK) on the ASA and reloaded.  The key did not merge with the exististing security plus license.  It overworte the license with a Base license that included Any Connect Mobility functionality.  We lost all security plus features.  I had to revert to my original activation key.

Installing additional ASA feature licences

AnyConnect for Mobile is only required on one of the members in an 8.3 or later installation (as are all X series since they require 8.6 or later). I've put a couple of these on and they've never had any impact on the other licensed features.

I suspect someone may have either ordered the wrong SKU or issued an incorrect license. You should open a TAC case and ask for the Global licensing team to resolve.

Re: Installing additional ASA feature licences

Hi,

There was a similiar situation here on the forums few days ago.

A user was provided the wrong license which activated the licensing for some new feature on the ASA but disabled an existing one.

You should contact the people through which you aquired the license and ask this to be corrected.

Installing additional ASA feature licences

If Jouni and I come to the same conclusion within the same minute across 6 time zones it must be the right answer.

Good Day

Can you help me ? i was wondering If you have your configuration of both ASA HA in Active/Active mode or Active/Stand-by mode ?

I'm asking that because i saw in your command output Failover :     Active/Active perpetual

Thanks
