ISSUE about Permanent License


When I search something about L-ASA-AC-M, I find this:

In this web I see: You can have one permanent activation key installed. The permanent activation key includes all licensed features in a single key.

I am confuzed by these words whether I can not active SEC-PLUS and AC-M features in a same time, or I need to combine these two licenses to a single permanent activation key?


Thanks for any reply~

Actually you have two types of feature license... either you can get the time based license... which is counted for the specific period say 1 year..... you can have both permanent license and time based license together....


say you have permanent license for VPN and time based license for botnet filter..... then you can have both installed....

When you activate a permanent license, it overwrites the currently-running permanent and temporary licenses and becomes the running license.

Hi,Yes that is correct for a


Yes that is correct for a core license, when you upgrade from Base to security plus then base license will get overwritten by the security plus license....

By anyconnect you have is a specific feature license, which should be upgradable one.


Have you reloaded after upgrading from base license to sec plus? and then only you have tried to add feature license for anyconnect right?
