Licenses for 5545x. "How to install licenses from CD?"

Hello

 

I have (4) new ASA5545x'

 

I also received (2) sets of the following licenses which came CD in white cardboard envelopes:

 

         -Cisco ASA 55xx Series

         Any Connnect Mobile

         ASA 5545 License

         Product: ASA-AC-M-5545=

         The Product key is in the envelope

 

         -Cisco ASA 5545-X CX AVC

         and Web Security Essentials (3 year Promo)

         ASA 5545 License

         Product: ASA5545-AW3Y-PR=

         The Product key is in the envelope

 

         -Cisco Any Connect 55xx Series

         Phone Licenses

         Product: ASA-AC-PH-5545=

         The Product key is in the envelope

 

The ASA's will be configured for HA

Can someone provide a step-by-step guide for this implementation.

The Mobile and Phone licenses

The Mobile and Phone licenses must be installed on the ASA proper. Here is a link to the procedure.

While you are on the ASA licensing portal, also check on your unit to make sure you have the (free) 3DES-AES license activated. If not, you can also request that on the portal.

The AVC and WSE license combo is on the NGFW / CX module and must be activated from within the PRSM (Prime Security Manager - the management GUI) after you've performed the initial setup per the Quick Start Guide. Here is a link to the "Managing System Licenses" section of the PRSM User Guide.

The PRSM GUI is built into

The PRSM GUI is built into the code that loads and runs on the ASA CX module itself. It's a web-based front end to manage configure, build reports etc. for the Application Visibility and Control (AVC) and Web Securities Essentials (WSE) features you've purchased the licensing for.

Please follow the Quick Start Guide I linked above.

That guide will step you through the necessary steps to bootstrap the system so it is ready to be licensed and you can build policies etc. to further the goal of network protection.

Marvin Thank you for the

Marvin

 

Thank you for the response.

 

Just so I understand, to install the " -Cisco ASA 5545-X CX AVC and Web Security Essentials (3 year Promo), I need to use the Cisco Prime GUI?

You're welcome.Yes, Prime

You're welcome.

Yes, Prime Security Manager (PRSM) is the GUI required for 98% of the CX module operations. Basically anything beyond initial setup requires you to use the PRSM interface. PRSM is available "on-box" (no additional cost) or "off-box" (A licensed product that runs on a VM and can be used to manage multiple firewalls' CX modules with common policies, etc.

I say PRSM specifically because "Prime" is an overall branding / loosely defined "architecture" Cisco uses for many management products - over 20 last I counted.

Marvin All I have is a GUI

All I have is a GUI for Cisco Prime INfrastructure. The only thing we have on that is our Wireless AP information.

 

This doesn't sound like the same thing you are talking about, does

it?

Marvin. I accessed the GUI

Marvin.

 

I accessed the GUI and uploaded the .lic file. I then enabled the features under the: License/"i want to"/Manage features.

 

I then issued the SHOW VERSION command expecting to see all (3) PAK's, but only see the activation keys for the 2 ip applied directly to the ASA. Is there a command to verify the license for 5545-X CX AVC & Web Security Essentials is available on the ASA?

The licenses for the NGFW

The licenses for the NGFW features on the CX modules (AVC, WSE and/or IPS) are only viewable on PRSM itself, not in the base ASA.

Log into PRSM and go to Administration > Licenses. Here's a link to the User Guide on that section.
