CME and EvalRightToUse

Hello,

     We have a couple CME's installed a customer site right now (cutting over tomorrow) that are showing:

StoreIndex: 7   Feature: cme-srst                          Version: 1.0

        License Type: EvalRightToUse

        License State: Active, In Use

            Evaluation total period: 8  weeks 4  days

            Evaluation period left: 7  weeks 2  days

            Period used: 1  week  1  day

            Transition date: May 14 2012 06:10:53

        License Count: 25/0  (In-use/Violation)

        License Priority: Low

After running around in Circles with Cisco Licensing and Cisco TAC for a week we are now being told that when the evaluation license expires it will automatically become a permenant license.  I am not getting a warm and fuzzy feeling about this (we have been given a few different answers prior to this one), and I am a bit worried about having a couple sites go out of service in 7 weeks. 

Searching through the support forums I have seen a few other people posting about this, and being given this same answer, (or a similar answer, some say it becomes Right to Use, some say it becomes a 12 year period, etc.).  I haven't seen anyone confirm this though. I am looking for some confirmation from the community from someone that has seen this transition happen, and hopefully make me a little more comfortable with this answer.

We are running CME 9.0 (IOS 15.2(2)T)

Thank you

    Denis

Thanks Rob.  I hadn't stumbled across that doc yet (or if I had I missed that section).  makes me feel a bit better

CME and EvalRightToUse

Hi Denis,

You are always welcome

That portion of the doc was just added recently due to the uncertainty

that the Eval RTU licensing change caused for so many customers.

You're good to go here.

Cheers!

Rob
