Nexus 5500 Licensing

Can anyone help me with information on how to activate a Nexus enterprise license which I appear to have. Also if activated will the 5K support policy based routing or is this a 7K only feature still ?

I seem to have an enterprise license but it does not seem to be in use (See below), and the documentation I followed did not explain how to do it very well at all.

nexus# sh license

license_SSI15510EA7_10.lic:

May be the license file was damaged during download.  Try reinstalling it again.

Hi Paul,

License seems to be installed correctly. It is just waiting for features related to it to be started for it to show "In Use". You can see the related feature by the following link:

See Table 2 for N5k.
