Require EIGRP Full Functionality on 4506E switch - IOS issue

Hello Everyone,

I have a question based on switches IOS. Right now i am working on one setup which has two 4506-E switches with SUP 7E and i want to run EIGRP on this two switches with is connecting to Internet router and PSTN router in full mesh design

When i enable EIGRP on router it works fine but on this switches it automatically enable the command under EIGRP for stub routing as shown in below config.

router eigrp 100

network x.x.x.x

eigrp stub connected summary

From Cisco Switches came with this IOS Image cat4500e-universal.SPA.03.04.00.SG.151-2.SG.bin

Later i upgraded the switch with this ios image cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.05.01.E.152-1.E1.bin

Still the full funtionality of EIGRP is not supported but SSH worked on both switches which confirms image is upgraded properly. I read on cisco release notes that switch must have enterprise licence to support full EIGRP. Please advise how can i achieve it.

Kindly find the show verson output when the switch received from cisco before upgrading the image.

You need to activate enterprise services license. Here is link how to do it:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/XE3.5.0E/15.21E/configuration/guide/swadmin.html#wp1347232

Here are also some useful links:

It seems that you don't have to type in the license any longer which is mutual trust from Cisco that you already got the correct license but it is not enforced.

Thanks for the reply Daniel

As per your post device already has the licence and it just need enforcement. If i use this command ("license right-to-use activate feature-name") then EIGRP full feature should work.

Am i correct ?

Yes, that's what I figure from the configuration guide. There seems to be a command to set the license level on boot, so have a look at that as well. Wouldn't be nice to have it boot up on IP Base and EIGRP not coming up.
