Re: Switch IOS License

You must have enabled the evaluation license (good for 60 days only). If you aren't using any features specific to ipservices, you can change back to the permanent license level (ipbase or lanbase).

For now, the switch will operate normally until reload. If the current license is expired, a reload will revert the switch back to the licensed level and any activated features that require the higher level license will not operate.

If you are using and require continued use of ipservices-specific features, you must purchase and install a permanent license.

Please see the following paper for a complete explanation of Catalyst 3k licensing:

You're welcome.

The 3750 product data sheet lists the part numbers for an upgrade license. Depending on which type your permananet license is (IPBASE or LANBASE), the part number you would need for your model of switch is either:


C3750X-24 IP Base to IP Services E-License



C3750X-24 LAN Base to IP Services E-License

(Reference Table 20 here)
