I have a 3560-X running LANBase. I put it on a temporary license to get routing going and have purchased/received an upgrade license. Here's my question:
If the temporary license runs out, does the switch immediately revert to LANBase or does it wait until the next reboot after the license runs out?
The reason I'm asking is that I would like to apply the upgrade license but don't want to reboot what is effectively the site's core. So can I just install the new license which should set it as the "license level on next boot" and then let the switch run on the temporary license until its next reboot (which may be past the temp license's expiration date)?
Temporary licenses are used for evaluating new capabilities or in emergency situations. A temporary license allows a feature set to be used for 60 days of actual usage. When the 60-day period expires, the device will continue to operate normally until reloaded. After the reload, the device will default to the original functionality before the temporary license was enabled. Only the actual time that the temporary license is enabled counts towards the 60-day limit. The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) can provide an extension license for longer trials or other circumstances.
