What do I do with the FirePower license file I received?
We have been receiving some feedback where users are receiving an error message that their license is invalid! Please review the following information which should solve your problem.
In order to properly apply a license to a FireSIGHT Managment Center, you must only copy and paste the encrypted text block into the License Form on the DC. The only text (known as the encrypted text block) to be pasted into the text box on the Add License Page.
Hopefully this helps some of you out there having licensing issues.
You should upgrade to Release 6.1. That release changed the scheme as follows:
For systems using Classic Licenses, the system replicates all licenses installed on the active Firepower Management Center to the standby Firepower Management Center, instead of requiring installation of additional licenses.
what also needs to be mentioned is that the TAMC license file actually contains two separate licenses (URL,MALWARE) and that each license needs to be installed separately. You will get an error message if you attempt to install both licenses as a single license
