doubt abt the EMI and SMI images on 3560 switches

hi all i have a silly doubt. if i buy a 3560 with the SMI image loaded in it. and then i install a EMI image in it then will it support the EMI images. i mean my main doubt is is it just abt the images or do we need a license on the switch for running a EMI image in it.

regards

Re: doubt abt the EMI and SMI images on 3560 switches

in short, YES, you can load an EMI on your 3560 as it's currently configured.

(no license key or such to activate is required)

if you have an SMI switch that can support EMI image, as in most cases, then you can upgrade to the EMI image with the EMI software downloaded from cisco.com.

technically, you are required to have purchased an EMI license to be legal to use the image.

(although you can load an EMI image at anytime)

the license is NOT installed anywhere, just a piece of paper that confirms you paid for the software.

if you need further information on licensing please contact cisco licensing at http://cisco.com/go/license (requires CCO login) or call 800.553.2447 and ask for 'licensing'.

About the best way to find out about your CCO login is to go to http://www.cisco.com and click on Registration. From there you can go to help or faqs. If you remember your CCO userid you can send an email to

cco-locksmith@cisco.com to reset your password.

Access to software downloads depends on your contract and CCO access level.
