I've upgraded a PI 1.3 installation to PI 2.1 using the migration method (taking an application backup, creating a new VM using the 2.1 VA of proper size, doing the basic configuration to replicate that of the old machine and finally restoring the application backup). According to the docs, that should have been it - licenses should have been migrated to the new VUDI and version. Technically, the upgrade went very well, but I'm left with no licenses ("None Detected" and I'm on EVAL now). The TAC case opened didn't lead to anything yet, so I'm querying the forum as to what I might have done wrong given nobody else seems to have that problem and TAC not getting a grip on how to help me. Is my theory (about a simple upgrade being sufficient to migrate the lics) wrong?
The PI 2.1 Ordering and Licensing Guide states:
Ordering Information for Existing Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.x Customers
If you have an active SASU service contract on Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.x, then you don’t need to purchase or order anything to upgrade. Simply download the latest Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 software from Cisco.com to upgrade.
The Release Notes describing the migration upgrade state:
Prime Infrastructure application backups include license data. Reinstalling on a new system or virtual machine does not require you to rehost your licenses, so long as you use a recent application backup to restore your license data from the old system to the upgraded system.
my new TAC engineer solved the case by finding CSCuj32554 which is about old wcs*.lic files in the licenses directory breaking the migration. It also contains a procedure for cleaning up the mess which worked out (with some adaptation, due to fallout from earlier attempts of solving the issue).
So if you are hitting this one, make sure you check on this BugId.
For inline upgrades (same server), when upgrading from 1.0/1.1,1.2/1.3 to 2.1, the licenses should work without adding a base license for 2.0. However, if you are upgrading and you would need a re-host (new servers for 2.1), you would need a base 1.2 license provided that you have an active SASU contract.
If it is the other case then send the below information to license team to regenerate the License for 2.1
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
