I am trying to get a understanding of the PIX licensing. Is the license software based? I have a PIX that is old and flaky and we are going to replace it. Can we take that license and put it in a new PIX if we buy a restricted box because it is cheaper? If so how do you get the license info from an existing box?
There is a license key and I believe that it is specific to the box. So if you get a replacement box and try to input the license key from the old box I do not think that it will work. You need to order the replacement box with the type of license that you really need.
So I guess when you order it you have to send Cisco, or whoever you buy it from, some code from the box and then they send you a key? I would really like to get a handle on how this licensing system really works. The Microsoft licensing is public info for the most part but I can find anything on Cisco stuff.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
