Nexus 5596 Licensing - filename exceeds 30 characters

Hi,

I'm trying to licensing two Nexus 5596 (Evaluated License), when i'm enter the "install license bootflash:LICENSE.lic" the Nexus reflect this error:

"Installing license failed: Invalid filename size, filename exceeds 30 characters".

After i changed the name the Nexus reflect this error:

"Installing license failed: Invalid/Corrupt license file"

I tried to clear the license from one switch and now i'm cannot reinstall the license.

In the mail that cisco sent to me with the license they wrote that do not change the filename.

Thanks in advance,

Nadav Katz.

Hi Eric,

I received the Nexus switches with corrupted license.

The license team of cisco was generate a new license and send it to me.
