ERS5500 trial license
« on: February 27, 2017, 08:07:59 AM »
Hi Guys,

quick question about trial licenses on ERS5500 and the behaviour when they expire:

My customer is migrating from their old 5500's to newer machines and needs to construct a SMLT cluster on the old network to make migration possible. As this is a transition we want to fix it by installing the advanced license trial untill we can move to the new VSP's.

What happens to the current cluster when the trial expires? Will all licensed features keep running untill rebooted, or will SMLT etc stop running instantaneously?

If the cluster stops running before we can complete the migration we would be in trouble, but it seems stupid to buy advanced licenses for the 2 units if we only need it for a few days.


Kind regards,

Johan Witters

Hi Johan - as far as I know all licensed features will be stopped once the trial limit is reached.
