Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 LAN To IP Base - Licensing Implications
Oct 29, 2012
I upgraded an image on 3750 from Lan base to IP base, it worked fine. howver im just wondering if there any licensing implications, did the upgrade a few weeks ago, would the switches still work on a temp license somehow?
We have two 3750-x stacked switches with IP base license. We need to upgrade them to IP services license. I read some where that it is possible to install IP serivces license to only management switch and no need to purchase/install same license to other switches on the stack. But, I could not find/recall where I read it and as far as I know it was not official cisco documentation.
I have 3750 Switch and need to activate the ipservices on it , it is need a license file to switch from ipbase to ipservices , if i installed the ipservices image from cisco site , do i still need an activation key to use it??
I am bringing up a 3750x and a 2911 to replace a 3745 router with switchport module. I was plannng on moving all the VLAN interfaces off the 3745 onto the 3750x and turning up EIGRP. I discoved the 3750 has the LAN Base license, so I can't run eigrp off of it. My question or worry now is, will the LAN base license prevent the switch from doing interface VLAN routing between the different VLAN's configured on it or will I have keep all the VLAN interfaces on the new router and just have a router on a stick setup?
I've got a bunch of 3750-X switches all running IP Base and acting as a routed access layer. They run OSPF in a totally stubby area with the distribution layer (Nexus 7K) as the ABR. We also have a physically separate management network into which the fa0 management interface of the 3750-X is connected. The management network itself runs OSPF and has multiple subnets and external access.
On the 3750-X, I'd ideally like to be able to run some sort of separate OSPF process for the management network or at the very least have a static default route for management traffic pointing out the fa0 interface, but clearly not have it interfere with the main default route for data traffic coming from the N7K ABR. Normally I'd just create a management VRF, sling the fa0 interface into it and run a separate OSPF process in that VRF. The problem is you can't create VRFs in IP Base! Surely there must be a way to do this? Cisco don't really expect customers to upgrade to IP Services just to have a working OOB Management network, do they?!
We have just purchased and installed the L3 daughter card for our 5548UPs and have also installed the L3 Enterprise Services pkg. The problem is, I cannot enable the EIGRP feature even though we have the Ent Svc lic. After doing a little more research, I see that the Lan Base lic is required to enable the L3 card and many of the L3 features (the card is currently in an "offline" state).
From what I have read on this board, the Lan Base lic is a free license that should be included with the L3 daughter card -- however, Cisco licensing will not issue me that license without a sales order (even though a Nexus engineer said it was included, the licensing group will not issue with an official sales order). Well, our vendor ordered the card and the Ent Svcs lic but for some reason we were never sent a PAK for the LAN Base lic.
I currently have a 3560G switch running c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.122-58.SE2 I have a spare 3560 V2 switch I want to configure and have ready in case of a failure. This spare switch is running c3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-55.SE5 My plan was to pull the IOS image from the current switch and upload it to the spare that way I have an "idnetical" switch. From what I have read, there are some feature differences between "ipbase" and "ipservices". However, when I run the show license command on the production switch, I get an unrecongnized command error. So that throws into my confusion as if its running an ipservices image, shouldn't it have a license file?
We have ordered a new 4507 chasis with a supervisor engine.We have also ordered a spare supervisor engine.As per Cisco documentation WS-X45-SUP7L-E is shipped with a default IP base license.My question is that is this a e-delivery or a paper base license.The Cisco documentation also states that we can use the same license to upgrade both the redundant and active supervisor from lan base to IP base.
I have a 4 member stack of 3750's. We would like to take advantage of wccp and we understand that we will need to upgrade our switch licensing from IPBase to IPServices. My question is do we need to pay for a license for each member in the stack or does one IPServices license upgrade cover the whole stack?
I will be start with the disclaimer that I am very technical, but a huge novice to the enterprise-grade Cisco swtiches.
How IOS software versions are licensed on a Catalyst 4507 switch? I am very confused at this point.
For example, if I buy IOS Enterprise Services for a new Catalyst 4507 switch, what form does the software license take? Is the license embedded on the switch? Does it come as an e-mail or certificate with a PAK? Does it come on a CD?
We sold a 4507 with Enterprise Services to a client, and they are saying they don't have the right IOS version installed. I assumed there must be some license key they needed, but the Cisco licensing help desk does not seem to indicate there are any licenesable items on our sales order number (even though IOS Enterprise Services is a line item on the sales order).
I know there was a disk that came with the switch with an Enterprise Services .BIN file on it, but I had assumed that was just a software version image, similar to the images I can download off the Cisco website. But is this actually the license key?
Since I can download image files off the Cisco website, I assumed there must be some other key needed to activate the license.
Switch is Catalyst WS-C4507R+E Redundant Supervisors are WS-X45-SUP6-E (Supervisor 6-E)
I am having some question around Prime Infrastructure..Does a general document exists regarding the licensing count of monitored devices ? Indeed I am wondering about the specific points. Is it true that :
- A 3750 stack unit count as one (for example a 4 units stack consumes 4 license) ? - A WLC (except 5500) does not consume a license but only the Lightweight APs. - An autonomous AP does not consumes a Lifecycle licence ?
When mutiple Policy based routing configured on 7600 routers, did the router performace degraded with the number of policy based routing rules?Also, did 7600 running 12.x use per-flow based routing or per packet based routing?
I have a stack of 2 x 3750X switches these are running 12.2(55)SE5. I needed to add some static IP routes and found that the ‘ip routing’ command is not supported. I came across a document that stated “On switches running the LAN base feature, static routing on VLANs is supported only with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(58)SE and later.” So I have upgraded to 12.2(58)SE2, but ‘ip routing’ is still not a valid command.
The release notes state:“On the Cisco Catalyst 3560-X and 3750-X Series, it adds support for 16 static IPv4 routes in the LAN Base image.”
I have read other posts that talk about running the ‘sdm prefer routing’ command which I have done, but I am still unable to add any routes or run the ‘ip routing’ command.
I have been looking to find out the list of features that the IP Base IOS has for the 3750X series switch. What would be ideal is a comparable list but essentially I need to know which of the LAN Base/IP Base/IP Services has SSH functionality.
Full feature set for IP Base with the 3750x.I just wanted to verify that I could create a routed port, turn ip routing on, and create static routes as well as a default route. From what I can find, there shouldn't be a problem with this on the IP Base Feature Set, I just wanted to verify. Or any link for the Features of IP Base on the 3750x.
We have observed increase of CPU utilization of 50% after upgrade from 15.0(1)SE3 to 15.0(2).The SDM template is "desktop default" template.The increase of CPU utilization in Switches with LAN Base after upgrade is about 10%.
How to find the cause for the 50% increase ?This is command is the output of 15.0(2). The calculated sum for 5min process-utilization is 21% plus 1% interrupt is 22 %. Where is the rest ?

We have purchased a number of 2911 routers.We got Base & security license as we wanted to enable encryption. However we probably wont use the security.We are replacing 2811 routers.Unfortunately the 2811 routers have FXS ports with 2 - 4 POTS handsets - I completely forgot about these ports when I was ordering.Now I have VIC3-FXS cards which are ok in the 2911 but unfortunately I cant get them to work.I am missing PVDMs (well adapters anyway), and even if I got them the router wont take any commands relating to voice due to the license.Is is possible to 'rehost' the security and turn it into a UC ?I am new to these 2911 and Licensing.
I am having a ws-3750x-12s-s switch . I want to upgrade it from ipbase to ip service. after installing ip service liciense file, when i gave command " show license detail" i found there 3 index . one is for ip base -active (permanent) ..2nd is for ip service-active(permanent) 3rd is again ip service but inactive( period 8weeks 2days) , then i cleared 1st one by giving command "clear ipbase" and reboot. but still 2 index .both for ipservice one is permanent-active another is inactive . so my question is how can i remove 2nd index which one is inactive and time period for 8weeks and 2days..?? becasue i don't need it. and it will make any problem in future ?
I'd like to know if is it possible to load lan base image on Cisco Switch 2960 TC-S. This model (WS-C2960-48TC-S) come with lan lite image and it's the same (phisically) of the 2960 TC-L (lan base image).If I try to upload the lan base image on flash of 2960 TC-S will works?? ..or the switch goes damaged?
I'm building a wired closet to aggregate user's connections, Im planning to have 5x 3750X stacked switches and there is a need to run EIGRP, I'm thinking to order one switch with IP service image while the rest will run IP base image, is it workable scenario and what are the drawbacks of such combination of images ?
I am trying to block all dhcp packets through 2960S lan base IOS. But when i set no trust interface for dhcp snooping, the dhcp packet source port will be err-disabled. Is there any other solution to block any DHCP packet through switch without interface or other service outage?Is possible to block DHCP packet through specific VLAN?
