How to Activate Demo License on a Cisco 880 Router?

September 18 2014 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Cisco License

If you have a Cisco router 880 series with an advsecurity license but you find out your unable to use some protocols which you like to use. How to do that? In the following example that a Cisco 880 user shared here, and it told you how to activate Demo License on a Cisco 880 router?

I found out that the Cisco router 881w had an demo license of the advipsecurty license.

router#sh license feature

Feature name      Enforcement  Evaluation  Clear Allowed  Enabled

advipservices         yes         yes           yes         no

advsecurity           no          no            yes         yes

 

Which wasn’t actived. But your able to activate this license due the following command.

router#license boot module c880-data level ?

advipservices     advipservices level

advsecurity       advsecurity level

 

If you select the advipservices you will need to reboot the router. after the reboot the advipservices is activate now you have time to buy the correct license SL-880-AIS (upgrade option) [ Cisco 880 Advanced IP Services Image Feature License ]

You can download either also a demo license via the following linkhttp://www.cisco.com/web/go/license/index.html you need a CCO account to get the demo license.

 

If you have the correct license activated than you will see the following output

router#sh license feature

Feature name      Enforcement  Evaluation  Clear Allowed  Enabled

advipservices         yes         yes          yes          yes

advsecurity           no          no           yes          no

 

Now you have to restart the router and your new license should be activated.
