Products 
G-Series 
G3L3-LIC 

Symptoms 
Advanced router license cannot be applied.
"No match for serial number" 

Cause
On the G-Series routing products, the use of certain router features (OSPFv3, OSPF, VRRP, DVMRP, and/or PIM-SM) require the purchase and installation of an Advanced Router License. The Extended ACLs function identically to the Standard ACLs, and require no licensing. 

An Advanced Router License may be purchased in the form of Part# G3L3-LIC, which is node-locked and must be applied individually to each unit using switching command 'set license INCREMENT...' as described in the G-Series CLI Reference Guide:
 G3(su)->set license INCREMENT G3advrouter 2008.0830 permanent B1519290349A 08031829904a
No match for serial number 08031829904a
G3(su)->set license INCREMENT G3advrouter 2008.0830 permanent B1519290349A 08031829904A
Validating license
License successfully validated and set
G3(su)->show license
key: INCREMENT G3advrouter 2008.0830 permanent B1519290349A 08031829904A
status: Active
no licenses for g3ipv6router
G3(su)->

Note1:
 In order to obtain the license key to be configured as described above, it is first necessary to redeem your purchased license entitlement at "Enterasys Licensing" (10833). 
Note2: The 'set license' command must use an upper-case serial number, though the license string/file itself may display the serial number as lower-case. The command will not be accepted unless the typed serial number matches to both the serial number encrypted into the license key during Activation, and to the actual serial number of the switch to which it is being applied; or error message "No match for serial number <serial#>" will be issued. 
Exception: If the "ID_STRING=" serial number prefix is used when Activating a license (10833), the serial number as displayed in the resulting license string/file will in all cases have any letters displayed as upper-case - eliminating the case sensitivity confusion though not the case sensitivity itself. 

Solution/Workaround
